RDI Conference for Autism Hosted at Kent State
Kent State University’s College of Education, Health and Human Services will host a Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) for Autism Conference on Monday, June 18 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Moulton Hall Ballroom.
The conference is an opportunity for families with children on the autism spectrum and area professionals to meet, discuss and learn about RDI, which focuses on remediating the challenges of autism that can impair an individual's ability to manage and function in the world. Throughout the day, there will be break-out sessions to practice RDI lessons that help individuals build dynamic skills that increase daily life functioning and engagement with others.
The keynote speaker will be Heather Benner-Ohl, a RDI consultant and owner of The Missing Piece LLC, from Columbus. The cost to attend is $100 and includes conference handouts, specialized instruction and lunch.
This is an opportunity to combine educational and practical application aspects of RDI to better support those around you on the autism spectrum. Those in need of professional development credit to maintain certifications are highly encouraged to attend.
The conference is co-sponsored by the Autism Society of Greater Akron and the Autism Society of Greater Cleveland.
A limited number of family scholarships are available for the conference by registering through the Autism Society of Greater Cleveland website: https://conta.cc/2Hf7yMX
