Keep Jacob In Therapy!

UPDATE | Jacob 16 months later. He is now able to attend school in Quebec and is doing well. Thank you!

Jacob is Autistic. He is smart but he learns differently. The waitlist for government funded therapy is excruciatingly long. Neuroplasticity is greatest before the age of six. We took all of our savings and started Jacob in private Intensive Behavioural Intervention in April at a cost of $5070 per month. He went from 1 word sentences to 10 word sentences. Thanks to the therapy centre he is now day potty trained. He has so much untapped potential! Early intervention works! Help us keep Jacob in therapy!

we are selling our home in the hopes of paying for more therapy!
