His parents took intensive action. After working with several different agencies, they found the Center for Autism Related Disorders or "C.A.R.D" in Tarzana where toddler Ethan went through 30-40 hours a week of intensive applied behavior analysis or "ABA"
The nearly 40 hours a week went on for 4 years.
The therapist Ethan worked with was certain he would recover, but it was a harrowing ordeal
Though they lost their home, they gained their child back.
Only 10 percent of children diagnosed with autism get the top quality ABA therapy Ethan did.
And though it cost them everything including their marriage, Ethan is now just a typical kid living without autism.
