Raun K. Kaufman

Realizing the Potential of
Your Autistic Child
“VANCOUVER, British Columbia”
Virtual – Pacific Daylight Time (PDT)

9am – 12:30pm

Everyone raising or working with a child, youth or adult with any diagnosis of being under the Autism Spectrum. 


Raun K. Kaufman is the author of  Autism Breakthrough: The Groundbreaking Method That Has Helped Families All Over the World and the former CEO of the Autism Treatment Center of America.  In addition to his work with families and educators over the past 23 years, Raun brings a distinctive qualification to the realm of autism treatment: his own personal history.

As a child, Raun was diagnosed with severe autism and recommended for lifelong institutionalization. Instead, his parents developed The Son-Rise Program, which enabled their son to emerge from his autism with no trace of his former diagnosis. His story was recounted in the best-selling book, Son-Rise: The Miracle Continues, and the award-winning NBC-TV movie, Son-Rise: A Miracle of Love.  

An international lecturer and graduate of the Ivy League’s Brown University with a degree in Biomedical Ethics, Raun has conducted lectures, seminars, and workshops throughout the U.S., Europe, and Asia. His articles have been published in The Autism File and Good Autism Practice and in books such as Silver Linings and Cutting-Edge Therapies for Autism.  He has been interviewed by the National Public Radio, BBC Television, Fox News Channel, The London Telegraph and People Magazine.

“I am a physician who treats thousands of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, and I have seen Raun K. Kaufman and The Son-Rise Program in action both for my own son and for countless others. The program is sensible and useful for affected persons with ASD’s of all ages, and I refer patients frequently. The results have been scientifically validated and are excellent both for the family and the patient, and I’ve seen the objective improvements in my patients with my own eyes.”

—Phillip C. DeMio,M.D.,
executive Director, American Medical Autism Board & Chief Medical Officer, U.s. Autism association
