Teen's Family Transformed After Autism Intervention

Check out CNN's continuing Autism 911 series. This installment is about how a week of in-home therapy has dramatically changed a family's 13-year-old daughter's behavior. The therapy incorporated ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) and was donated by an organization. However, at $20,000 a week, I don't see how families are expected to cope. Clearly the therapy is effective, but what happens once it stops because a family can't afford it.
