CONSULTANTS ARE KEY

Consultants are the key to the RDI program in families. They work as coaches for parents as follows:

  • Provide education on development issues

  • Create a systematic plan to implement goals and objectives so that parents learn to be guides for their children

  • Guide parents to promote their child's mental growth during the daily routine

  • They guide parents to learn to observe and analyze themselves, their children and the state of the process of "guiding"

  • Teaching parents when to insert cognitive challenges in activities

  • Monitor progress
