I am an RDI® Consultant with a passion in supporting families and professionals understand autism and how they can use a developmental approach to improve quality of life.

As an autism consultant and trainer, Elisa Ferriggi is dedicated to empowering parents and professionals to feel competent in guiding children with autism to improve quality of life. By addressing the core features of autism and unlocking potential, children are able to develop milestones required to connect with others and establish true relationships.

Since June 2003, Elisa Ferriggi has been working with autistic children and their families.  She understands the complex demands made on parents in helping their children and developing their relationship and the emotional journey many are going through. Her enthusiasm and commitment shine through in helping families be the best they can be. She admires the persistence of parents in helping their children with the challenges they face.

As well as delivering unique individual support programmes to families, she has created, designed and delivered multiple presentations and workshops to both parents and professionals.

It's hard to explain but Elisa just "gets it" and is incredibly supportive and non-judgmental. Her knowledge of autism, psychology and general mindfulness is really helpful. RDI® in general is just so intuitive and right, I love the approach and I love working with Elisa.
