Autism Therapy for Dasha Hammons
Neurofeedback Therapy, ABA Therapy, and Alternative Functional Medicine Therapy. Currently Dasha has the opportunity to do Stem Cell and NeurofeedbackTherapy. The problem is, no insurance is going to cover this in the United States until it is fully backed by the FDA. So the cost is tough. The recommendation is the younger the child, the better the chance of recovery from Autism. ABA costs alone are a heavy burden to our family. Dasha has the opportunity to see if this therapy can be a life changer for her. Stem Cell Therapy has a possibility to help Dasha in ways nothing else can. Without that chance, she may never get to a cognitive level of even just being able to read a book. Being that she is eight years old, it is likely that it is the last year she can gain the best benefits of this therapy. If you feel led, please donate so she can start therapy right away.
Dasha is currently doing 40 hours of ABA therapy a week. Our goal is to do Stem Cell and Neurofeedback Therapy as well (Even though they can be the most effective, neither is covered by health insurance). At age eight, the ABA therapy has helped, but has not gotten her to a place where she can adapt to a classroom.
