By age 4, when Nathan regressed so deep into autism, he could, if I let him, sit in one spot of the room and simply wave pages of a book on his lips…all
day. I would be able to hide how autistic he had become by turning on his favorite Barney show and play it over and over again.
No amount of conventional therapy or kindergarten would have gotten Nathan “connected” again. In fact stopping his behaviors simply made him more aggressive.
And this is why I chose the Son-Rise Program.
By learning to love Nathan so deeply, even all the crazy stimming he would do, Nathan welcomed me into his world.
