Helping those on the Autism Spectrum build skills to navigate life’s challenges independently, have genuine friendships, find and maintain employment, and most importantly achieve happiness and success in life.
Have you noticed…

…with your child?
The most valuable thing that RDI has taught me is that the connections and “rules of life” need to be learned through experiences. In our home we have two autistic children. Even though they both have ASD, they exhibit opposite characteristics of the spectrum. Where one is sensory seeking, the other is avoidant; where one is anxiety/perfectionist driven, the other checks out. But RDI is working both both children because they are learning from actual experiences with natural consequences.
Having this new “RDI mentality” has helped so much in our home. Now I am able to look at everything in a new way. Everything last year was a huge fight, and now it is completely different.

Many essential oils that are derived from plants, herbs, flowers, and roots have beneficial therapeutic qualities. Aromatherapy involves the “burning” of essential oils to elicit a desired effect; for example, lavendar is known to induce calmness and relaxation.Only experienced professionals and/or those knowledable in the properties of aromatherapy should attempt to blend oils or utilize them in practice, as some oil combinations can be toxic, while others can burn the skin.Chair massage, also known as seated massage, is fast becoming one of the most popular ways in which to practice. Generally, chair massage is administered onsite at various locations, including health fairs, airports, shopping malls and in corporate settings.
