Q&A session 8
Topic: Diagnosed Hyperactive
with Autistic Tendencies
I have 2 children, Keith (10 years) and Trishken (8
years) who are both diagnosed hyperactive with autistic
tendencies, both of them do not talk but express their
needs by taking my hand to whatever they want, screams
or cries if they are not understood, both of them read
and count and they understand simple tasks or instructions.
We are living in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and
both my husband and I are also working here.
We would like to know how we can avail of your program,
if you have an outreach program for those who cannot
come to US for a lot of reasons (immigration as one).
We desperately need your help. I have read a lot about
your program and your institution from the internet.
Looking forward for your replies.

A: One of the great
things about this program is that you can do it from
your home! We will teach you how to do it with your
children and then you can do it by yourself! So, immigration
is hopefully not an issue for you then.
We have a two-week training program:
The first week is called the Son-Rise Program®
Start-Up, and it covers all the basics
of the Son-Rise Program so that you can go home and
set up a program for your boys.
In The Son-Rise Program® Start-Up
we teach you how to:
- set up a Son-Rise Playroom
- teach eye contact
- teach speech and social skills
- get a team of volunteers and how to train them
- and how to feel more comfortable with your child's
situation on a day to day basis.
This first week will carry you for 6-12 months.
The second week (which you would attend 6-12 months
after the Start-Up), is called Maximum Impact. It focuses
more on attitude, going further with training your volunteers,
being persistent, being a team leader, etc. This second
week is designed to carry you the rest of the way through
We present both the Start-Up and Maximum Impact in Europe
as well as in the United States.
so many questions this time… thank you for sending them
For those of you who didn't get you're questions answered
(or those who have questions now), you can post your
question on the Son-Rise Message Board and the entire
Son-Rise internet community can help you out!
I hope everyone has a great winter! Enjoy your children.
