Selective Mutism Treatment For Jack

$3,225 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 58 people in 59 months
We need help getting our 12 year old son, Jack treatment for his Selective Mutism and also his sensory processing disorder, social anxiety, feeding disorder, and sleep disorder. Most people don't truly undestand the seriousness of Selective Mutism, so click here if you want to learn what we are going through. 

We have tried to find help for the last few years and have been unable to get help for him.  We have seen specialists at UVA (University of Virginia) but they are not able to help us with the severity of these disorders.  He has had therapy for over a year, been on medicine, but nothing has helped. We have looked everywhere to get him the help he needs but there is no help for Jack in this area.

After much search and deadend leads we have finally found an excellent week long treatment session in Ann Arbor, Michigan called the Confident Kids Camp. The camp includes 30 hours of intensive selective mutism treatment and one on one counseling as well as interaction with other children with the same condition. The program however is not covered by our insurance and the cost is $2400 for the entire week, we would all need to go and stay in a hotel for the week which would cost over $1000.

We have saved up about $1000 ourselves and still need some support. They only have 2 more slots available and time is closing. We really need our friends and family to share this so we can register him before it is too late. The full payment is due at registration. This is our last hope in getting Jack the help he needs, we have tried everything. If everyone could share this with their network of friends it would go along way in reaching our goal. Thanks and god bless.

I wanted to truly thank all the kind words and support we have received during the last few weeks. It is really heart warming to know there are people who care so much. We will keep everyone updated on our journey to Michigan in the upcoming weeks and the progress Jack makes. Again, thank you and god bless.

Just found out today Jack has Alopecia totalis. He's been losing hair in the back of his head and in the front, as well as patches on his legs and arms. He's been put on some different medicines in hopes to catch it quick before he loses all of his hair. If the selective mutism wasn't enough, now this. When it rains it pours I guess.
