  After a six month break I am about to start doing RDI parent training again for my son.  I was just wondering if anyone else had any experience with this.  It gave us helpful ideas before but it is hard to find funding so we had to take a break.  I went to a RDI support group last night and many of the parents had very good things to say about RDI.  Anyone else have any experience with this?

It sounds awesome! Honestly, I think all of these autism behavioral therapies are great. To me, it sounds a lot like Floortime, maybe a little different, but it sounds great.

It was created by a psychologist and is a developmental approach focusing on increasing social skills.  It is parent training with a consultant where we videotape our interactions with our son and she provides feedback and suggestions.  It is a lot of work but the families that I have met seem to think it has benefitted their kids.

The consultant we use is $200 an hour.  We have decided to do it once a month rather then every other week because it is just too expensive to do every other week as recommended.
