Diagnosis: Living with Autism
Request: Speech Therapy
Ariel and his family came to Canada 2 years ago. Ariel was diagnosed with autism once in Canada. He was receiving some publicly funded speech therapy support but recently turned 5. His parents were trying hard to afford private sessions for Ariel but struggled. Speech therapy has helped Ariel; he can now repeat sounds, repeat words, and use single words independently. Ariel needs weekly speech therapy sessions to continue working on his language skills and work towards being able to communicate his wants and needs on his own.
