Review

Limitless hope . . . his personal faith in the program, his warmth, and the targeted application of principles will encourage readers to try his methods. -Publishers Weekly. An innovative, alternative approach to creating a child-centered environment that directly empowers parents and caregivers. --Kirkus His voice is warm and fascinating, his experience is one that will bring confidence to families new to their diagnosis, or who may be struggling to find hope -Library Journal. Reading Autism Breakthrough brought chills to my body and tears of joy to my soul. This book must be read by every parent of a child with autism who wants a step-by-step plan to reach and transform their child. I was there in person when Raun K. Kaufman's miraculous story began. His full recovery from severe autism -- through The Son-Rise Program that his parents developed to reach him -- changed my life and the life of my daughter, who showed all the signs of early stage autism. Today she thrives because I knew exactly what to do: ignore all of the dire predictions and immerse her in precisely the principles and techniques described in Autism Breakthrough. I couldn't recommend this book more enthusiastically - not only for those who love a child or adult with challenges, but for all parents and professionals. This book turns the all-powerful principle of unconditional love into a practical blueprint that anyone can follow. -Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, #1 NYT bestselling author of The Power of Intention and thirty other books. I learned more about my daughter by reading this book than I have through all of the others I've read over the 11 years since her diagnosis. If you're a parent of a child with Autism, this book truly is a must-read. With case studies, step-by-step instructions and an accompanying website, it's an invaluable resource that may prompt you to rethink what - and how - your child can best learn and progress to meet their full potential.

Format: Paperback
Amazing book and method. The author is a fantastic advocate to the children, regardless of their difficulties or age, and also understands the challenges and exhaustion that the parents face. This book is full of precious advice, beautifully written and very motivating. I especially appreciated the chapter on diet/biomedical advice. His views on PECS and ABA can be controversial but he has a point, which is that Son-Rise wants to focus on making the children interact more and be more social because they want to, instead of focusing on teaching them academics first, and neglecting the core aspect of autism (which is a lack of interaction). The chapter on attitude is very good too, especially about parents relationship, as autism can be tough on even the strongest couples. The training is really pricey so I am happy that this book explained their principles well. I really hope this will help my little one.

This is essential reading for any parent or carer working with an autistic child or adult. At first I thought here we go another book claiming to be a miracle cure but as I got into the book and picked up on the SonRise program and started to apply the techniques being taught with my son I was astounded by how well it works. I would encourage you to study this book and make up your own mind. I don't believe there are any miracle cures for our sons and daughters. However the program detailed within this book focuses on how to first enter the world of our special children. Encourage them to trust and interact with us and then slowly build the language and social interaction skills which they will need to play a more active and fulfilling role in life. We are very much at the start of this journey but what I have experienced so far is truly incredible. Also the book comes with direct links to a website which provides a lot of free support and advice...

This is a book that will change your life. It's easy to read and will help all parents of autistic children (and those who work with special children) appreciate and realise the limitless potential all children have. As a mother of two great autistic boys, this book really helped me clarify my thinking on the Son Rise Program principles. If ABA just doesn't feel right then buy this book. It will give you a purpose and most importantly, hope.

I loved this book, the author wrote on my level, there were no endless lists of jargon and science involved, I'm going to try the techniques with my son as soon as we move house and can set up a playroom for him. Great book.

Amazing book! This should be a mandatory reading for every parent - even if you child is far from having ASD.
Raun truly knows what all the business about kids is.
Now: my son is not autistic; however, there was a suspicion posed by one of the doctors (after expressing ours concerns).
Therefore, when I heard that my child may be autistic I decided to learn about is as much as I could.
This book is amazing, it is a well of knowledge - now I understand why I struggle to get my child attention and focus, why he trows tantrums. I know what mistakes I am making and what I need to change in my expectations and behavior.
This book opened my eyes very wide - it made me realize that although I have two brilliant children, there is still a lot I need to learn to be a good parent to them.
Read this book - it will change your life. It will change your whole understanding of parenthood and raising your children

There are some good points made in this book such as not forcing autistic people to stop stimming or to use "quiet hands", and that joining an autistic person in their world will lead to far better results than forcing them into ours. There's also good advice on creating play environments to encourage the development of social skills. However, there's also a lot of misinformation that only got worse the further into the book you get.

Firstly is the subject of eye contact - where it is argued that without eye contact an autistic person will never truely bond with another person, and that getting eye contact is the first step in working with an autistic child. This is simply not true, and there are reports from autistic people that eye contact is painful and invasive. It is certainly not required to successfully bond.

Second is the idea that every autistic child can and will talk, and in following this belief the book advocates that you should remove any augmented means of communication such as PECS, sign language or AAC devices as it will make the child use verbal language. Not only is this premise incorrect (some autistic people will remain non-verbal their entire lives), but it also not backed up by research - a very short amount of time spent researching "will PECS/sign language inhibit/prevent speech" will reveal that studies suggest the exact opposite, that they increase speech.

This leads to my main problem with the book; that it criticises other strategies used in the field of Autism without seeming to fully understand them.
