RDI Goals, Concepts & Program InformationASD: A New Perspective Podcast
Sometimes there is a misconception that RDI does not work with children who are non-verbal, that this is not for them. But Dr. Rachelle Sheely talks about her work with children on the spectrum that were non-verbal and how RDI® can be used with every child.
A lot of people think there’s this continuum of dynamic on one end and static on the other, where you got this opposite… That sort of the opposite of static, and it’s not at all. On the one end, you’ve got static, but on the other end you’ve got chaotic or random. And that’s what systems theories tell us, and there are two very important ways in which dynamic situations or systems are different from their chaotic ones.
For some reason, the necessary MindGuiding Relationship that typically forms between parent and child during the first year of life doesn’t happen with autistic individuals–but with RDI®, it is possible to re-establish this relationship and nurture the growth mindset in your child.
With the rate of employment among ASD adults low and rates of depression and suicide high, it’s clear that something isn’t working. RDI addresses this deficit.
RDI® focuses on well-being in children with Autism, rather than assessments and measurements, giving them independence and true quality of life.
RDI® is a developmental pathway to gradually moving more and more and more towards self-management and self-guiding in a dynamic world.
We are all impacted in one way or another during this crisis and dealing with COVID-19 but what if we could use this opportunity with our family to overcome crisis in a uniquely RDI way? Imagine what our children could learn about family and what it means...
Children with autism have a desire for everything to stay the same, but what if you could help your kids embrace and even look forward to change?
Static Thinking vs Dynamic Thinking When you live in a static thinking world, things either are either similar to one another or they are different. When you live in a dynamic thinking world things are similar AND they are different. So what happens in a world when...
In RDI, we really believe in parents and we also believe that there is a developmental structure inherent in the way children are raised worldwide. And that just because that’s difficult for parents who have a child on the spectrum, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
One of the things at the Pan African Congress For Autism that impressed me and really didn’t surprise me was that parents and professionals alike had the same concern when they were thinking about the individuals that they deal with who were on the spectrum and their families.
Find hope in the new year with the RDI® remediation model.
What I liked about the conversation was that these six things show a self-reflection, they show the hard work he’s done, they actually kind of document the guiding relationship he had with his parents.
In RDI we believe there is a parallel process between the consultant and the parent, and the parent and the child… We’re giving them the tools so they can begin to think of their own objectives, they can come up with them.
There’s still an implicit assumption that people with Autism have to fake it, or that if you just get them to behave a certain way, that that’s a sign of great progress. We have to change it.
Dr. Steven Gutstein explains how the RDI Model doesn’t teach skills, but improves the brain’s ability to function in a way that leads to more successful outcomes.
