    This was GREAT! The SonRise method was the best way for our son. I will never forget the day a therapist from his school district came to evaluate him in his playroom. I asked them not to implement ABA/Discrete Trials, but she did anyway. The room had cameras running which allowed us to watch from the TV in the living room what was going on.

    David doesn’t have a mean bone in his body, has never had aggression issues, although that day, when she did the M&M trick, he looked up at her sweetly smiling and smacked her, giggled and went off on his own to play.

    The result is a crisis in adulthood where they have no idea how to function after school….. If ABA was so successful…there should be no crisis with ASD children goinginto adulthood

    Way to go Nikasmomma — a mom who stands up for what she feels is best for her child. There is something wonderful about the impact of the child’s REAL motivation out performing m&ms and lollipops! I wonder what ‘s the long term impact is of squelching a child’s real motivation with “treats” ?

    When our daughter was doing ABA, the therapist asked what kind of candy does she like? When I told the therapist that she didn’t eat candy, the therapist seemed dumbfounded. Wanting to help the therapist help our daughter potty train, speak etc., we turned her into a lollipop junkie. No surprise things got worse. After a few months of SR & motivating her with our joy in each little accomplishment, she was speaking sentences, potty trained & the 3hr tantrums w/ head banging were gone. No candy!

    My wife is going to attend the Sonrise startup program this June. We have been receiving OT, Speech, and Floortime Therapy through the California Early Start programs. After reading so much, both my wife and I liked the overall approach that the Sonrise program offers. We are under no illusions that our son will be “cured”, but rather with a lot of love, hard work (home therapy in conjunction with services rendered), we can continue to help him improve and hopefully mitigate his autism or even possibly take him off the spectrum if we are lucky. The most important thing is that we are going to work with him and give him our all. We are in the process of creating a distraction free playroom for him (which makes so much sense anyway!!), and have found tremendous support from his therapists who think this is a great idea. Good luck to all of you parents who are dealing with this life defining challenge. And I hope that we will be able to implement this program the right way and help our wonderful little boy!. Attitude is the key. A healthy attitude will allow for better results in anything you do in life!!
