4 Ways Autism Has Been Treated Incorrectly

Part 2: How Autism Treatment Should Change

Raun Kaufman, CEO & Founder, Autism Treatment Center of America, talks about his recent book, Autism Breakthrough: The Groundbreaking Method That Has Helped Families All Over the World. The book is a terrific guide for parents and educators who want to establish better connections with autistic children. Raun gives  several “opposite-points”, or approaches that go against standard methods.

1) Join in autistic repetitious behaviors with autistic child

2) Utilize each child’s unique motivations and interests as a key to learning

3) Socialization goals before academic goals

4) Parents should show positive attitude and positive emotions towards their autistic child
