How it happens
The consultant meets with parents regularly to develop and customise their program. Between meetings, parents use video to record specific interactions with their child and, with their consultant’s support, learn how to analyse their own role in the guiding relationship. Video review is documented as a very effective tool for changing how we parent. Thus the parents learn how to continuously improve their interactions with their child to provide ‘just right’ challenges, which facilitate his dynamic development. Over time, need for consultation reduces and RDI becomes a way of life, and the consultant is no longer needed. Parents have access to a community of consultants and other families and a wealth of webinars, articles, videos and blogs to support their journey, as well as their consultant to guide them.
