This playful video challenges the claims ABA proponents make about published research supporting their treatment method. Those who support ABA repeatedly site a study performed in 1987 with children preselected to succeed a study which has not been successfully reproduced since that time, as evidence for their case for ABA. This video calls into question the use of the 1987 study and offers the viewpoint that The Son-Rise Program, as a loving treatment based on acceptance of the child, is the most effective treatment for treating Autism.

INTERESTING FACT: The actor representing The Son-Rise Program in this video, also the script writer, is fully recovered from severe Autism himself.

The Autism Treatment Center of America™ is home to The Son-Rise Program®, an effective treatment for children and adults challenged by Autism Spectrum Disorders, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Asperger's Syndrome , and other developmental difficulties. Our team of committed teachers represents over 100 years of real life experience working with children using The Son-Rise Program. Over the last 35+ years, more than 25,000 parents and professionals from 78 countries have been trained in The Son-Rise Program techniques and methodology to help challenged children worldwide.

We believe that every child has unlimited potential. For some of The Son-Rise Program participants, this means their child returns to mainstream school or completely recovers from Autism. For other families, this means improvements in their child's development, social skills, communication, skill acquisition and quality of life far beyond what most would have ever predicted.

The Son-Rise Program® focuses on respect and deep caring as the most important factors impacting a child's motivation to learn, and from the beginning has made love and acceptance a meaningful part of every teaching process. In The Son-Rise Program, the children show us the way in to their world, and then we show them the way out to ours.

The Son-Rise Program® was created by Barry ("Bears") Neil Kaufman and Samahria Lyte Kaufman when their son, Raun, was diagnosed as severely and incurably autistic. Although advised to institutionalize him because of his "hopeless, lifelong condition," the Kaufmans instead designed an innovative home-based, child-centered program in an attempt to reach their little boy.

The Kaufmans' unique treatment, which featured joining Raun in his repetitive rocking and spinning, marked a complete departure from existing methods of Autism treatment. Raun was transformed from a mute, withdrawn child with an IQ of less than 30 into a highly verbal, socially interactive youngster with a near-genius IQ.
