BEST AUTISM THERAPY
The AutismOne National Conference is the most comprehensive Autism conference in the world. The annual 5-day event held in Chicago, Illinois educates parents and professionals about the most up-to-date research and interventions for Autism Spectrum Disorders presented by leading experts. Workshops, roundtables, classes and special events provide a powerful experience for parents and professionals to come together as one Autism community.
The 2011 conference, Autism Recovery on a Budget: Empowering Parents, featured a joint keynote address by Jenny McCarthy and Byron Katie. With the help of sponsors, parents were given the opportunity to attend for free, including childcare which was offered by the Autism Treatment Center of America!
During the AutismOne Awards Gala, The Son-Rise Program was recognized with multiple nominations and wins from the Autism community including Best Autism Therapy. The voting included input from over 4,000 Autism professionals and parents from the United States and abroad.
BEST AUTISM PRESENTER
Raun K. Kaufman, Director of Global Education and Senior Son-Rise Program Teacher and Trainer, presented Autism Revolution: Breakthrough Strategies for Parents. Raun’s presentation provided concrete, innovative strategies for parents to implement immediately. He recounted his own story of recovery from Autism and detailed simple techniques from The Son-Rise Program, which include being able to move beyond stimming (without you stopping or discouraging your child’s behavior), learn new skills (without you having to push or pressure), and most especially, to form meaningful, caring relationships with you & others.
