Can The Family Hope Center Help My Child?

  • We work with parents of children of all ages, with many kinds of disabilities and diagnoses.
  • We help parents understand the neurological and nutritional origins of their child’s challenges – that is,
  • We help parents understand how injuries and poor function in the brain show up as developmental delays, learning disabilities, communication, motor, or seizure disorders, and other traditional diagnoses like ADHD.
  • We then help parents build and implement customized plans that leverage brain plasticity and optimal health to maximize their child’s development.

 

Your first step is to take the Parent Training Course, where you will;

  • Learn about the neurological and nutritional origins of your child’s challenges.
  • Learn about the reality of brain plasticity.
  • Learn that it is possible to build a customized plan that leverages brain plasticity that will maximize your child’s development.
  • Learn that it is possible for you to implement this plan in your home.
  • Understand how injuries and poor function in the brain show up as developmental delays, learning disabilities, communication / motor / seizure disorders, and other traditional diagnoses (e.g., ADHD).
  • Learn how to use the Family Hope Center’s proprietary evaluation tool to assess how your child’s brain is developing and find out which neurological pathways and physiological systems need the most support.
  • Learn how to build a basic but effective set of exercises and a nutritional protocol that will promote your child’s brain growth and maturation.
  • Learn how to implement these exercises and the nutritional protocol in your home, and personally oversee your child’s progress.

How many hours per day does the program take?

Our goal is to teach you information and provide you with the tools, knowledge, and guidance to help your child thrive. Part of that is helping you understand how to prioritize what to spend your valuable time and effort on based on your goals and your child’s needs. Parents implement as much or as little of our recommendations as they can based on their unique circumstances. In both the Parent Training Course and in all our more intensive service offerings – should you choose to partner with us – we will work with you to balance the needs of your child and the most effective things to work on in the present moment.

How long will it take to heal my child? How many appointments will I have to come to?

While that is impossible to answer, with few exceptions, every injury to the brain is capable of healing. No matter how mild or profound, we have rarely run across a brain injury that couldn’t be improved or completely healed given enough time, the correct approach, and dedicated effort. As a parent, we know you will continue to be relentless in the pursuit of creating a productive and satisfying life for your child. We are here to help you do so.

About the Parent Training Course

How will the Parent Training Course help with my child’s specific diagnosis?

Impaired brain function is at the root of many delays in development. To help your child, you need to understand the way a child’s brain develops, how brain plasticity works, and how nutrition underpins optimal brain function. You also need practical, hands-on ways to measure and promote your child’s development.

In the Parent Training Course, we address each of the above areas in detail. Most importantly,

  • You will learn how to use our proprietary evaluation tool to assess how your child’s brain is developing and find out which neurological pathways and physiological systems need the most support.
  • You will also learn how to build a basic but effective set of exercises and a nutritional protocol that will promote your child’s brain growth and maturation.

In particular,

  • Learning Disabilities: Lesson 8 covers learning and reading, from early development up to high school age. In addition, Lesson 9 covers using mobility for children struggling with learning. Finally, Lesson 6 covers respiration, nutrition, and the fundamentals of healthy living. These often contribute to delays in development and are critical to supporting the developing brain and optimizing brain growth and maturation.
  • Social-emotional disorders and Behavioral Issues: Lesson 8 covers social-emotional development and includes proactive strategies for dealing with challenging behavior. In addition, Lesson 9 covers using mobility for children struggling with social-emotional or behavioral issues. Finally, Lesson 6 covers respiration, nutrition, and the fundamentals of healthy living. These often contribute to delays in development and are critical to supporting the developing brain and optimizing brain growth and maturation.
  • Speech & Language or Communication Delays: Lesson 8 covers the critical elements of the early development of language and communication. In addition, Lesson 9 covers using mobility for children struggling with expressive or receptive language delays. Finally, Lesson 6 covers respiration, nutrition, and the fundamentals of healthy living. These often contribute to delays in development and are critical to supporting the developing brain and optimizing brain growth and maturation.
  • Motor Disorders: Lesson 9 covers motor development and for children who struggle with mobility. In addition, Lesson 6 covers respiration, nutrition, and the fundamentals of healthy living. These often contribute to delays in development and are critical to supporting the developing brain and optimizing brain growth and maturation.
  • Developmental Delays: Lesson 7 covers how to develop the sensory pathways. Lesson 8 covers learning and reading, early language development, social-emotional development, and dealing with challenging behavior. Lesson 9 covers mobility – for children who struggle with mobility, but most importantly, how the mobility pathway can be used to promote development in all other areas. Finally, Lesson 6 covers respiration, nutrition, and the fundamentals of healthy living: these often contribute to delays in development and are critical to supporting the developing brain and optimizing brain growth and maturation.
  • Sensory Processing Issues: Lesson 7 covers how to develop the sensory pathways. In addition, Lesson 6 covers respiration, nutrition, and the fundamentals of healthy living: these often contribute to delays in development and are critical to supporting the developing brain and optimizing brain growth and maturation.
  • Health Problem: Lesson 6 covers respiration, nutrition, and the fundamentals of healthy living. These often contribute to delays in development and are critical to supporting the developing brain and optimizing brain growth and maturation.

Does insurance cover any costs of the appointment?

It depends on your specific location, local policies, and insurance situation, but often, families are able to apply for reimbursement for some or all of the cost of an appointment with the Family Hope Center’s interdisciplinary team of specialists.

Please understand that, depending on your combination of insurance company, contract, and local policy, your insurance or social benefits may not cover all of the described services, or they may adjust the rate charged to what they believe is the usual and customary charge for the services as described.

For that reason, we cannot “accept assignment” (i.e., accept an insurance card as a guarantee of reimbursement).

However, we do provide families with resources and as much information as possible to support your submission for reimbursement to your insurance company.

It has been our experience, that a combination of a proper knowledge of the services rendered for your child and appropriate documentation will help you make a strong case for the reimbursement you are entitled to. In all cases, we will continue to strive to assist your family in acquiring the necessary resources to meet your goals for your child’s optimal developmental growth and independence.

Do you have any codes I can send to my insurance company to see if they will cover the appointment?

We can provide you with a full breakdown of each CPT code and a description of the corresponding services.
