Adults and Older Teens
Moving into Adulthood with RDI®
RDI® can help all families, and your child can benefit from starting RDI® at any age, but the program is designed to promote growth, learning, development, and the ability to have relationships and perform necessary life skills, and, eventually, independence in adulthood. Your child can benefit from RDI® into their teen years and into young adulthood, if they are not yet ready for adulthood.
RDI® and High School
In this episode of Autism: A New Perspective, Kat Lee talks with special guest Dr. Sarah Wayland, an RDI® Certified Consultant and parenting coach, about raising autistic teens, RDI® and navigating high school on the spectrum.
Teens, Adults and the RDI® Program
When you have someone older the parents are often very tired, because they’ve been trying so many things. It’s very difficult for them to dream again.
Teens, Adults & Autism
As children with autism grow up and inch closer to adulthood, there are sometimes lingering concerns–What if we didn’t do enough? What if we went in the wrong direction? What if independence isn’t possible?–but growth is possible into adulthood.
Transitioning to Adulthood: Part 2
With RDI® all of the simple and everyday experiences we enjoy with our children become huge in terms of their growth.
Transitioning into Adulthood: Part 1
