I have just had an amazing experience. I was working my last session in The Son-Rise Program playroom with a delightful 13 year old boy. The way this lovely boy communicates is in a very deep low voice and very fast. Often you will hear him say clear words in amongst a string of other low and deep sounds if you only listen.

My training in The Son-Rise Program has helped me to listen with new ears. That comes from a deep desire to love and connect with an autistic person.

After joining him solidly for 10 minutes (he was picking hair off his legs and I pretended to pick hair off my legs too), he looked at me, said “I love you” and then walked over to me and gently took both my hands.

At the end of my session I said to him “Goodby Larry, I had an amazing time with you!” to which he replied “Me too, goodbye”. It’s all there, if you just listen!
