April is Autism Awareness Month
It is Autism Awareness Month and it is staggering the number of children being diagnosed within the Autism Spectrum of Disorders, at the moment 1 in 88 children are being diagnosed and 1 in 54 boys will be diagnosed with Autism. It is still difficult to say for sure whether it is because of heightened awareness and therefore more children being diagnosed than before, or whether it is because of more children actually being born with or having a late onset of an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
There is Hope for Autism
The numbers are rapidly growing and yet there still doesn’t seem to be an answer within the medical profession on how it can be prevented or how it can be treated. There are many theories on why and many therapies for recovery, however probably the most accepted therapy so far is early intervention – the earlier the better.
There is hope for children diagnosed with ASD. We personally went down that road and have never looked back, Isy Bee is a testament to what can be achieved as are many other children who’s parents and carers have taken the same path.
Shortly after Isy was diagnosed Liz went to America to do the Son Rise program. It was the first step of a long stairway to achieving not a cure, but a recovery of the symptoms of Autism. The program has been designed by a couple who have had remarkable success with their son who was diagnosed with severe Autism in the 1970’s. They were basically told by professionals back then to put him in an institution as there was no hope of recovery. They proved them very wrong!
Barry Neil Kaufman and his wife Samahria Lyte Kaufman started the Option Institute and the Son Rise Program to help others in the same situation as them, the rest is history. The Son Rise Program is certainly a credit to what they achieved with their son Raun who is now a University Graduate and an international speaker, writer and teacher for The Son-Rise Program.
