Book Tours: Silver Linings (Raun Kaufman) (2000)

Episode 55
Available worldwide

As a child, Raun Kaufman would spin plates, rock back and forth, and cover his eyes for hours at a time. Diagnosed with autism it was believed that he didn't want anything to do with others and had an IQ of 30. His diagnosis came at the age of 18 months, but as he says, his parents never gave up on him.

What they did is saw him as incredible gift, by looking at his abilities and not his deficiencies. They nurtured a purpose behind the things that he was doing. By doing this they fostered connections and communication with him. Today, he works with autistic, hyperactive, and ADD children to help them overcome their disorders in a healthy manner.

Check out this inspiring Book Tours interview with Corinne Edwards.

I loved this video until Corrine Edwards made the comment: 'take care of this wild Indian over here' in response to Raun's description of the classroom behavior that gets the most focus as, "... hitting other kids, throwing things, yelling, screaming, acting up ... ". I HOPE SHE NO LONGER WORKS FOR THIS NETWORK!
