I had to read this book for another course. It was very informative and insightful involving the topic of Autism. It provided concrete examples of what parents and teachers can do to help eliminate some of the issues when dealing with Autism. I would definitely recommend this book for a parent in the future if necessary. ( )

While I have never taught any autistic children, nor am I personally involved with any, I have always been interested and amazed by these little geniuses who are “brain blessed” that sadly struggle in the “normal world”(5). With the love and guidance and therapy from amazing people, the children will hopefully one day have extraordinary experiences that are not hindered by over sensory/over processed stimulation. Kaufman offers only his own story, but stories from various children, such as Michelle and Reggie, that really opened my eyes to the similarities, yet differences in worlds. Through his inspirational advice, tips, and encouraging words, Kaufman presents a positive yet realistic text for not just parents of autistic children, but also family members and teachers. ( )

Autism Breakthrough is an absolute must read!!!!

In this book you discover the The Son-Rise Program® and how it can change you child's life. The book has he easy to understand explanations and applications. He also writes about some life changing experiences that many have achieved. One aspect I was impressed with this book is Raun's explanation of why leaning the social interaction skills takes a precedent over the math and other of the basic skills taught in to children this period of their life. This program is parent led so parents are empowered to act as facilitators, trainers and managers for their home-based programs. This is a book I recommend for parents, extended family, teachers, para's and therapists. ( )

"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 spokesperson for the autism community. So what happened? Thanks to Son-Rise, an incredible program his parents created, Raun experienced a full recovery from autism. In Autism Breakthrough, Kaufman presents the ground-breaking principles behind the program that helped him, and so many other families with special children. Kaufman explains that autism is frequently misunderstood as a behavioral disorder when in fact it is a social relational disorder. He explains what it feels like to be autistic, and shows how and why the Son-Rise program, which focuses on the parent-child connection, works. And he offers clear, practical strategies for working with children that readers can apply immediately--in some cases, parents see a change in their children in as little as one day. Autism Breakthrough makes available for the first time in book form the principles and practical applications of the Son-Rise program, presented by someone who not only teaches the program, but has experienced the joy of it in his own life"--… (more)
