My name is Yosef Rabin, I grew up in Chicago IL, and today live in Tel Aviv Israel.
Our daughter Aviva Liora was born like every other child, but at 8 months old we started to notice serious regressions in babbling, eye contact, motor skills, and more.
At one-year-old, our fears were confirmed and she was diagnosed with autism - we were devastated.
We brought her for treatment at the Mifne Center for Autism in Northern Israel. two months later, for a total immersion three-week holistic therapy (food, textures, water, sleep, touch, play....) and counseling for me and my wife.
We continued the Mifne method with private therapists at home (about $2,000 a month), and thank God our daughter has made much progress over the past year - she just turned two. However, the financial burden is heavy.
Countless families cannot afford early intervention and so we are embarking on this important project to help them in this great struggle.
