This treatment has to be in an extent of 25 to 40 hours a week. With intensive therapy, whichlasts 1-3 years, it is necessary to follow at least 6 hours a day of behavioral therapy. In this therapy you have to start with children form 1 year of age.
"We learned about behavioral therapy 3 months ago and had been working on it for a month. Before she starts at school, I want to her be at the level of her classmates and to handle this we have to work intensively 6 hours a day or more at least two years continuously. "
Since the cost of therapy exceeds the amount of 600 000, - CZK, we established a fund for small Leontýnka where anyone can financially help HERE (I want to help a particular project or person -> Health -> Autism -> Collection for Leontýnka)
