You will learn how to turn these once socially exclusive behaviors into interactive experiences which will help your child be more flexible and engaged.

#7) Get Your Child Talking Powerful and highly effective tools to encourage your child to start talking with Kate Wilde, Senior Son-Rise Program Teacher
Are you looking for ways to inspire your child who has limited speech or perhaps hasn’t spoken their first word yet? We invite you to watch a very special webcast designed for parents whose children are nonverbal, only speak up to ten words, or who only have speech-like sounds.
We understand how important it is for you to help your child learn to communicate, to express their needs and build strong relational connections. Learn effective, easy techniques to help your child embrace the power of verbal communication. When applying The Son-Rise Program principles of quick response, words spoken result in action, and celebration, we have witnessed the miracle of hundreds of children speak for the very first time, or increase their vocabularies exponentially. These principles can be applied immediately to begin making a difference in the life of your special child.
#8) A Son-Rise Mom Answers Your Questions
Join us for an idea packed interview with a Son-Rise Program Mom. Kristin Selby Gonzalez has been doing a Son-Rise Program with her son Jaxson for over two years. Raun K. Kaufman invites Kristin to share with all of you some outside-the-box ideas from her own experience that have made her Son-Rise Program successful. Kristin will talk strategies she has used for group meetings, getting volunteers, putting together the playroom, and overcoming challenges. Kristin, a former Teacher, is also a certified Body Ecologist, Certified Listening Program Provider, Educator for Enzymedica (enzyme manufacturer), has received extensive training in sensory integration including the Wilbarger Protocol, the Alerts Program, and has implemented multiple dietary and biomedical interventions (including chelation, anti-fungal treatment, enzyme therapy, probiotic therapy, and supplementation).
#9) Decision Making in the Playroom by Raun K. Kaufman
Whether you are new to The Son-Rise Program or you have recently begun your program, it is invaluable to have a way to decide what direction to take from moment to moment, as you work with your child. One of the many unique characteristics of The Son-Rise Program is its truly child-centered approach. To reach our children in a meaningful way (rather than simply training them to perform behaviors), we must follow our child’s lead and allow them to show us when to join them in their world and when to challenge them to join us in ours. Instead of enforcing some artificially predetermined schedule, we can use our child’s specific signals to guide us.
This can be relatively simple if we have a roadmap – and that’s what this webcast is designed to provide for you.
Learn the basics of The Son-Rise Program ABCs: the Assess → Bond → Challenge roadmap (complete with red lights and green lights)!. Find out the questions (in essence, micro-assessments) that are crucial to be asking throughout your sessions so that you can make clear decisions about what to do. You bring your love, caring, and enthusiasm, and we’ll show you how to translate that into tangible action to enable your child to bond with you and grow in new directions.

#10) Aggressive Behaviors by William Hogan, Senior Son-Rise Program Teacher
In this webcast William Hogan introduces you to solutions for the behaviors that you may be finding most challenging in your child – hitting, spitting, pinching, scratching, hair pulling and so on. He offers a totally new perspective on these behaviors along with very specific ways to take care of them. The Son-Rise Program viewpoint enables you to understand why your child displays these behaviors and, therefore, makes them so much easier to address. In our work with these magical, special children and their families over the last twenty-five years we have assisted many, many parents through these behaviors – not only helping to remove them altogether, but also teaching their children ways to interact that are warm, loving and highly interactive.

In this intimate look into 4 families’ lives after applying the tools they learned in The Son-Rise Program courses, they describe the incredible transformation of their children and families.
