Worth the journey

WHY is therapy for autism and adhd so hard to come by? We have some therapy groups in town, but you have to wait MONTHS to get in. I'm now making a roughly 7 hour trip every other week so my son can get 8 sessions of OT to try and catch up to where he needs to be. We left yesterday morning around 9am and we got home after 6, for a 1 hour OT appointment. The place nearest to me has an 8 month wait, the next closest keeps kids coming back indefinitely if they have good insurance. We had a full work day for 1 session. And we have to do this every other week, in addition to everything else. I know it's worth the journey, but mercy I wish we had better services here!
