Son-Rise: A Miracle of Love
1979, True Life
After Bears (James Farentino) and Suzi Kaufman (Kathryn Harrold) notice their young son Raun's (Casey Adams) problems with hearing and vision, they take him to be evaluated by experts. Doctors tell the Kaufmans that Raun is autistic, severely developmentally disabled and completely untreatable. But the couple refuses to accept his condition as permanent and struggles to help him develop his cognitive abilities using their own therapy methods -- an autism treatment program now known as Son-Rise.
