Dawn Berge cuddles with her autistic son Zachary age 5 as his sister Carson, age 7, watches at their home on Friday, July 30, 2010, in Crestview, Fla. The Berges have filed a lawsuit against the Department of Defense, which administers their family's insurance, a program for active and retired military families known as TRICARE. They hope to recover the nearly $56,000 in expenses they incurred for Zachary's ABA therapy which is teaching him to speak and has eased his tantrums because he didn't know how to express what he wanted to say.
