As a parent, we experience much joy when our autistic child gains the ability to answer static questions, but what does it look like for our child to communicate in a much deeper sense, and how do we help them improve?
In the RDI program, our focus is not on language when we talk about speech therapy, it is about RDI lifestyle and daily life opportunities, simple life activities that promote mutual communication.
By practicing consistent directive methods, you can master communication challenges, even if your child with ASD is non-verbal.
Is teaching words the best way or is there something more?
Are you willing to teach your autistic child to equip him/her for life?
