Watch Son-Rise: A Miracle of Love
- 1 hr 39 min
This drama, based on Barry Neil Kaufman's book, is the true life story of how one set of parents dealt with the autism and mental retardation of their son Raun. Suzie and Bears Kaufman's joy at having their first son is short-lived when he is diagnosed with classic autism. After taking a pass on the only forms of therapy offered to them, institutionalization or aversion therapy, the Kaufmans decide to work with Raun themselves. Their method of distraction play therapy that helped Raun, called The Son-Rise Program, has become a teaching model now used by other therapists.
