The PARENT GUIDE goes into detail about mindful guiding basics such as zone of connection, scaffolding, one step ahead learning, communication, adding variations, spotlighting moments, saving memories, doing re-enactments and MUCH more! The Parent Guide is packed full of ideas to help you have success with your child.

I had a lot of fun creating the picture books that go along with the Parent Guide and my autistic son Jake, who went through the RDI program, created all of the illustrations.

The picture books are simple, straight forward and are repetitive in nature to help your child gain a sense of familiarity and competence.  The main goal is to actually do the engagement with your child.  The picture books are meant to act as a visual cue for your child prior to the "real" engagement.

During your engagement you will build relational memories, and feelings of competence within your child as they begin to build a sense of self and motivation to engage with you.

The books are not perfect and that's why I love them.  Guiding isn't perfect and it shouldn't be.  The books aren't perfect but they are what Dr. Gutstein, founder of RDI,  would say is "good enough" or a starting point to think about how you can begin to engage with your child.  Parents are the best guides!  More importantly, our brains are experience dependent organs that grow and develop during these parent -child mindguiding engagements. We, parents, can help develop our child’s brain!

Have fun with the books. Start small and build from your successes. Enjoy guiding your child!  And remember, If WE can do it, YOU can do it!
