Relationship Development InterventionConnecting Parents & Kids

A recently Certified RDI® (Relationship Development Intervention) Program Consultant, Shirley Ruch, continues to enhance her private speech pathology practice. RDI® teaches parents to be guides for the development of their child's communicative, social and cognitive skills. This improves the family functioning and the quality of life for each child when they become independent adults in the community. As the parents work in a naturalistic setting with their child, the learned skills generalize to real world competency. Ms. Ruch works as a consultant to the parents, helping them to establish their child's objectives so they can work together during daily activities at home and in the community. She has been a speech pathologist on eastern Long Island for 25 years and specializes in working with families on the autism spectrum. The office is located at 3333 Noyac Road in Sag Harbor and is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm and is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm and Saturday by appointment. 631-725-7166. www.shirleyruch.com. shirleyr@optonline.net.
