MS/MA in Special Education, Certified RDI Consultant and Training Supervisor
Owner, The Missing Piece LLC
The Missing Piece LLC opened in 2005, in order to offer Relationship Development Intervention® (RDI) services, academic consultation, homeschooling guidance to parents, and tutoring services. The Missing Piece LLC is focused on serving the needs of students with autism spectrum disorders and their families. The focus of services is ensuring that clients achieve quality of life goals that include meaningful relationships, productive work, community involvement, and appropriate education.
Relationship Development Intervention (RDI®) offers treatment programs for individuals and families that face Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental difficulties. It is often described as “the missing piece of the puzzle” in the treatment of ASD because instead of focusing on symptoms, our program works to activate the grow-seeking drive essential to remediating the universal impairments associated with ASD.
RDI® programs teach parents how to guide their child to seek out and succeed in truly reciprocal relationships, while addressing key core issues such as motivation, communication, emotional regulation, episodic memory, rapid attention-shifting, self awareness, appraisal, executive functioning, flexible thinking and creative problem solving.
