Damion Cook has autism. He loves to play with water and feel the tactile sensation of the water on his hands as he is doing here with his cat "Hissy" in his back yard in Tremonton, Monday, Oct. 1, 2012. On October 2nd, Lorena Cook's son Damion turns 3. He'll have extra reason to celebrate with the federal approval of a Medicaid waiver that will help middle-income families like the Cooks afford autism treatment for their kids. She applied for the waiver on Monday. Time will tell whether she gets one of 250 slots available statewide.
