We believe that parents should be fully supported in realizing their goals for their children. Our mission is to to serve families of children with neurodevelopmental disorders around the world by educating and guiding parents to take a primary and active role in their children’s development.
WeeFIM is an 18-item, 7-level ordinal scale instrument that measures a child’s consistent performance in essential daily functional skills. Three main domains (selfcare, mobility, and cognition) are assessed by interviewing or by observing a child’s performance of a task to criterion standards. WeeFIM is categorized into 2 main functional streams: “Dependent” and “Independent”.
At the Family Hope Center, we work with parents whose children represent a vast and complex array of neurologically-based challenges, (dis)abilities, and disorders. Similarly, those children come to us with an equally diverse range of ages, functional abilities, and strengths. Whether your child is at risk for 1) poor neurodevelopmental outcomes for genetic or metabolic reasons, 2) suffered an injury prenatally (e.g., fetal alcohol syndrome) or during birth (e.g., Cerebral Palsy), or 3) suffered a general loss of function (e.g., Autism, TBI, Alzheimer’s), we help parents like you. In short, no matter the etiology, if your child’s difficulties are neurologically-based (cognitive, behavioral, motor, seizure, or communication disorder) or if their condition is likely to result in (or already has) adverse neurodevelopmental consequences, we can help.
