His parents came to The Son-Rise ProgramĀ® Start-Up at the Autism Treatment Center of Americaā„¢ for help with autism treatment. Within a few days of running their Son-Rise Program at home, Jake began to say "Mommy" and "Daddy.". After 8 weeks of working with Jake in his Son-Rise Program playroom, his eye contact had improved 600%, his interactive attention span increased 1000% and he had a vocabulary of 50 words! Jake has gone on to succeed in mainstream school and today is a typical teenager.
