The Maximum Impact Program Reviewed

What Some Say About Our Autism Treatment Program

“Maximum Impact filled me with “turbo fuel” to go home and be a true Force of Nature!! I had the most amazing revelations about myself – which will in turn help my son. I’ve been running my program for over 3 years, it’s such a “piece of the puzzle” I’ve been missing…so important, so different than Start-Up for sure, surprisingly even the intensive I went to 11 months ago!! I see now why there are different programs for different purposes, even if the destination is the same!!”

Denise Skinner, Nurse & Lactation Consultant, WA Child’s Name: Nathan / Age: 8 / Diagnosis: Autism

“I would recommend Maximum Impact for parents whose batteries need to be recharged. You leave reenergized and have the tools with your attitude that will allow you to reach for the stars with your special child.”

Irini Katsogiannis, Homemaker & Nurturer, Australia Child’s Name: Evan / Age: 5 / Diagnosis: Autism & ASD

“Having begun our Son-Rise Program full throttle after Start-Up, after a year we began to feel the batteries running low and looking for direction. We’ve found Maximum Impact held the mirror to our faces and answered all of our questions in the clearest, possible way.”

Ari Katsogiannis, Risk Advisor, Australia Child’s Name: Evan / Age: 5 / Diagnosis: ASD & Autism

“Maximum Impact turns up the flame of the Son-Rise Program giving you the attitude from within to use the Son-Rise tools to make the most impact on not only your child’s life, but on every life you touch – starting with your own.”

Shawn K. Carrie, Director Of Accounting, TX Child’s Name: Clint / Age: 5 / Diagnosis: PDD & NOS

“The Maximum Impact program was an out of this world experience for me! Being a person who embraces change, this is the next step on my ladder of who I want to be.”

Beverly Zabawa, Homemaker, MI Child’s Name: Zachary / Age: 8 / Diagnosis: Autism

“You think that it is all about your child and what you can do to change and to help them. Take Maximum Impact and you will find that it is really about changing yourself. Like I was told once, put the oxygen mask on yourself first and then on your kids. Give Maximum Impact and the Option Process an opportunity to breath new life into you and your program and ultimately your child.”

Renee Englund, Mom, IN Children’s Names: Corinne & Carson (twins) / Ages: 6 / Diagnosis: Autism, PDD & ASD

“Maximum Impact allowed me to examine who I am and my perception of the world around me. Contrary to what I thought, the Son-Rise Program and Maximum Impact are not in contradiction to my views as a physician, but rather it is the missing tool, the missing jigsaw puzzle that will make my knowledge more meaningful for my son and everyone else in my life.”

Jude Verzosa, Physician, WA Child’s Name: Zachary / Age: 6 / Diagnosis: Autism

“First, I love the Son-Rise Program and all the hope it has given to our family. Because of the Son-Rise Program, for the first time we are not alone. We have a loving and understanding community of moms, dads, children, teachers, child facilitators coming home with us (in spirit) back to the playroom. Specifically, Maximum Impact has given me the skills to run our Son-Rise Program as a force of nature-with purpose, conviction, and passion to run group meetings. I am now able to give feedback with love, and to be accepting and totally present. I’m going home to have the best Son-Rise Program because I can and because I choose to!”

JoAnn Eccher, Mom, MA Child’s Name: Jacob Antonio Bazzy / Age: 9 / Diagnosis: Autism

“I was thinking that coming to Maximum Impact wasn’t necessary, that I’d just skip it and come to New Frontiers instead. I have done many programs here at the Autism Treatment Center of America, including becoming a mentor, and this week for me was exquisite. The depth at which I created love and appreciation for myself, for my co-participants, the teachers and for my special children is so huge. I have the sense that children with autism and their parents and families are the ones who will lead to the biggest and most profound changes on the planet. The love, tenderness, common purpose, passion, and commitment was so present in this program, unlike any others I’ve experienced here. A beautiful thank you to everyone here!”
