Autism, Marriage, & My Two Children: The Son-Rise Program Heals Us All
Vito’s son, Joseph, had very little eye contact and spoke only nouns in one word utterances. They had no emotional relationship. Vito didn’t even think Joseph knew who he was. The strain and the blame between Vito and his wife had driven them apart and they were close to divorce. Then they learned about The Son-Rise Program, a relationship-based Autism treatment program developed at the Autism Treatment Center of America. They attended The Son-Rise Program In-Person Start-Up and learned techniques and perspectives that helped them reach their son. Their daughter has since been diagnosed with Autism as well. Using The Son-Rise Program, both of their children are developing in language, eye contact, and social interaction. Vito describes a wonderful day that the family spent together – a day they never thought they would see. The Son-Rise Program has helped both of their children and helped them save their marriage as well.
