FSCD Appeal Panel finds in favour of funding Relationship Development Intervention (RDI tm), May, 2007

The following excerpts are direct quotations from the FSCD Appeal Panel Decision Document in Alberta, Canada.

Decision of the Family Support for Children with Disabilities Appeal Committee, May 29 and 30, 2007

Decision appealed: The Director's refusal to fund Relationship Development Intervention for [Children's Names].

Decision: The decision of the Director is rescinded.

Findings of Fact:

The FSCD Panel finds it to be a fact that the rehabilitative practices, strategies and approaches upon which Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) is based are established, reasonable, least intrusive and demonstrated to be effective.

The FSCD Panel finds that RDI is based on parent/child interaction and naturalistic teaching. These are the oldest methods of teaching known to man. To suggest that they are not established, reasonable, least intrusive and demonstrated to be effective would defy both logic and common sense.
