- Child Facilitator Outreaches
"I came to the Autism Treatment Center of America in October 2008 where I took the position of Son-Rise Program Intensive Coordinator. Upon my arrival I fell in love with The Son-Rise Program and The Option Process. The modality of "bonding through acceptance" opened my eyes to a world of love and acceptance for my own son's ADHD and my overall attitude of wanting to live a happy life. In April 2009 I applied and was accepted into The Son-Rise Program Child Facilitator training. When I work with our special children I love them fully, expecting nothing from them while wanting the world for them. I cherish my time in the playroom as a facilitator and look forward to sharing my love with these children each day."
