Choose Your Journey

Navigating autism can feel like a challenging, stormy day at sea. It can also be a journey of discovery and unexpected joys. It can mean loving more deeply, giving more freely, and living more fully for the moment.

The principles of Relationship Development Intervention (RDI®), used by JOURNEYS, empowers parents by giving them the tools to navigate autism in a way that honors their role as the primary guide in their child's life. By using a family-centered model for autism intervention, JOURNEYS will empower each family to navigate a journey that is uniquely their own.

Our programs are designed to:

  • Help parents feel more competent
  • Foster a deeper, more connected, relationship between parent and child
  • Enable children to become more flexible and better at coping with anxiety
  • Foster your child's desire for cognitive apprenticeship
  • Provide your child with a chance to focus on developmental skills that lay the foundation for dynamic thinking

Finding the right autism intervention is the most important decision you will make when your child is diagnosed with autism, developmental delay, PDD or asperger syndrome.
