One of the things we do when we are forming experience representations are always doing enactments. We’re not using narrative words, we’re doing enactments.
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.
When we’re using our body, we tend to use that part of the brain that manages experiences. Many people with Autism have been taught to use language as a task. As a performance-based measure. They wind up losing the sense of experience. The sense of flow with other people.
The whole point of RDI is that we want our children to become independent in the way that they’re going to become independent is by learning to think and to use their brains in a way that they need to be used.
The main obstacle if you’re a parent is that your child is not coming to you with the excitement, the motivation to grow. But RDI can help.
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.
Sometimes when an autism diagnosis comes in, there’s a veil that falls over our dreams. Will there be hope again?
