April may be halfway over (already?!), but it's still Autism Awareness Month. To celebrate, we're giving away three copies of AUTISM BREAKTHROUGH by Raun K. Kaufman to some lucky librarians.
As a boy, Raun Kaufman was diagnosed by multiple experts as severely autistic, with an IQ below 30, and destined to spend his life in an institution. Years later, Raun graduated with a degree in Biomedical Ethics from Brown University and has become a passionate and articulate spokesperson for the autism community. So what happened?
Thanks to Son-Rise, an incredible program his parents created, Raun experienced a full recovery from autism. In AUTISM BREAKTHROUGH, Kaufman presents the ground-breaking principles behind Son-Rise and shows how and why the program, which focuses on the parent-child connection, works. The book also includes clear, practical strategies for working with children that readers can apply immediately—in some cases, parents see a change in their children in as little as one day.
To enter the giveaway, simply email Library@MacmillanUSA.com from your professional/library-issued e-mail address (subject: Autism Breakthrough) by Wednesday, April 30. Make sure to include your library's mailing address to be placed in the random drawing. Read on for the fine print. Good luck!
