Bonnie Daudlin - M.A., Registered Speech-Language Pathologist, Certified by Speech Audiology Canada (SAC), Behavioural Consultant Category A Registered Autism Service Providers

Bonnie has over thirty years of experience working with children in diverse settings. Work settings have included the Williams Lake Child Development Centre, Queen Alexandra Hospital's feeding team and early intervention team and BC Centre for Ability's early intervention team, hearing impairment team in addition to her role of clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia's faculty of Medicine, School of Audiology and Speech Sciences.

Her focus and experience with the paediatric population diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), significant communication disorders and eating difficulties, supported Bonnie's passion in the field to grow. She became eager to understand how young children with developmental difficulties communicate and build relationships within their families and in community settings. This led Bonnie to begin studies through The Neufeld Institute in the spring of 2015. Bonnie completed the Early Start Denver Model introduction course in the spring of 2016 then completed the Advanced Training Workshop in the fall of 2016. The combination of attachment theory with developmentally appropriate autism theory has increased positive outcomes for children and families.

In September 2013, Bonnie began work as a Behaviour Consultant with Reference and Regulate For Autism. The experience supported her passion in the work and she is thankful to each family who has welcomed her into their home. She is comtinually humbled by each experience.

As of October 2019, Bonnie is excited to offer Heartfelt Autism Services to families and their children.

Team Supervisor
Rim Powar - B.A., Autism Interventionist

Rim graduated from Kwantlen Polytechnic University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. Behaviour and mental processes, particularly in lower functioning children fascinated her, so she decided to pursue a career in providing therapy to children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Furthermore, she volunteered at Big Sisters Foundation and BC Children’s Hospital to support children in need.

Developing strong emotional connections with the families and their children has been extremely rewarding and fulfilling for Rim. The opportunity to acquire skills in working with multidisciplinary teams has increased her passion for working with children with ASD.

Rim is dedicated to putting the child first to ensure that the type of intervention provided supports positive, attachment-based intervention through a play-based developmental model. The goal is to build true meaningful relationships in all aspects for the child within the family.
