"Claudia has been and continues to be instrumental in assisting me in constructing a comprehensive world-renowned program for Autism Treatment, an accompanying RDI Consultant Training Program operating in over 30 countries and an online training and support platform, currently serving thousands of families with ASD children. She has participated in both a program development, research and training capacity.
For example, Claudia has had a central role in training over 200 professional consultants from over 30 countries and providing ongoing continuing education as the program continues to evolve. Finally, Claudia has personally worked as an RDI Consultant, providing education, counseling and evaluation to many families from diverse cultures. Her poise, professionalism and clinical acumen places her at the top 5% of all clinicians I have had the privilege of working with and training over the span of my 30 years as a Clinical Psychologist.
I highly recommend Claudia without any reservations."

Chief Executive Officer, RDIconnect
"My personal knowledge of Claudia extends over the past 20 years, nine as an employee in our organization. RDIconnect has developed a methodology for restoring the guiding relationship for parents of children who have autism. This includes both direct work with families and training of professionals interested in our approach. Claudia was involved in all aspects of this program, consultation with parents, creation of an online system and world-wide training of professionals and parents. In this regard, we considered Claudia’s expertise of such value that she represented us and conducted training in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia.
Claudia has a quick mind and a rare gift of compassionate insight when dealing with families, traumatized by the diagnosis and presence of autism in their families. Her assessments and planning have always been spot-on. Each family with whom she worked and each professional that she trained moved forward empowered, self-sufficient and independent. Claudia pioneered Relationship Development Intervention alongside us and remains integral to the work as we continue to develop it."
