Hi fellow son-risers,
My wife and I completed Start-Up in Dec09 and are blown away with the progress we have made in only a few months with my wife and I simply playing for 1-2hours a day. Our son Sid is 2.5years old and is now happier, more playful (even tickling his 4year old brother Ned sometimes..who can't believe his luck..) , saying and trying so many words and giving us gorgeous eye contact even outside of the playroom. Keeping him at home where he is most comfortable and least distracted has made a huge difference as well! Not to mention our attitudinal change!! We feel we are so blessed to have each other and to have had the opportunity to learn all the Son-Rise tools & techniques and are now ready to turn our program full-time. We are putting the final touches to our playroom and are currently advertising for volunteers.
We would love for a live-in facilitator to join us on our beautiful journey, helping create a wonderful and enthusiastic team for Sid. To be involved and gain personal insights (from a family perspective) in all facets of starting / running a successful home-based Son-Rise program. We are a warm, friendly, health-conscious family who live and breathe Son-Rise / autism and very keen to learn more as we grow with Sid and our team. This would be a great opportunity to practise your feedback on us!
We would be looking for a 3 month commitment or longer if you wish and to work with Sid approx. 3 hours a day (negotiable of course). We are located on Sydney's Northern Beaches, on acreage (peaceful & quiet), only 5 mins from the beach and 30mins from the centre of Sydney. Full board, private bedroom / bathroom and return Airline travel provided.
Feel free to PM me, or I am happy to reply to posts in this thread.
Thank you very much for your time, and I look forward to any enquiries.
Kind regards, Jason & Claudia
