How Joining Children in ‘Autistic Behaviors’ Can Help Them Recover

Part 1: Innovative Approach to Autism

Raun Kaufman, CEO & Founder, Autism Treatment Center of America, was diagnosed with severe autism at a very young age. He was not capable of language or eye contact and had an IQ of less than 30. His parents decided to address his autism with a home-based, more child-centered program that helped Raun recover from his condition. The Autism Treatment Center of America focuses on “joining” children with autism in their own world rather than forcing them to conform to one they don’t yet understand.
