Medical professionals still do not know the root cause nor "absolute cure" for this just therapy that of course can be beneficial and some what help and ease the difficulties that come with the disorder, examples of this are things that Ian is doing now:
ABA therapy, play therapy, speech therapy all have shown minimal signs of improvement to be frank.... Anyways My Cousin & Godfather of Ian came across a different kind of out of the box therapy that i didnt even know about! Autism Service Dog Therapy! which consist of professional Trainers/Pyschologists training the puppy from just weeks old and amazingly guaranteeing a 100% sucess rate in the specific treatment of autism. What I found to be most attractive was the service was in Raleigh, N.C. whih is just an hour and a half drive from where I live.
I did some investigating and read numerous webpages where it stated the price for one of these service animals and was baffled at what I had found! the most expensive ones I saw were anywhere from 17-20k easily. To my luck, Rycon which is the name of the one I would go with here in North Carolina was the most affordable one at 14,000 which must be fulfilled either in payment plans or however else desired by the time the puppy is fully trained and ready to be taken on(which is about 11 months to a year give or take) The bottom line of me doing this is to have hope that i can raise these 8,000 and still find myself a way on how to come up with the remaining balance which would still be a hefty 6,000 out of pocket. I hope you all understand how important it is to find any alternative possible that can help my son with this terrible condition! i have never believed more in the saying EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS than as I write this. God Bless and thank you for listening.
