The median salary in the US in the first quarter of 2019 was $46,800.
The National Research Council recommends young people with autism get
25+ hours a week of therapy.
25 hours/week = 1300 hours/year
Without insurance, therapy can easily cost more than $70/hr.
$70 x 1300 = $91,000/year
Even with insurance, max out of pocket rates are typically around $8,000/year.
If you have to purchase insurance, premiums can be around $400/mo = $4,800 -
then you still have to pay out of pockets up to $8,000.
