Donna Milne BSci, Grad Dip (psych), BSocSci(hon)(psych). Certified Relationship Development Intervention Consultant
When my first child was diagnosed with Autism I attended a presentation on RDI and was very excited by what it offered. I loved that it was a parent based intervention program that we could carry out at home doing everyday activities.
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 are ultimately stopping him for 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.
Being a member of Connect and Relate for Autism (A group of Australia based RDI consultants) provides fabulous mentoring and networking opportunities.
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, and recently completing a psychology degree, 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 and share in joys that are a given, with RDI, on the pathway to remediation.
