The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

Seminar on Relationship Development Intervention (RDI)

Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) is a trademarked proprietary treatment program for families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders, as well as other individuals struggling with relationship, communications, learning, emotional and self-regulation challenges. RDI is a parent-based training and supervision program that aims to restore the development of dynamic intelligence, which is the key to improving the quality of life for special needs individuals.

Built on the foundations of the emerging science of “Neuroplasticity”, the program provides training to parents to redo the neurological pathways disrupted by Autism or other childhood disorders. RDI consultants serve as guides to the parents to gradually unravel the very complex problems of understanding how to help each vulnerable individual.

Morning Session
Learn about Dynamic Intelligence and how this ability opens the door for greater quality of life in the 2st century. Topics covered include the research on Autism, an overview of the RDI program and how it targets lack of experience sharing communication, self-awareness, episodic memories, dynamic appraisal and creative problem solving abilities in individuals with ASD.

Afternoon Session
The session will include topics on parents’ readiness to begin Autism remediation the process of working with an RDI Consultant and the RDI Learning System. Parents will learn about making life style changes through meaningful daily opportunities and dynamic communication. Audiences will learn through interactive activities, video analysis and lively discussions to implement a few beginning RDI objectives at home.
