Four-year-old Jane is a warrior who has been blazing her own path since she came into the world! She is fiercly independent and she loves her family. Jane likes to be outside, swing, climp, jump, and crash. She also loves Disney movies, squishmallows, books, and helping in the kitchen.
Jane was born at 31 weeks gestation and spent her first 35 days in the NICU. At the age of 2 months, she had skull surgery and then had to wear a helmet for 23 hours per day for 6 months. Jane was always a little behind her peers developmentally but began to walk and talk pretty typically. But at 22 months, she started to regress, no longer making eye contact and losing most of the words she had mastered. She was then diagnosed with Autism and Global Developmental Delay.
Early intervention is SO important and Jane's parents are doing their best to be sure she has the therapy that she needs. She has been on many waitlists for therapy and her parents have now find a place for her that is private pay only and does not accept health insurance. So they need your help to provide the the speech and occupational therapy that Jane needs to thrive!
