You need to read this book if you have a child with special needs! Not because it will give you answers but because it will give you hope. Hope that there is a better way. I wish everyone had access to Mr Kaufman's work.

This is an amazing read about an amazing family and how they transformed their little boy with Autism into the man he is today, CEO of the family business and spokesman. You really can believe in this miracle.

The Kauffman family has created the Option Living program which has become well-known since their son Raun's recovery from autism in the late 1970s.
Roby Soto, a man living in Mexico learns about the Kauffmans after reading "Son-Rise." His son, Robertito Jr. exhibits much of the same behavior Raun did early in his treatment program. By age 5, Robertito is neither toilet trained nor verbal and his contact is fleeting at best, non-existent at work. Roby, his wife Francisca head north to work with the Kauffmans to restore Robertito.
Raun, of course, takes to his new friend immediately. He loves Robertito's round, full cheeks and from the minute they meet, Raun almost never leaves his new friend's side. I really like the way the author calls Robertito and his parents "our new friends." The staff of devoted volunteers work endlessly and tirelessly with Robertito in one-on-one fashion. They do what Raun's parents originally did with Raun -- they join Robertito in whatever self-stimulating activity he is engaged in, talking to him all the time. Robertito makes great leaps and bounds in speech and self care and at the close of the book, a doctor who had treated him earlier marvels at the boy's progress.
I love the way the author shows his high degree of empathy for all persons. In one chapter, he describes a concentration-camp like institution for autistic children where the kids are cattle prodded into compliance. One weird task is to get the children to "hug their instructors." Barry throws down the article in disgust, saying that autism is a communciation disorder. Why were the children in this place treated this way and referred to as "it" instead of a boy or a girl? And why would anybody want to hug their instructors if their instructors treated them like Holocaust prisoners. Barry is a very astute, loving, kind, intelligent and humane person. He has my unflagging respect. So does his wife, Sumitra (formerly Suzy) and their three children, Bryn, Thea and Raun. They are truly sterling examples of what love is really all about.
God bless the Kauffmans! God bless the Sotos! This book deserved a special place of honor in our hearts and bookshelves.

A Miracle to Believe In offered me a rainbow as the storm called autism blew into my life. When the "experts" forecasted a gloomy future for my autistic son, this book offered me hope and happiness through love and acceptance. It showed me how to see my son as a pot of gold, a treasure and a gift, just as he was. It taught me how to want everything for him without expecting anything to change. I learned that true happiness is a choice and can be attained even when I don't get what I want (ie, a "normal" child). Love is a powerful motivator as this book reveals.
This book is required reading for anyone who works with my son in our Son-Rise program, which we run 48 hours a week in a playroom like the book describes. Our son is a miracle in progress. Where ever he ends up, I know that I will experience sheer delight each time he looks into my eyes or holds my hand or gives me a kiss. This book has taught me to relish the simple moments while "going for the gold" in our Olympic adventure of life with a perfectly autistic little boy.
I will be forever indebted to Barry and Samahria Kaufman for their courage, conviction, and above all ... love. They are truly champions of life.

I ordered this book as part of the Sonrise Starter Package from the Options Institute. It was a great look into how to run an autism treatment program, though it has certainly evolved from the early years. There were some elements to the book that I thought were really unnecessary and even distracting from the message-the details of how Suzi's dress hugged her breasts and thighs, for example. Also, conspicuously absent in this book and in any subsequent publication is any type of epilogue. How is Robertito doing now? Did the program have any long term success?

People face all types of challenges in their lives. This book details the challenges facing the parents of a special needs child and the manner in which they chose to flourish instead of buckle under that challenge.Barry Kaufman's message of acceptance in the face of the negative prognosis of all the medical community is a gift to all that face such challenges in their own lives. He suggests opportunity to grow, where others see only tragedy. He finds hope where others find only fear. This inspiring book should be required reading for all those blessed with special needs children and for all of those who want to change their attitudes regarding life around to a more peaceful and happier existance. One of the more unique aspects of this book is the incite it gives you into the other wonderful volunteers and people who work with this little boy. He not only changes the lives of his parents, but everyone around him that he touches.
If you are feeling blue about what cards life has dealt you, read this book and your deck will get a serious reshuffle!!!
