Parents of Children With Autism Recommend Free U.K. Presentation on Treatment Techniques Using The Son-Rise Program®

LONDON--(Marketwire - September 21, 2010) -  The Autism Treatment Center of America is launching a free lecture series in U.K. cities in October. The lecture details highly effective treatment techniques for use by parents of children with Autism and related developmental difficulties. Lecture attendees have seen miraculous changes in their children since attending.

"I would urge parents to grab the chance to go to a lecture," said Mark O., whose son was diagnosed with Autism. "The Son-Rise Program has seen my six-year-old's abilities improve so dramatically in the last year, that he is almost ready for a mainstream school. It helped him improve his verbal skills, flexibility and emotional ties, and improved the quality of life for me, my wife and our 10-year-old daughter."

Lee J. agrees. "Prior to attending Raun's lecture, my son Adam, who had been diagnosed with Autism, had no language, rarely looked at us, avoided physical contact, and flapped his hands," he says. "My wife and I went to Raun's lecture and it felt like someone had finally given us the answer. Four years later, our son has progressed beyond our expectations. He speaks in full sentences now! When I hear him say 'Night, night Daddy,' it melts my heart. That two-hour lecture was a turning point for all of us."

Attendees will be given techniques to use immediately from The Son-Rise Program at the lecture, presented by Raun K. Kaufman, international Autism lecturer and Director of Global Education of the Autism Treatment Center of America. Mr. Kaufman is the subject of the book Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues, which details his own recovery from Autism.
