Victoria – RDI® Program Certified Consultant
I have a science background so that when my first child was diagnosed with autism I was right away thinking “what can we do about this”. We live in a rural location in Victoria where direct services are not that prevalent and when I discovered RDI and that it was a parent-based intervention program it meshed with our family. The going back and filling in all the developmental gaps just made sense. It is like giving him a “do over” the natural way. Not fixing the symptoms but addressing the core deficits. This involved taking away those compensations that we, as parents, had installed in our household that were ultimately stopping him from developing in the right way.
Working with a wonderful RDI Consultant and seeing the real established changes in my son made me think that this is something that I would like to do for other families.
With the RDI operating system being web based, any family in Australia and the world has access to this opportunity for remediation. Working as a behavioural therapist prior to RDI, I have experience in working with different children on the spectrum. I feel that it is a privilege to be able to work with families with RDI, and share in joys that are a given on the pathway to remediation.
