Kate - Autism Consultation Teacher

Kate C. Wilde

Director of The Son‑Rise Program

Personal Statement: “I have spent my whole working life playing with children and helping families using The Son-Rise Program. My journey to the Autism Treatment Center of America began when I just 13 years old. When I watched the TV movie, Son-Rise: A Miracle of Love. This movie is the real-life story of The Founders of The Autism Treatment Center of America and how they recovered their severely autistic son from Autism. It was that movie that inspired me to want to work with children on the autism spectrum. It is now more than 35 years later, and my passion for our children and the Son-Rise Program continues to grow. I have had the amazing honor to have worked with well over 1,500 children of different ages and diagnosis. I have had the privilege of helping families from all over the world, who continue to amaze me with their love and dedication for their beautiful children. I look forward to meeting you and helping you and your family thrive.”

Fun facts: Kate has an identical twin sister. She is British and loves to dance argentine tango.

Kate was born to do this. She is a patient listener, and I defy anyone not to be inspired by her! Kate has facilitated immeasurable change in our family.

Suzanne - Autism Consultation Teacher

Suzanne Pruss

Son-Rise Program Teacher

Personal Statement: “I first arrived at The Autism Treatment Center of America in 1992 and fell in love with the teachings and techniques of the Son-Rise Program. I was enamored with how respectful, loving, fun and creative I could be in order to connect with a person on the autistic spectrum. I had intended to stay and volunteer for 2 months but, instead, found my calling and have been here ever since. It has been my biggest joy to have worked one-on-one with over 1200 children on the autistic spectrum at the Autism Treatment Center. To be able to assist parents and their team members to learn this beautiful way to connect, inspire and support children on the spectrum to grow to their fullest potential is a true blessing.”

Fun facts: Suzanne grew up in Australia and attended a one-room primary school, ‘Little House on the Prairie’-style. She loves nature, animals, painting and comedy. She has traveled the world extensively, was born in Vietnam and has ‘family’ world-wide.

Becky Damgaard

Suzanne was able to address any aspect of our Son-Rise Program that we needed guidance on. It was clear that she was drawing on many years’ experience to expertly guide us through and to the end of our program. I could not recommend her highly enough to anyone running a Son-Rise Program.
