AUTISM SUPPORT FOR PARENTS
"We have really enjoyed working with Elisa over the past year. Our knowledge has increased and we now have lots more tools to guide our child. It has been exciting and continues to be as we watch our child's development and being able to experience our child making discoveries and grow each day. Being able to mindfully provide the experience opportunities for this to happen is empowering and getting to see it move over from the parent child relationship into school and peer relationships is beautiful." ~ Lynnette and Graham
Parents are the best resource that a child can have and building this relationship is vital for your child’s future relationships and happiness.
When you have a child who is autistic, or who is neuro-diverse in any way, it can be extremely challenging for you as a parent. You may find that the usual parenting methods (even ones that worked perfectly with your other children) are not getting the outcome you would expect. This can knock your confidence and self-esteem, when actually, what you need is someone to help you to learn to use naturally nurturing methods, designed specifically to help autistic children to grow and to develop healthy relationships.
I’ve worked with families since 2003, providing them with the tools needed to guide and support their autistic child. Every child and every family are unique, which is why I have developed a range of programmes, workshops and resources to support families on their journey.
Designed for parents
RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPMENT INTERVENTION (RD)
RDI individual programmes are a whole family approach for autism and other developmental differences. Instead of focusing on symptoms, RDI works to activate the growth-seeking drive essential to remediating the universal features associated with the autism spectrum.
RDI® programmes 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.
This package of support is designed to give you tailored support just when you need it for particular issues or challenges you want resolved and guidance you are looking for. This can be considered as short term support as and when required. For some people one package is enough to get the support they need but if you need more you can renew the support package again for best value or add on sessions as you wish.
Improve the sleep situation in your household
If your child is having sleep difficulties and it is affecting them and the rest of the household, having a thorough sleep assessment and tailored programme can help everyone get a better night’s sleep and result in a happier more functioning family.
CORE Steps: The Guide to become Confident, create Opportunities, build Relationships and enhance Engagement is a 12 week transformation opportunity to get you from feeling overwhelmed to empowered to improve your connection with your child. Enrolment is now closed for CORE Steps, please join the waiting list to register your interest for the next one.
