All parents want their children to be happy, healthy, and successful, but your child is struggling neurodevelopmentally.

“We could see his heart and soul were still bursting with abundant life and beauty.”

It’s hard for you to see your child frustrated, sad, and struggling to reach their true potential.

The experts are telling you there is very little you can do for your child and not to expect much.

You worry about your child’s future – will they be able to take care of themselves when you are not there anymore?

You want your child to get better, but they are not making progress.

No matter what though, you will not stop looking for ways to help your child.

“It made much more sense to me that we should be working on creating new neurological pathways rather than trying to fix the manifestation of the broken ones…”

We Are Believers, For Good Reason

For more than 40 years,we’ve studied the neurological origins of disabilities in children and developed practical, effective ways of promoting brain healing and growth.

We started our own family during the early part of this 40-year journey. Two of our children faced complex neurodevelopmental difficulties

We applied the same approaches to our children that we teach to all parents, and with lots of love, hard work, and dedication, our children overcame their challenges.

Today, our daughters are confident adults with meaningful relationships and purposeful professional lives.

So, we have two perspectives to share with you—one as parents and one as professionals.

As parents, we truly understand what you are going through, and we know how resilient you are.

As professionals, we know that with few exceptions, every injury to the brain is capable of healing – given the correct approach, dedicated effort, and time.

How To Help Your Child


Learn How Your Child’s Brain Works And Grows

Understand how injuries and poor function in the brain show up as developmental delays, learning disabilities, and other diagnoses like ADHD and autism.


Assess Your Child’s Current Neurodevelopmental Abilities

Measuring the developmental and functional abilities of your child is the most vital step in building a successful plan to help them.

Use our parent-friendly evaluation tool to evaluate how your child’s brain is developing and find out which neurological pathways and physiological systems need the most support.


Implement Your Child’s Individualized Home-based Neurodevelopmental Treatment Plan

Take personal control of your child’s neurotherapeutic activities and nutrition as you implement their treatment plan in your home.


Update Your Child’s Neurodevelopmental Treatment Plan As They Develop And Progress

Neuroplasticity is a reality, and as you work with your child at home, you will begin to see positive changes. As that happens, you will periodically reassess your child to account for this growth. Each reassessment will provide you with an easy and objective way to see how your child is progressing and will be the basis for your child’s updated treatment plan.

Conditions We Address

At the Family Hope Center, we work with parents of children who have an extensive and complex array of neurologically based challenges, (dis)abilities, and disorders.

If your child’s difficulties are of neurological or neurodevelopmental origin or if they have a medical or genetic condition with neurodevelopmental consequences, we can help.

We work with parents of children who have received the following diagnoses:


Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Behavioral Disorders

e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorders

Cerebral Palsy

Developmental Delays

Speech Disorders

Emotional and Behavioral Disorders

Auditory Processing Disorder

Nonverbal Learning Disabilities

Genetic Disorders

e.g., Down syndrome

Learning Disabilities

e.g., dyslexia

Seizure Disorders

e.g., epilepsy

Sensory Processing Disorder

Motor Disorders

Intellectual Disabilities

Measuring Results

The effectiveness of any therapeutic approach must be periodically assessed using standardized and validated measures. The Family Hope Center assesses the effectiveness of its approach using the WeeFIM®, the pediatric version of the Functional Independence MeasureTM (FIM®).

Both the FIM® and WeeFIM® were developed by Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR) from the World Health Organization’s bio-psycho-social model of disability. They are functional assessment tools for evaluating essential abilities in individuals with neurodevelopmental disabilities along three dimensions: self-care, motor function, and cognition.

UDSMR notes: “Since its inception in 1987, the FIM® instrument has been widely regarded and adopted by clinicians and researchers around the world for its brevity and reliability. A sizeable library of supporting research and study sustains the FIM® instrument’s reliability and validity. To date, more than 1,300 published articles support the FIM® instrument, and ongoing research and study continues.” (Read more clinical research about the WeeFIM® here).

Our WeeFIM® results show that children’s neurological and functional capabilities significantly improve through the Family Hope Center’s parent-implemented home-based therapy.

In one week from today, he will be racing for the Danish Para-cycling team in the Danish Championships. We have no idea of how he is going to preform - but, I am so proud of him. All the hard work has turned out wonderful.
