I recently asked the RDI online consultant trainees (click here to learn about our training programs) to share stories of a time when they were guided by a mentor who helped them understand and do something very difficult. The purpose of this exercise was to take a personal experience and compare it to the work RDI parents do with their children on the spectrum. The stories included every day experiences such as learning to ride a bike, sailing and knitting.
While each of these may seem rather straightforward with a lot of sequential learning, what each trainee remembered was the time their parent took with them and the relationship that was so important to the learning.
What kind of guide are you?
We’ll be exploring it this summer.
