No Longer Rigid or Rote, Now Flexible & Spontaneous
Tyler was a high functioning child with Autism, but there was no emotional connection. His symptoms of Autism included spinning and an obsession with shapes, and his parents were told by doctors and ABA centers not to let him participate in these behaviors. His parents’ health and marriage were suffering. After hearing Raun K. Kaufman speak at an Autism conference, his parents came to the Autism Treatment Center of America where they attended The Son-Rise Program In-Person Start-Up and learned to run a Son-Rise Program for Tyler. They play with shapes a lot! Tyler has achieved the 10 goals his mother had for him – including kissing her spontaneously on her birthday.
