Tori received vision, physical, and occupational therapies through Early Intervention, at no cost to us.
The cost of her stander (a vital piece of equipment) was $13,000. Thankfully, our insurance covered it. That isn’t usually the case for most families.
Her adaptive stroller was over $5,000 (again, covered by insurance).
We were so fortunate to have a generous insurance company, and we were even more thankful that they never fought us for any of the needed equipment. But, sadly, this is not the norm. Most parents end up spending valuable time fighting for needed equipment and therapies instead of having quality time with their child. This needs to change.
