Autism Recovery Using The Son-Rise Program®: Brandon, Recovering From Autism

Here is something worth looking into. The Son-Rise program enabled this family to help their son out of the grips of autism.

www.autismtreatment.org – The Autism Treatment Center of America™, founded in 1974 by Samahria Lyte Kaufman and Barry Neil Kaufman, teaches parents a unique autism treatment called The Son-Rise Program®. The Son-Rise Program is a loving, accepting, home based approach that parents use to connect with their children and help them emerge from autism and other developmental disorders. It was awarded the Best Autism Therapy at the AutismOne National Conference. Brandon had been diagnosed with autism when he was two years old and the doctors said that there was nothing they could do. But they didn’t give up. They flew from Northern Ireland to Massachusetts to attend the Son-Rise Program® Start-Up Training Course at the Autism Treatment Center of America™. They have been running a Son-Rise Program® in their home, playing and working with Brandon. Now, despite the doctors’ predictions, Brandon is recovering from autism! Once he didn’t speak. He didn’t respond to his name. He spent hours watching the same video over and over, He had no interaction with his parents or anyone else. Now Brandon is in mainstream school. He has conversations, makes jokes and plays with his friends. He is a happy and social young boy. The Son-Rise Program®can change your child’s future . . . • You are your child’s best guide and resource • You join your child in their world rather than forcing them to conform to a world they don’t understand • Your child’s own motivation ignites their interest to join

How to find a local doctor who specializes in autism/aspergers treatment with vitamins and minerals?

I want to try B12 shots but I’m afraid to go to a regular psychiatrist office because they might not know anything about autism/aspergers and they typically only know how to write prescriptions for xanax and antidepressants.
Yes they can help dummy.

How can I apply for an autism grant from the government?

I have Aspergers and have a very troubled life situation and I think an autism grant would help enormously. My workers don’t know about government grants and cry scam at every app company site they look at. How do I go about applying. These grants are listedas for families with an autistic child, but what about an an individual adult with a form of autism (Aspergers in my case) applying for himself?

How would you go about getting an Autism diagnosis for a young adult?

My brother showed many signs of Autism as a child and my mother neglected us so he never got diagnosed. The school labeled him ADHD but now that I’m an adult I see that his behavior was not ADHD at all. I am pretty convinced he has either Autism or Aspergers. (sp?) This is the first opportunity we’ve had to get him some answers because our biological mother is finally out of the picture. He is 19. If anyone has any help that would be great!
