Brian and Sean are currently undergoing hyperbaric treatment. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a new treatment for autism where pressure is increased in an attempt to boost the amount of oxygen in the child's brain. Researchers reported that 30 percent of the children who received the treatment reported greatly increased functioning. The cost of this treatment is extremely expensive, therefore we are planning a benefit on November 3, 2012 at Kildare's Irish Pub to help defray the cost. The Silverthorn family is committed to trying all researched-based therapies that show results in improving expressive and receptive communication strides for autistic children. We know that Brian and Sean will one day hang out with their cousins on the beach and say...
" Thanks for believing in us!". We thank you for helping us achieve our dream.
***Those unable to attend the event may donate through this website, every donation counts and is much appreciated***
