“Through The New Frontiers Program, I learned and realized that it’s OK if she doesn’t want to play with me right when I try to join her…TRY AGAIN…PERSISTENCE! Autism is not a curse; it’s an opportunity to grow with your child! I believe The Son-Rise Program is a beautiful, wonderful, exciting program. The Son-Rise Program is an opportunity of a lifetime, not only for the child, but yourself as well. Thank you Son-Rise Program!”

“The Son-Rise Program has helped me connect with my stepson in a way that I didn’t think was possible in only a few months time. Now, a year later, we are a family instead of me being an extra shadow in the room. By using the Son-Rise principles, he is growing and getting more and more social abilities every week. And by using the Son-Rise principles, I am myself growing towards being the best parent I can imagine for both my children.”
