Q&A session 5 with the Director of The
Son-Rise Program®, Bryn N. Hogan.
Topic: The Son-Rise Program®
and Down Syndrome
I read about you from our local newspaper...a lady who
attended your Son-Rise Program®
wrote about her experience with the program. Does your
program cover Down Syndrome?
Thanks...hope to hear from you soon..
A: Dear Helen,
Thank you for your question. Many parents will ask us
questions such as: Do you help children with Cerebral
Palsy? ADHD? Learning delays? etc. As you may know,
The Son-Rise Program®
is best known for its work with children with Autism,
PDD and Autism Spectrum Disorders, but this does not
mean that only children who have received these diagnoses
come here. This is simply the area that has become the
most well known, regarding our work with children with
Actually, almost every time we have a Son-Rise
Program® Start-Up here on property
(these take place four times per year on site, and numerous
times off-site at other location in the U.S. and Europe)
we have parents and professionals who come representing
children, or adults with varying diagnoses. For example,
in February a woman came because she was looking to
help a person she worked with: a 45 year old woman who
had brain injury due to the removal of cancerous brain
tumors in her brain. We have had parents and professionals
who are looking to help children and adults with Down
Syndrome, as well as countless other diagnoses.
If you are wondering if we can be of help to your child,
please don't hesitate to contact us and arrange a free
consultation with one of our Program Coordinators who
can answer your questions and hopefully help you to
make the best decision for your family.
We hope to hear from you.
Bryn N. Hogan
