At The Family Hope Center, we don’t look at symptoms alone; we examine the main cause of your child’s developmental difficulty. We carefully measure a baseline of social, motor and sensory function using our proprietary Integrative and Developmental Progression (IDP) chart. This comprehensive diagnostic tool – which measures brain function across age categories and developmental areas – is the basis for our ongoing measurement of your child's progress.
After completing our Integrative and Developmental Progression (IDP) chart, parents are able to see a comprehensive overview of their child’s development status as well as where their child is headed developmentally in the coming weeks, months and years. By mapping your child's abilities within our IDP matrix, you will be able to see a path to improving your child's developmental process.
This scientifically validated chart categorizes your child's sensory, motor, and emotional/social brain functions into seven domains: Seeing and reading, hearing and understanding, sensation and tactility, locomotion and mobility, communication and speech, manual and writing, and emotional and social.
By measuring the brain’s function, The Family Hope Center works hand-in-hand with you to create a customized plan of treatment that will "move" your child across the chart into successively higher levels of functioning.
