“When my parents created The Son-Rise Program for my younger brother Raun (who was diagnosed with Autism), I was just a child. I remember the love and the joyful sounds coming from the room where they worked with my brother. Wanting to be a teacher, I have been a home-health aide, a camp counselor for special needs children and a special education teacher. I yearned to be with children in the most loving way possible and in the way other parents were taught to help their children at the center founded by my parents in 1983.

In 1990 I came to train at the Autism Treatment Center of America. After I became a teacher and started a family this program became even more personal when my husband and I discovered that our daughter had autistic tendencies. Running a Son-Rise Program for her I experienced first hand the deep yearning of a mother who only wanted to reach her child. This program forever changed our family. It was the greatest experience of my life.

Today I work with families and children from all over the globe offering them a program that is effective, powerful and based on an attitude of love and acceptance. I do not see this as my job, but rather a blessing that is my life’s passion.”

Kelli Pallett, Son-Rise Mom, Canada
Child: Jordyn / Age: 7 / Diagnosis: ASD

“Truly one of the finest speakers I have ever heard. I love the mixture of humorous antidotes, practical experiences and knowledge that is used in lectures. I felt like every topic was covered in a way that can only come from the wisdom of one who understands &ndqsh; who has been there. The caring and loving way that she interacted with the group and particularly individuals was inspiring in every way. My favorite lesson: “She who loves the most wins.” I will carry that line with me the rest of my life. Thank you!”
