My son will be 2 in May and just got diagnosed last week with ASD. He is currently getting 30 minutes a week of speech therapy and 1 hour a week of playtime (through the FSU C.A.R.D. center). The CARD center said that they are diagnosing him with ASD for now and will re-evaluate him in a year to confirm their diagnose. He was already getting speech therapy (30 mins. a week) through our local hospital rehab center since he was a severe preemie (born at 27 weeks). The CARD center suggested I call our Early Step program to see if they can offer any other services to us. I am still waiting on a return call but wanted to know how much therapy I need to request/push for. So my question is.....How much therapy (weekly) is needed to see good results????
