Dr. Antonio's "Saving Autistic Lives" Mission Comes to Singapore
Thanks to a generous sponsor, a family foundation that wishes to remain anonymous, A Mother's Wish, has invited Dr. Antonio Rinaldi to come to Singapore to provide free workshops and subsidised private consultations (from June 23 to July 19).
OUR MISSION FOR SINGAPORE
Spread the awareness about Dr. Rinaldi's approach, ATDRA (translated from Italian as “Dynamic Relational Therapeutic Approach created in Water).
Challenge behavioural- and performance-oriented approaches that are focused on imposing our norms on autistic individuals at the expense of their well-being.
Build a network of ATDRA therapists that can continue to support families on their therapeutic path with ongoing systematic supervision from Dr. Antonio.
Subsidised Swimming Pool Therapy and Private Consultations
First session: Swimming Pool Therapy (50 min) + Consultation (1 hour 10 min) = SGD240
The accompanying consultation provides an explanation of ATDRA in action, as it applies to the autistic individual. Parents will also have the opportunity to pose additional questions about other issues.
Subsequent sessions: Swimming Pool Therapy (50 min) + Post-Session Discussion (10 min) = SGD120
Private Consultation for families (60 min onwards): SGD120/hour, pro-rated to actual time spent.
This session is meant for parents to learn how they can apply ATDRA in their daily lives with their children.
Classroom Consultations on behalf of families or schools (60 min onwards): SGD120/hour, pro-rated to actual time spent
If you are interested, Dr. Rinaldi is also available to conduct consultations at schools to address specific classroom situations at a subsidised rate of SGD120/hour.
Free Swimming Therapy and Private Consultations
We will be offering one free private consultation and swimming pool therapy session (2 hours) combination for 1 disadvantaged family for every 8 paying families.

It is Dr. Antonio's hope to generate a wave of awareness that will transform how we interact with autistic individuals so that we can be a positive guiding force for them in their challenging lives. When parents and professionals are filled with love and joy, they will see amazing change in the autistic individuals!
Autistic individuals do not need to be "fixed". They are waiting for us to genuinely reach out to them in the true spirit of empathetic understanding and guidance.
