We believe in empowering parents to heal their children with brain-related disabilities, and we know that healing comes from giving the brain what it needs to heal itself – proper nutrition and proper neuro-stimulation.
We have worked shoulder-to-shoulder with thousands of parents and their children since 1981. We have witnessed 40 years of parents healing their children with devotion, love, and purpose.
We started our own family during the early part of this 40-year journey. Two of our children faced complex neurodevelopmental difficulties.
Our first daughter began life as a healthy baby. She progressed well until the age of three months when she suffered an injury where we witnessed a serious neurological unraveling. She developed strabismus, lost function on her right side, and over the years, struggled with reading and writing.
We applied the same approaches to our daughter that we use for the children we treat at the Family Hope Center. It took many years of daily, diligent effort to completely develop our daughter’s neurological function, and we are proud to say that she now works at a pediatric hospital as a Doctor of Occupational Therapy.
We adopted our youngest daughter when she was five months old. She came to us with significant cortical and limbic impairments which manifested in many heartbreaking ways, including intellectual and emotional challenges.
We took steps to heal her as we did with her older sister. She has since graduated from college where she was a champion athlete, became a Lieutenant in the local Fire Department, and has been certified as an EMT. We are proud to say she is a happy and successful adult who enjoys helping others.
These results didn’t happen overnight. It took years of learning, dedication, patience, love, and continued faith in the brain’s ability to heal. As parents, we have the peace of knowing we were able to shepherd our daughters through their injuries and give them the best possible future. Our daughters know that their hard work and ours have paid off.
The result of this journey is that we have two perspectives to share with you—one as professionals and the other as parents. We were in a similar situation to you and recognize what you have been going through and how resilient you can be.
We are committed to you and want to share our knowledge, personal experiences, and neurological strategies to help you become empowered and productive neuro-parents.
We look forward to joining with you on your journey to heal your child.
