This article about a Georgia family running through their savings and battling insurance agencies has given me pause.  I don’t feel I’m doing enough for the boys right now.

I have focused more on a long term plan because I don’t want to leave them in a situation with no savings to fall back on, but I have done that by cutting out the extra therapy they were receiving from Douglass College Outreach.

As the title says, parents of autistic children need to balance the cost of therapy now against the needs of the future.   I feel that my boys are too comfortable in their cocoons and it will take professional help to bring them out of it.

I guess I still entertain hopes that they will cultivate a savant level skill or heck just find something they really enjoy.

At the end of the day, the hope of the parent never fades.
