RDI with Reece
I thought I would share a segment from one of our recent RDI sessions. Our objective with Reece right now involves her feeling the difference between when we are engaged and when we are not engaged. Because of her recent regression, I have to keep a very close Zone of Connection (distance from each other). Also, all we are focusing on is the pattern of our interaction, and not what she is doing. She has started the same pattern of focusing on not being 'good enough' when compared to how I did something, so right now, as long as she is in the pattern with me, it doesn't matter if she colors exactly what I'm coloring. Also, we are completely non-verbal, because with her (and with Austin) as soon as we start including language, they both check out!
This is 5 months into RDI, and as you can see, it's far from perfect. I am completely uncomfortable with the slow pace and lack of language. And I know our consultant will come back with "Too Fast!" when she gives us feedback! LOL If yu would like to give me feedback, or if you'd like to ask questions, I welcome both!
I'm going to load a video with Austin next, while we're watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving! :)
