I Just Started Reading A Book About RDI. Sounds Interesting So Far. Does Anyone Here Have Experience With RDI They Can Share?

I Just Started Reading A Book About RDI. Sounds Interesting So Far. Does Anyone Here Have Experience With RDI They Can Share?

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.

RDI (Relationship Development Intervention)

RDI (Relationship Development Intervention)

Looking into RDI for our 3.5 yr old. We have done VB / ABA and floor time and want to focus on social/relationship, so looking into RDI. Our son appears to be high functioning and social remains a core deficit for us. I see couple of questions on here before. Would love to hear any feedback. There aren't any controlled studies on it but it does have one (biased) small study without control showing benefit for children (with higher IQ).

Private Schools

Private Schools

I want Relationship Development Intervention for my son. His school is ignoring his lack of dynamic intelligence. I am so frustrated because I don't have any more financial options. Sometimes I feel like we should isolate ourselves because no one understands his needs or his behavior. Does anyone feel like their child is getting what they need and at a great school? If so where are you?

My son has mild ASD, we have him on ABA, OT and Speech therapy. He has been developing really well in the last 7 months since we started.
