Q&A session 8
Topic: Time in the Playroom
First we would like to thank you and the staff at the
Option Institute for all the help you have given us.
In January we went to the Start-Up Program in Holland
and every thing has changed since then. We have a son
Victor who is 3 years of age with the diagnosis Autism.
We have been running a Son-Rise program approximately
8 hours a day since February and we feel that we have
got our boy back. This summer we are going to England
for the maximum impact.
For how many hours at the time are you in the room?
Hope you could read my poor English?

A: Come on, your English
It is heartwarming to hear how Victor has responded
to the Program. So many families write us with similar
stories. I worked with a couple last week whose child,
who was non-verbal twelve months ago, is now speaking
in sentences consistently. They feel they can be with
their child in extraordinary ways, and he is with them
more and more. Wow. I love this program.
We don't have time to get to all the questions you wrote,
so you'll have to save some of them for next week in
London (Maximum Impact)!
In terms of how many hours in the room at a time, there
is no hard and fast rule. Our experience is that children
adapt very quickly to however long you have them in
For yourselves, the question is how long do you want
to spend in the playroom? If two hours is good for you,
great! If you would prefer to do one hour, no problem!
I know some parents who love doing six hours per day!
The most important thing is not to push yourself to
do more than you want to. We have seen that one hour
in the playroom that you want to do has more impact
than eight hours that you don't want to do. This is
how you can stay fresh and energized with your program.
So: enjoy, do as much as feels good to you, and don't
push yourself to do more than you really want to.
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.
