RDI (Relationship Development Intervention)
RDI is a cognitive-developmental treatment program for individuals and families that face developmental difficulties.
It is often described as “the missing piece of the puzzle” in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders and has also been shown to improve neural connectivity in individuals with Reactive Attachment Disorder, ADHD, Tourette Syndrome and other developmental issues.
Early Start Denver Model (ESDM)
The Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) is a comprehensive behavioral early intervention approach for children with autism, ages 12 to 48 months.
The program encompasses a developmental curriculum that defines the skills to be taught at any given time and a set of teaching procedures used to deliver this content. It is not tied to a specific delivery setting, but can be delivered by therapy teams and/or parents in group programs or individual therapy sessions in either a clinic setting or the child’s home.
We use behavioral supports with our clients as compensatory strategies while working on underlying developmental foundations.
