Hello and thank you for visiting my page!
I'm Adrianne Kmet, a Certified RDI Consultant and Registered Nurse. I have been blessed with two amazing children, one of whom is Autistic. I live in beautiful Maple Ridge, BC with my family.
My journey into motherhood and learning about Autism has sparked immense personal and professional growth and a deeper appreciation for life, love and relationships. I understand the complexities of raising a child with special needs and being a full-time care provider in the midst of our quickly changing world. I know what it’s like for people to say there is nothing atypical when your intuition is screaming that something isn’t right. Deep down you know it’s not supposed to be this hard. It may feel like the trail markers on this path can be almost impossible to find but there is hope. Step by step and alongside one another we can learn, grow and develop and as we do this we learn how to guide our children so they, in turn, can learn, grow and develop and have meaningful experiences and relationships within a beautiful world.
I bring a unique background and perspective to my work as a Certified RDI™ Consultant. I have practiced as a Registered Nurse in diverse practice settings for almost ten years. I graduated from the British Columbia Institute of Technology with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing with Honours. I have also completed my RDI™Certification, Perinatal Nursing Speciality Certificate, the Indigenous Cultural Competency Training Program as well as other Certificates in different areas of interest. I have worked and run programs in rural and urban communities in Public Health, Community Health and Maternity Nursing. My professional background and holistic family approach to care combined with my experience providing individualized teaching make RDI™ a natural fit for me.
Working with children and families in a meaningful way that promotes happiness and a better quality of life is my passion. If you feel that we might be a good fit, feel free to connect with me by phone, message or email.
Warmest wishes, Adrianne, RDI Mom
