AUTISM TREATMENT CENTER OF AMERICA
The Autism Treatment Center of AmericaTM, home of The Son-Rise Program®, has helped more than 25,000 families since 1983. Families that choose The Son-Rise Program discover an extraordinary unity and caring in a situation that normally leads to division and stress. Children treated by The Son-Rise Program go on to reintegrate into school, live full lives, and leave Autism behind. Our team of committed teachers combines over 100 years of “real life” experience working with children using The Son-Rise Program®. Over the last 25 years we have worked with more than 22,000 parents and professionals from around the world teaching them a system of treatment and education.
We have seen that:
Children with Autism are capable of learning, communicating, experiencing real joy and happiness and developing warm and satisfying
relationships with the people in their lives. Children with Autism, no matter how severe, can be helped to experience intimacy,
comfort, warmth and love. Children can learn to enjoy affection and to run toward a parent to be tickled, hugged or held. Children
can learn to look into another person's eyes and laugh with genuine, shared delight.
We do not put limits on the possibilities for your child.
We can help you to bring your child as far across the bridge from Autism to recovery as possible. For some, this means complete
recovery. For others, this means improvements in their child's development, human connection, communication, skill acquisition and
quality of life far beyond what most would have ever predicted
Your child may seem withdrawn and disconnected—but we believe he has the capacity to love, to laugh, to enjoy a cuddle or a tickle.
Your child may react aggressively or erratically—but we know that she can be helped to digest her environment so that smiles, hugs
and a real sense of caring engagement are the norms, not the exceptions.
Your child may be falling behind in areas of development such as language, self-care skills and social skills—but we believe he is
capable of learning – and of having that learning process be enjoyable rather than stressful – for you and for him.
Your child may be highly verbal with a high I.Q. while experiencing huge struggles socially—but we see a child who can learn to look
into another person's eyes with shared joy, laugh at jokes, find diverse interests and become truly successful at building meaningful
