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 autism expert and educator with no trace of his former condition. Thanks to the Son-Rise Program, a revolutionary method created by his parents, Raun experienced a full recovery from autism. In Autism Breakthrough, Raun presents the ground-breaking principles behind the program that helped him and thousands of other families with special children. Parents and educators learn how to enable their children to create meaningful, caring relationships, vastly expand their communications, and to participate successfully in the world.

"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)
Very interesting strategies.. Explained with simple easy to understand examples. Totally convinced that I need to try them out. Not sure how can working parents make it work though.. Will be calling the institution
This is book has a large breath of knowledge! The ideas stated here have changed my life and how I think about, talk about, and teach people with ASD!
Raun's narration is lively and easy to listen to. I found myself chuckling and engaged as he would use inflection or give examples!
Highly recommend to anyone that wants to expand their beliefs and behaviors toward those living with ASD!
Thank you For writing this book! I look forward to reading the books you suggested.
Loved this, just listen.
not sure but this one helped me and my son
I liked him explaining how to get through to your child with no distractions.
yes because my son is a constant struggle. I want him to just be a "normal" little boy. He never will be but I will never stop trying and this book showed me and others different ways we could get thru to him. and I thank the author for that.
I hope to meet the author one day
