Diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, Kelly’s son, Zane, was verbal but his ability to speak was limited to short comments or questions to get what he wanted. In addition to a lack of interaction – a common symptom of autism - he would repetitiously and exclusively draw and build with his toys.
Kelly found out about the Son-Rise Program through an autism support
group and after only six months of the autism treatment program, Zane
has changed dramatically. Through autism strategies taught at the
Son-Rise Program Start Up which both Kelly and her husband attended, he
has nearly ceased his competitive and exclusive behavior and his
interactions with others are no longer based on immediate need. He will
now enthusiastically use language to interact with others.
