Evan’s Story: Overcoming Autism with the Son-Rise Program

Evan’s parents, Irini and Aris, were thrilled to welcome their second child. However, their joy was short-lived when they discovered their son, Evan, had autism. Evan’s symptoms were severe – he was non-verbal, made no eye contact, and struggled with potty training. The family was devastated, and they didn’t know where to turn.
After searching for an autism treatment program that could help their son, Irini and Aris met a family whose severely autistic daughter had made remarkable progress through a program called Son-Rise. This family gave Evan’s parents hope that there might be a way to help their son.
The Son-Rise program is a unique and intensive treatment approach for children with autism that focuses on creating a nurturing and accepting environment for the child. The program is based on the idea that children with autism have a unique way of perceiving the world and that by joining them in their world, parents and caregivers can help the child to learn and grow.
Despite initial skepticism, Irini and Aris decided to try the Son-Rise program. They began running the program for Evan, and after just one week, they saw a remarkable improvement. Evan was potty trained and starting to communicate with his parents. Over time, Evan’s progress continued to accelerate, and he made significant strides in his language skills, imaginative play, and social interactions.
Evan is now a different child than before the Son-Rise program. He can speak in paragraphs, read, and play elaborate imaginary games. He recognizes his parents and has formed strong bonds with them. The transformation that Irini and Aris have witnessed in their son is miraculous, and they credit the Son-Rise program for its remarkable progress.

My name is Adi, and I am the proud parent of Saar, a lively 17-year-old who happens to have autism. I have created a blog,, with the aim to share our family's journey and offer guidance to those who may be going through similar experiences. Saar, much like any other teenager, has a passion for football, cycling, and music. He is also a budding pianist and enjoys painting. However, his world is somewhat distinct. Loud sounds can be overwhelming, sudden changes can be unsettling, and understanding emotions can be challenging. Nevertheless, Saar is constantly learning and growing, and his unwavering resilience is truly remarkable.
