ReConnect Autism Consultancy and Training delivers autism consultancy and training services to parents of children on the autism spectrum that result in improved quality of life.  Based in Wicklow and servicing families nationwide, ReConnect Autism brings the Relationship Development Intervention (RDI) programme to Ireland for the first time.  RDI is a parent-education programme based on the latest research on the brain, developmental psychology and autism that focuses on promoting and enhancing the child’s social and emotional understanding.  In a study in Texas, after 2.5 years on the RDI programme, 15% of children were still in special education classes, compared with 90% before going on the programme.

hntrm5ku www.irishprematurebabies.comWelcome to the website of Irish Premature Babies. We are a voluntary organisation set up in Ireland by parents who have all had premature baby. We have come together as a group because we believe there is a need to support parents through the rollercoaster journey that ensues when your baby is born prematurely.  Ireland has very little that represents or promotes the welfare of the parent of preterm babies, but we hope to change this with the formation of Irish Premature Babies.
