Before Angel was diagnosed, he was able to say peoples names that he knew already, he was able to tell me when he was hungry/thirsty. When we could call out for him, he would respond. Little by little he was losing all these traits. We would call out to him, and he wouldn't pay attention almost as if he was deaf. He began losing his ability to speak the very few words he knew.
I enrolled Angel at preschool when he was 3 years old and they diagnosed my son. After that I was very distraught. I couldn't accept that my son was diagnosed with Autsim and I didn't know what to do. When we go to the grocery store, I'm not able to let go of his hand. He'll run around, knock things down and not be aware of things that can hurt him.
We've taken him to various therapies, that include: speech, occupational, dolphin, horse, behavioral & physical therapies.
We discovered this BTC (Brain treatment center) that is located in Newport Beach, California.
I've talked to some of families that have been here and some have very good stories with their children improving tremendously. My goal here is for Angel to be able to communicate with us, be aware of danger around him, be able to use the restroom with minimal assistance and be more independent.
We came from New Mexico to California for a one week trial and they told us Angel was a candidate and it can help him. We don't have an official date set for the treatment yet, but we would like to bring him in December 2017. I'm wanting to raise money to be able to bring him and afford this treatment. It is $10,000 a month and I would like to bring him for 2 months.
Thank you for taking the time in reading our story and for all the support. God Bless you all.
