Does Anyone Know If RDI Works Or Should I Go With Eblcoaching Tutoring Or Kids Connect USA Tutoring.

We're had good success with RDI (Relationship Development Integration). And this is after 15 years of ABA. I find RDI addresses core deficients of Autism. It's easier and cheaper to implement.

Therapy

Therapy

Has ABA or floor time therapy helped anyone? What about a social skills group? I'm in Utah and am wondering if there are any services here that anyone has found helpful. Especially if it's free or cheap :) My daughter is 4 so she's still in preschool.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

ABA therapy is not cheap, you will be lucky if your school provides it. If they do they would do it in a group setting, but make sure to request that when you have your next IEP .

Do Your Kids Seem Able To Do Something One Day And Then Forget How To Do It Another Day?

Do Your Kids Seem Able To Do Something One Day And Then Forget How To Do It Another Day?

One of my HFA sons seems to have abilities that come and go. One day he can tie his shoes and a few days later he forgets the process and gets frustrated. This has happened with other motor skills. He is on a GFCF diet and takes supplements and is doing well by many other accounts but these "forgotten" abilities are baffling us. We don't see a pattern related to diet.

Floor Time Vs ABA For 4 Years Old On Spectrum With Communication And Cognitive Problem

Floor Time Vs ABA For 4 Years Old On Spectrum With Communication And Cognitive Problem

I need help on this question:

Which one do you think is better?. Floor time or ABA therapy. My son has been receiving ABA therapy since Jan 2013. I am not happy about the progress. The ABA is happening in the daycare, it is not one-to-one therapy.It is a therapy within the daycare among the kids. I need somebody to tell me about the difference between them.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

Floortime was life changing for my daughter but I am not dismissing ABA as each child is different. Sometimes a combination of ABA, Floortime, RDI is a well rounded approach

What's The Best Therapy For Language Struggles?

What's The Best Therapy For Language Struggles?

My 7-year-old still struggles with his language skills. He knows what he wants to say, but can't find the words or mixes up the words. What's a successful form of therapy to help him with this? I've heard OT, or neuro type therapies tend to help "wake up" that part of the brain. He gets a little private OT, but I'm thinking it's not enough. Any advice would be helpful.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

I would try to get an IEP in his school and work on the speech with a language pathologist. All schools have them. This would be free for you and a great place to start. His IEP would have him… read more

Evaluation By A DP Vs Psychologist

Evaluation By A DP Vs Psychologist

I am thinking of having my son re-evaluated as he has come so far since his diagnosis a year and a half ago. My insurance will only cover an evaluation by a psychologist. The first time he was evaluated by a Developmental Pediatrician whom we paid out of pocket. My question is what the difference would be as far as assessment. Should I just go ahead and pay the money to have a DP re-evaluate him it is just so expensive. The average cost here in LA is $3,000.

A MyAutismTeam Member said:

Thanks everyone for the great info. Going to be taking my infant to the pediatricians this month and am going to discuss these options and see what she would recommend.
