The Autism Treatment Center of America Announces 2nd Edition of The Son-Rise Program Developmental Model for Curing Autism

Sheffield, Mass. – November 19 – The Autism Treatment Center of America™ (ATCA) continues to offer groundbreaking advances in curing autism. The ATCA has announced the 2nd Edition of The Son-Rise Program® Developmental Model.

The Son-Rise Program for autism treatment and education is the only program that:

The Son-Rise Program Developmental Model is based on the understanding that the ability to socialize, create and sustain substantial interactive relationships is the fundamental challenge for people on the autistic spectrum. It is important to focus on all areas of a child’s development, but the first and foremost skill must be social development, the ability to socially interact. By focusing on this area, parents and caregivers can create the greatest possibility for change.

The 2nd Edition of The Son-Rise Developmental Model offers more detail about the specific social skills required to develop a Son-Rise Program curriculum. It clearly explains the stages of social development, including easily understandable Social Developmental Charts, and how to create a curriculum that focuses on the skills most appropriate for a child’s next step in social development.

Raun K. Kaufman, CEO of the ATCA and himself fully cured through The Son-Rise Program, said, “The Son-Rise Program Developmental Model will make a profound difference in your work with your child, or the child in your life.”
