Welcome to RDIconnect

You have found us. We are glad you are here.

We embrace you and your family, your unique strengths, desires and differences. We believe in your relationships, and we know that your culture will be the foundation that will support how you achieve your potential.

Some of you will call yourselves “autistics”, some “persons with autism”, and some are parents who will feel confused, navigating an unclear pathway that includes autism. No matter what you call yourself or how you see yourself and your family, we embrace you. We embrace your unique perspective and your unique future.

We are here to serve you. We are glad you are here.

Dr. Rachelle K. Sheely and Dr. Steven E. Gutstein
