Adrianne Kmet, BScN (Hon.), RN
Certified RDI™ Program Consultant
Owner | Discover Autism
As a mother of two spirited children, one of whom is Autistic, I understand the complexities of raising a child with extra needs in today’s world. The unique experience of being a special needs parent has given both my husband and myself greater compassion and understanding and created a deeper connection between ourselves and our children. Using strategies from Relationship Development Intervention (RDI™) we have become more effective guides to help our children develop dynamic thinking and effective life skills. Each day we strive to use everyday moments as learning opportunities to prepare our children for our complex and dynamic world. Seeing how beneficial this has been for our family has inspired me to become a Professional Family Consultant in order to bring this knowledge to others. Our children can make enormous leaps in development with the right interventions. I’ve had the honor of working as a Registered Nurse on Maternity hospital units and in the Public Health sector in both rural and urban First Nations communities. I love working with families and children to help positively alter the shape of their future.
