When we went to therapy for the first time I had to complete a paper evaluation of Adric's habits. At the end of the evaluation he had scored just 13 out of 100 points and the Occupational Therapist confirmed he had Sensory Processing Disorder. It was an awful day, and a hopeful day. It's hard to see on paper that something is wrong with your child, but it's so good to get answers.
Over a year has passed since his SPD diagnosis and now our insurance will no longer pay for his therapy and new symptoms have shown their ugly head. I now believe that in addition to SPD my little guy is on the Autism Spectrum. In order to receive services for Adric and for our insurance to cover the expensive OT/PT and Applied Behavioral Therapy Adric must be evaluated at an autism center. There are only 14 centers in MI and each has a wait list of at least 6 months. We have finally been able to schedule an appointment! Unfortunately, our insurance does not cover the evaluation and we have to pay for it out-of-pocket. Our appointment is January 10, and we will have to travel over an hour from our home for the all day evaluation. The funds from this campaign will cover Adric's evaluation and our travel expenses. If you know Adric, you know he doesn't like new things, or changes so we are hoping to make this a good experience for him. We want him to feel safe, loved, and cared for, any help you can give will be so appreciated! Thank you in advance.
