Relationship Development Intervention® (RDI®)
Often described as “the missing link” in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders, the Relationship Development Intervention® (RDI®) Program is a cognitive-developmental treatment program that helps parents learn how to guide their child to desire and succeed in genuine give-and-take relationships, while addressing key core issues, such as motivation, communication, emotional regulation, episodic memory, rapid attention-shifting, self-awareness, appraisal, executive functioning, flexible thinking, and creative problem-solving.
The RDI® Program is based on the latest scientific research about autism, the brain and developmental psychology. For more information, visit the web site at www.RDIconnect.com
