Hearing her son James diagnosed with classical autism when he was about 2 years old changed Angie Watterson's life.
"It started six months of me trying to get him on every waiting list I could get him on for therapy," the Tooele County mother said. "Our insurance wouldn't cover anything."
Her family drained savings to pay for about nine months of Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy, then ran out of money and had to quit.
"Trying to get him into an affordable therapy program, especially one that didn't have a year waiting list, was next to impossible," she said.
