There are so many different approaches to autism treatment available. I believe it is most important that parents and families dealing with autism choose treatment methods based on what they feel comfortable with and what they feel best suits their autistic family member's needs. I have witnessed the success of this program with people I know personally. I would highly recommend families dealing with autism consider this as a serious approach to treatment.

If you are unaware of Son-Rise you may like to look into it - it's all about engaging with your child in a loving and accepting manner and joining them in their world. The programme was developed by The Autism Treatment Centre of America in Sheffield, MA.View Thread
