Toby's Journey to Recovery

Toby was born a happy healthy 8 pound 2 ounce baby boy. It was not until he was around 18 months that he started to show developmental delays. He had no words, poor eye contact, did not respond to his name, and started having seizures. By the age of 2 Toby was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We immediately began to get him all the help that was available. Even with all the therapy he still did not seem to be aware of his surrondings as if he was in his own world. We tried many different treatments, from ABA services to changing his diet, to hyperbaric oxegy therapy. We saw some improvment but nothing  significant. 

          Although life with Toby can be challenging at times, I would not change it for the world. Toby is about to be 5 years old and we are still working on potty training. He dose not have a high level awarness of danger and will run off if he is given the chance to. He communicates with mostly one word phrases and is having a hard time putting words together to communitcate. Even with all those struggles, Toby is a very bright, happy, loving little boy and we are forever gratefull to have been chosen to be his parents.

          It was not until recently that we have been  informed about the Brain Treatment Center. We began to reseach it and found out that it is fairly new, but has helped and is continuing to help many children recover from the signs of Autism. The Brain Treatment Center is located in Newport Beach, CA. MRT treatment can take up to 6 weeks.

           Unfortunately, the treatment is not covered by insurance and is very expensive on top of travel, hotel accommodations, and lost of wages. Therefore, I am asking family and friends to help make this possible. Toby has a long road ahead of him, but I believe with MRT treatment from the Brain Treatment Center, he has a high chance of having a significant change to his life. Any donations will be greatly apperciated.
