AUTISM: Full Recovery with The Son-Rise Programhttp://www.AutismTreatment.org/autism-recovery OR http://www.autismtreatment.org
An inspiring before and after video documenting the recovery of a boy with Autism using The Son-Rise Program® treatment, a cutting-edge approach for Autism treatment which flies in the face of the conventional ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) approach. The video features Simon, just one of the many children who made a full recovery from Autism using The Son-Rise Program. Simon tells his story from his Autism diagnosis to his hopes today as a gregarious 19 year-old college freshmen.
The Son-Rise Program has helped treat roughly 25,000 children and adults on the Autism spectrum worldwide in 78 countries. The Son-Rise Program was developed by parents Barry Neil Kaufman and Samahria Lyte Kaufman 35 years ago in response to the diagnosis of severe autism given to their son, Raun. Rather than follow the advice to institutionalize Raun, the Kaufmans developed and implemented a radically different treatment that embraced their childs repetitive behaviors (isms) like plate spinning and hand flapping. Rather than judging and suppressing Rauns behavior as ABA typically does, the Kaufmans joined and celebrated Rauns isms, thereby creating a connection that allowed him to emerge from his isolation. Raun Kaufman fully recovered from Autism, attended an Ivy League university, and today, is the Director of Global Education at the Autism Treatment Center of America, with speaking engagements on Autism worldwide. Barry Neil Kaufman is the author of Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues, made into the award-winning NBC-TV movie Son-Rise: A Miracle of Love.
Im thrilled to be able to share this video with the autism community. Like many of the children who have benefitted from our program and like my son Raun, Simon is an excellent example of a Son-Rise child exceeding any expectation that his doctors had for him and eventually even being off the autism spectrum, said Barry Neil Kaufman. Simons story is a testament to never giving up hope, never setting limits on any child's future just because they are diagnosed with Autism. As Simon's video story shows, this belief enabled Simon and his parents to choose an alternative to institutionalization that enabled him to leave his Autism behind to become a communicative, social young man. The sky is the limit for him.
Simons mother attributes her sons recovery from Autism to The Son-Rise Program. Simon was diagnosed by doctors who told me he had a less than 30 I.Q., would NEVER speak or recognize me again, and he would be severely autistic. Today, Simon is an authentic, loving, introspective person...truly a young Son-Rise Program child growing into his future. Years ago, I was told by a Son-Rise teacher that by growing up with the principles of this program, it would continue to be our guide to living. He had found that many of the children he had known worked with would grow up to lead extraordinary lives. We believed in that possibility for Simon, and he has already fulfilled that vision. My husband and I hope that by sharing this very personal video with the world during Autism Awareness Month, that other families will hear Simon's words and find their way to The Son-Rise Program as well.
The Son-Rise Program and the Kaufmans have been featured in over 2,000 articles and programs appearing in major media worldwide, including: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Self Magazine, Parenting Magazine, The Daily Telegraph, A.M. Chicago With Oprah Winfrey, The BBC (British Broadcasting Company) and Good Morning America. The Kaufman's work has been endorsed by Jimmy Carter, Dr. Carl Rogers, Deepak Chopra, Bernie Siegel, Norman Cousins, Lou Holtz, John Bradshaw, Bill Cosby, Dr. Wayne Dyer and many others. Barry Neil Kaufman is the author of Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues, made into the award-winning NBC-TV movie Son-Rise: A Miracle of Love. In total, the Kaufmans are the authors of 12 books. Through the Autism Treatment Center of America, thousands of parents and professionals from around the world have been trained and helped by this extraordinary method to reach children with Autism previously considered "unreachable".
