High-Function Break-Out Sessions

Since 1983 the Autism Treatment Center of America has worked with children and young adults diagnosed with High Functioning Autism and Aspergers Syndrome. We have seen that The Son-Rise Program principles and techniques have a profound impact on these children. With this in mind, our Son-Rise Program Start-Up includes special ‘breakout’ sessions around language, goal setting and social skill development. If your child has received either of these diagnosis we will address:

These topics and more will be covered throughout our program, as well as during the ‘breakout’ sessions. Too often, children and young people with these specific diagnosis fall through the cracks as they are ‘too challenged’ to be seen as typical and ‘too advanced’ to receive the type of help/guidance they need. We want to help you and your child get the direction and answers you are looking for.

Video Testimonials:

Potty Trained in 3 Weeks

When her son was diagnosed 3 years ago, Nicoleta found the symptoms of autism that her son exhibited to be devastating. She spent years looking for autism support networks and autism treatment programs for her son and was about to give up when she discovered the book ‘Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues’ – a potential cure for autism. Listen to the amazing journey she took with her son, enabling him to become a happy, sociable 6 year old with 50 words and fully potty trained after just 3 months of The Son Rise Program. - 9 mins 54 secs

Anthony Got All His Language Back

Poppy felt helpless and sad when Anthony started showing symptoms of autism – she didn’t know what to do and felt as if she had failed him. Poppy heard about The Son-Rise Program through a friend who offered her the opportunity to join into Anthony’s world and love him unconditionally – an opportunity for autism recovery. She attended an autism training course called The Son Rise Program Start Up. Just 3 days after she returned home, her son’s eye contact and speech increased dramatically. Four days later, Anthony was able to tell Poppy that he loved her. Here is her story: - 7 mins 52 secs

"Mommy, I love you"

At 2 years old Lucas was diagnosed as severely Autistic. He showed symptoms of autism such as no eye contact and limited speech. His parents, Adam and Luzmary felt like their son’s progress was a dead end. With no connection at all with their son they felt like they were raising a robot.

Adam and Luzmary found The Son-Rise Program – a potential cure for autism and an alternative autism treatment program to the behavioral methods they had used before - to be simple and easy to use compared to other treatment for autism they had previously tried. The Son-Rise Program has helped Lucas to understand his feelings better. He’s become truly interested in other people and is now interested in conversation with others. Lucas can appreciate the people in his life so much more since beginning his Son-Rise Program. - 14 mins, 12 secs

Parent Reviews and Autism Journey Letters:

"By the age of 2, our son, began showing signs of Autism and became increasingly withdrawn. It became difficult to take him out as he would throw tantrums for no apparent reason and scream and scream. We could not effectively communicate to him what was safe or dangerous; he didn't seem to understand. Specialists then diagnosed our son with Autism, and gave us a hopeless prognosis. We discovered the Autism Treatment Center of America. The impact that their Son-Rise Program made on my family is profound. By the end of the first week, Liam had asked his first question, talked in his sleep for the first time and played purely for pleasure. Today, he has developed into such an enthusiastic communicator. He exhibits an imagination that often leaves us and strangers awed. He has progressed in all aspects to such an extent that he now attends his local mainstream primary school. The best indicator of his progress is that professionals visiting the school with the intention of examining Liam were unable to find the 'autistic child' and asked for assistance!"

"My 16-year-old son and family were in a crisis when we first heard about The Son-Rise Program. He displayed symptoms of Autism and was having numerous seizures, becoming aggressive at school and was very unhappy. Fourteen months later, with the benefit of the parent-training program taught at the Autism Treatment Center of America, Tyler is so happy. His conversation skills have developed incredibly, his seizures have been reduced from every 5 days to as long as 6 weeks apart! He gives spontaneous hugs, talks about his feelings, has developed a great imagination and is more comfortable in groups and new situations. We are so thankful to have found a way to help Tyler."

Autism Support Webinars:

If you want your child to want to interact with you and be really motivated to learn, then take a look at this webinar where Bryn Hogan, Executive Director of the Autism Treatment Center of America™, provides a brief introduction to The Son-Rise Program Start-Up. Bryn explains how coming to the three separate one-week Son-Rise Program training courses offered on our beautiful campus in the heart of the Berkshires and also in the UK can give you all the Autism resources that you need in order to be able to help your child through this loving and accepting alternative Autism treatment program.

Autism recovery is possible! Raun Kaufman, Director of Global Education of the Autism Treatment Center of America, introduces us to techniques and tools you can use immediately to help your child with challenges such as Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Asperger’s Syndrome. He explains that there is in fact a potential cure for Autism while giving positive Autism strategies in order to be able to best help your child from the starting point of truly accepting where they are right now.

Want to figure out if this is the best Autism solution for your child? This amazing three-part webinar compares and contrasts The Son-Rise Program with Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) as potential treatments for Autism for your child. Raun Kaufman, the Director of Global Education of the Autism Treatment Center of America, talks about how The Son-Rise Program uses very different principles from those of ABA in that it does not try and get children to conform to a world that they don’t understand, but truly accepts them where they are while still wanting more for them. He explains that Autism Spectrum Disorders are not behavioral disorders, but social and interactional disorders that are usually treated with a behavioral approach.

Show your child that you love them and that you want to be close to them through amazing Autism strategies shared in this webinar. You will see an introduction to the new video Autism Solution: Getting Started with The Son-Rise Program. You'll meet Barry Neil Kaufman and Samahria Lyte Kaufman, the originators of The Son-Rise Program. You'll also meet Raun Kaufman, the original Son-Rise Program child, now fully recovered from Autism and CEO of the Autism Treatment Center of America who shares how Autism recovery is possible.
