Overview

As a boy, Raun Kaufman was diagnosed by multiple experts as severely autistic, with an IQ below 30, and destined to spend his life in an institution. Years later, Raun graduated with a degree in biomedical ethics from Brown University and has become a passionate and articulate autism expert and educator with no trace of his former condition.


Thanks to the Son-Rise Program, a revolutionary method created by his parents, Raun experienced a full recovery from autism. In Autism Breakthrough, Raun presents the ground-breaking principles behind the program that helped him and thousands of other families with special children. Parents and educators learn how to enable their children to create meaningful, caring relationships, vastly expand their communications, and to participate successfully in the world.

This book gives parents hope that until now was believed to be unattainable. It is beautifully written, and offers solid tools to help us reach our children. A MUST READ!!!

I bought Autism Breakthrough for our OT. She told me at my son Campbell's last appointment that, because she was reading Autism Breakthrough, she intentionally let Campbell guide their session, and she had a great response from him. When he started making funky clicking noises with his mouth in the middle of their session, instead of encouraging him to stop so they could continue, she completely switched gears, dropped her agenda, joined him in clicking and they became 'clocks' - which he loved! And while they were clocks, she got my completely writing-averse child to draw a clock, write in all the numbers, decorate the clock and write out some related comments! Anyway... she was delighted. To see the book's principles in action (knowing it's the opposite of what we've been taught to do for so many years - and, honestly, the opposite of what I might innately do anyway)... and then see the results so clearly, so tangibly and - in some cases - even so immediately... well, it's just kind of blowing my head right off my neck.

Autism is a broad spectrum. The minute you even considered the possibility of a uniform "recovery", you proved that you not only know nothing about us, but that you do't even have the physical capability to EVER know anything about us. Then you talk about curing it as if a cure were either possible or desired. You cashed in on something you made no attempt to understand. You sold me for a quick buck. And to think people mistake US for psychopaths. You're a monster.
