Almost all of Noah’s Therapies are out of pocket costs:  Medicaid will not cover his Feledenkrais, Warm Water Therapy, Cranial Sacral, Acpuncture, Hippotherapy, or Conductive Education.

We would love to travel for ABM therapy in California with Anat Baniel, ranging $2,800 every 3 months; Dolphin Therapy in Florida which costs $2,200 for 5 days http://www.islanddolphincare.org/program-2/5-day-therapy-program/ We’d also like to take Noah for Therasuit Therapy which is $1,650 each week and would be 4 weeks of therapy, http://www.suittherapy.com/program.htm None of these therapies take into consideration travel costs, food or hotel accomodations.
