The Son-Rise Program Awarded Best Autism Therapy By the AutismOne National Conference

At the conference Raun K. Kaufman, Director of Global Education at the Autism Treatment Center of America, won Best Presenter, and The Son-Rise Program Child Facilitators and Teachers were overjoyed by the comments made by parents recognizing changes in their children after spending time using The Son-Rise Program. Parents reported children being calmer, smiling more, sleeping better, talking more and showing affection for the first time.
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.

Now more Moms and Dads will hear about The Son-Rise Program as a highly powerful and effective method to reach and help their children with Autism. The recognition of the importance of The Son-Rise Program’s unique focus on joining children in their world and bonding through parental love is not only profoundly meaningful but creates the possibility for helping our children create nurturing relationships and build wonderful lives. We not only bring hope and optimism to the families we teach, we give them the method and the tools to transform their children’s lives.
Barry Neil Kaufman
Co-Founder of The Son-Rise Program
We had one parent who said her daughter had been with the same babysitter for two years and cried every day for most of the day. However, she only cried briefly during her transition to The Son-Rise Program childcare room. The rest of the day she playfully popped bubbles and laughed from her belly as she received loving tickles. Her parents said she appeared calmer and happier. All this because we loved her, laughed with her, accepted her, and cheered for her all day long.
Son-Rise Program Child Facilitator
Just two months after completing The Son-Rise Program Start-Up our son began to speak. His eye contact increased and he even began to interact with kids his own age. After 9.5 months, we took him to be re-diagnosed… He was diagnosed as no longer on the Autism Spectrum. We did it! We did it! We did it! The Son-Rise Program Start-Up proved itself. We have to thank many people, like the Kaufman family that courageously created The Son-Rise Program, and the people who gave their hearts in helping our son.

In just five days of training on The Son-Rise Program techniques I have seen changes in Jack which I thought would take months to accomplish. His speech has dramatically improved, he no longer shouts at us, and is a lot calmer and happier. In addition it has been immensely personally rewarding for me. Wonderful! I cannot thank you enough.
