Jack is the most amazing child facilitator ever! He has worked with my son for over 4 years and he's one of our favourite people!

See Jack & The Son-Rise Program® in Action!
JACK & ANTONY
In this clip, notice how Jack uses Antony’s motivation for telling the time to inspire Antony to play with him. Jack uses The Son-Rise Program® technique of the 3Es (Energy, Excitement and Enthusiasm) in a variety of ways to make himself funny and entertaining for Antony. When Antony’s motivation changes to saying “Eat", Jack changes the interaction so that Antony is still motivated to play with him.
In the Son-Rise Program, we joyfully celebrate all of our children's attempts to participate - notice how Jack consistently celebrates Antony throughout the clip. Using The Son-Rise Program ABC Model, Jack also bonds with Antony by joining in with Antony's brief exclusive activities (such as looking at the paper on the table, and flapping two cards).
JACK & YASH
In this clip, Jack starts by bonding with Yash using The Son-Rise Program® technique of Joining in Yash's "ism" (an exclusive and repetitious activity). In The Son-Rise Program, we only challenge our children when they give us Green Lights for interaction, which Yash gives by asking Jack for a foot massage.
Notice how Jack uses The Son-Rise Program 3E's (Energy, Excitement, and Enthusiasm) to celebrate Yash, and to indirectly challenge Yash to keep playing with him. As Yash continues to give Jack Green Lights for interaction, Jack uses The Son-Rise Program Direct-Challenging techniques to help Yash use longer sentences (for example, Jack gives Yash long pauses to process and attempt each Direct Challenge). See how successful Yash is at mastering this longer sentence!
