While ABA (Applied Behavioural Analysis) works for many children with severe autism symptoms, there is also an alternative called the “Son-Rise” approach. (See what I have written on this topic here.) In fact, as more and more parents are taught how to use this form of treatment, the more it seems we are hearing about positive outcomes — with some parents going so far as to claim, not only dramatic results, but even a cure.
As such, while I remain somewhat sceptical, I would, nevertheless, strongly recommend parents, caregivers and even behavioural therapists, check out the YouTube videos at this link before they decide which approach would be best for their children or patients.
Please note, however, that since Sandy does not endorse any particular approach or treatment protocol, the link is provided only as a resource.
