I am so excited! We finally have some time booked for a four day intensive at the Kaufman Clinic in Michigan. We are going the first week in October so I will be sure to post updates.
We managed to scrape together airfare and we are staying with family about twenty minutes from the clinic. However, we are still trying to figure out how to pay for the therapy itself. The four day program is $780 and then extra for the occupational therapy we are planning for him and any additional time with Nancy. Well worth it, I’m just not sure where the money is going to come from. Of course, insurance doesn’t cover anything. We will make it work somehow.
The occupational therapy is affordable in the big picture of things, it’s the evaluation required that’s the stinger. $400! However, they said if you bring an evaluation from your current OT that meets their requirements they will waive the evaluation. So I’m working with our wonderful OT on that and I am hoping it suffices.
I’m trying to manage my expectations, but I have to say I have high hopes. I can’t wait to see the outcome of all of this!
