Matthew has dedicated his life to helping children and adults with special needs and brain injuries since 1981. For more than 35 years Matthew has created neurodevelopment programs internationally, working with parents and specialists from more than 34 countries. He has helped and educated well over 15,000 families. After spending twenty years creating and managing development programs for an international clinic for brain-injured children, Matthew believed that integrating new advances in brain development were the keys to a child’s successful neurological growth and development. In 2002 he co-founded “The Family Hope Center” with Carol his wife, and brought together a team of physicians and clinicians to help teach, guide and support parents in helping develop their children. Since that time, he and his team have helped children achieve extraordinary breakthroughs and advances in independent movement leading to walking and running, communication and speech, vision and reading, social development, and learning. Matthew and his team continue to educate themselves and incorporate new developments and techniques into the Family Hope Center’s neurodevelopment approach–which continues to grow and evolve, much like the many children whose lives he has touched. Matthew has advanced certifications in Child Brain Development, Structural Integration, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Myofascial Release, Yuen Method, BodyTalk, Food and Environmental Sensitivity Clearing, Fascial Energetics, Muscular Biofeedback, Dynamic Postural Reflex Integration, AcuNova Acupuncture, and Quantum Laser Reflex Integration.
