EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- In the comfort of his own home, 4-year-old Caleb spends 15 hours per week dedicated to constructing puzzles, identifying numbers and letters and reinforcing communication as a means to get what he's after.
For two and a half hours per session, Caleb is engaged in an in-home therapy program with Wellspring, an autism treatment agency.
This type of in-home treatment is now available in the Antelope Valley and to Edwards families through TRICARE and other insurance option
