Talking About Autism with the Extended Family
How do you help the people closest to you understand what autism is and how it affects your family? Dr. Rachelle Sheely, co-founder of the RDIconnect model for remediating autism, talks about sharing the diagnosis with your family, how to help them understand what autism is and when to walk away to care for your family first.
RDI and Adapting: Changing When Things Aren't Working (part 2)
Welcome back to ASD: A New Perspective, the podcast show where we help you understand what is going on in the mind of your child, and we do encourage you that growth for your child is possible. I'm Kat Lee, and in this podcast, Dr. Gutstein continues his conversation with us about adapting and reminds us that it is so important for both parents and professionals to know of the value of adapting for our children.
Just Noticeable Differences:: A Key to Independence
Children with autism don't have an innate motivation for growth-seeking, rather they display a desire to maintain stability (they want everything to stay the same!) But what if you could help introduce change slowly and comfortably into your kid's lives in a way that made them not only embrace change but look forward to it? Join Dr. Rachelle Sheely, the co-founder of RDIconnect for this month's podcast episode of ASD, A New Perspective. https://www.rdiconnect.com/
