RDI stands for Relationship Development Intervention. The general idea (again I am just learning) is that development in ASD is slower and in many cases deficient in dynamic learning. And the best way to support this is through relationship models, either with an RDI consultant who trains the parents, or an RDI therapist where the parent is involved.
