Awarded Best Autism Therapy Badge

The Son-Rise Program, developed by the Autism Treatment Center of America®, is an alternative treatment program that breaks all the rules. Our program shows how joining children in their own unique worlds before asking them to join us in ours makes it possible for these special children to reach new heights! Since 1974, we have taught our unique and effective approach to help over 35,000 families worldwide.

Awarded Best Autism Therapy at the National AutismOne Conference!

What's Possible:

Through this breakthrough online autism program,
we have seen children:

  • Learn to speak for the first time, or if the child is verbal, engage in natural, reciprocal conversations.
  • Develop deep and meaningful relationships, no matter how disconnected they were at the start.
  • Reduce and eliminate tantrums, aggression and other challenging behaviors.
  • Experience real happiness, satisfaction, and love.
  • Live a full life that includes making close friends, college, dates, sports, and jobs.

"The child development team [who originally evaluated our son] told us Bridger would always be in his own world. Then we found The Son-Rise Program. Within 6 months, Bridger was using language. After nearly a year of the program, he walked up to me and spontaneously announced, 'I love you, Mommy!' Years later, Bridger graduated from high school with honors. He spent his senior year as Student Body President and captain of the tennis team. He then went on to college in the fall. What you have done for us is priceless!"
