UK Workshop – Relationship Based Approaches for Autism @ The Village Hotel
Jun 4 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm

Relationship-based social communication (RBSC) support is largely omitted from health, education and social care provision for children, young people and adults with autism, yet it underpins their ability to learn, to live independently, to make and maintain friendships, to secure meaningful employment and to have good mental health.

The conference will look at how two autism RBSC interventions (Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) and Gentle Teaching) can support families of people with learning difficulties and/or autism to help their loved ones: become better able to cope with uncertainty and unpredictability; be better able to regulate their emotions; be better able to understand themselves and others. It will also support parents to understand how to navigate education, health and social care services in order to seek to secure RBSC provision for their loved ones.

Speakers:

Zoe Thompson, parent of a young adult with whom RDI is used and Head of Development, Bright Futures School where the principles of RDI are embedded into the curriculum

Sharon Bradbrook-Armit, RDI Consultant and parent of a young adult with whom RDI is used

Brendan Maguire, Director, Learning Together and Gentle Teaching Consultant

David and Jayne Mallinson, parents of a young adult with whom Gentle Teaching is used

Sarah Dunn, Headteacher Bradstow School where the Gentle Teaching approach is embedded into the curriculum

RDI Presentation

Have you ever wondered if there is a way to help your child build relationships with others? Have you heard of Relationship Development Intervention® (RDI®) and wondered what it is and how it works? Join us for this informational presentation on RDI® – a home-based, parent-led program in which parents learn to interact and communicate with their child in ways to help remediate relational difficulties caused by autism and similar neurodevelopmental disorders. You will learn how an RDI® consultant helps you think about breakdowns in the guiding relationship, and get some hands-on experience with practical strategies to use at home to build connection with your child. If you are interested in attending, or would like more information, contact Deb Berrang, RDI® ProgramCertified Consultant at 414-510-7523, or Jennifer Lemke-Pawlak, RDI® Consultant-in-Training at 414-708-6976.
