Neurological Approaches

FHC Clinical Principals/Approaches

At the Family Hope Center, we believe that parents, given the proper knowledge, skills, and tools, have the capacity to implement highly effective interventions for their children. A parent-driven therapeutic model designed to educate caregivers results in parents who feel more proactive, empowered, and better able to address their children’s developmental needs.

Our clinical approach relies on five areas:
1. Neuroplasticity and Neurogenesis

    • Learn a variety of common mechanisms that contribute to brain dysfunction
    • Learn the connection between deficits in motor, sensory, visual, auditory, language, cognitive, and emotional/social pathways and treatments that promote neurogenesis in those areas

2. Physiology and Biology

    • Learn how nutritional approaches—including restorative sleep, adequate oxygenation, reduction of toxic exposures, and proper alimentation—lay a foundation for the recovering brain

3. Evaluate a child’s abilities using a comprehensive, developmental assessment tool

    • Use of a novel, comprehensive tool for assessing neurological age as compared to chronological age

4. Neurologically, physiologically, and developmentally based treatment approaches

    • Learn the primary components of an intensive brain rehabilitation program in a way that participants can explain it to those who might benefit from such an approach
    • Demonstrate use of tools, such as carbogen, motor programs, and reflex integration, which have been shown to further develop neurological function
    • Connect the concepts of brain rehabilitation into the management of patients with dyslexia, ADHD, autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and any condition in which the brain is not functioning in every area at its chronological age

5. Family-centered, evidence-informed, and neuroplasticity approaches to treat brain-injured children
