Many children diagnosed with mild to severe CP, autism, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and other behavioral or developmental challenges become labeled “special needs”, and carry these inaccurate, symptom-based diagnoses for many years.
In evaluating children with these symptoms we often find that, in addition to significant metabolic toxic sensitivities that adversely affect brain function, injuries in the brain stem, limbic area, cortex and cerebellum are evident. This dysfunction can prevent your child from receiving and processing information properly, which leads to delayed, inaccurate and inappropriate decisions. Because children with these symptoms often have problems in the brain stem area as well, they may alsohave issues with their coordination and mobility.
When a course of treatment is introduced that focuses on, and deals directly with these sensitivities in the affected area of the brain, real improvement in your child’s functioning and behavior will be seen, and we no longer need to rely on life long coping strategies.
Matthew and Carol Newell, Directors of The Family Hope Center, will teach you how identify and begin stimulating the compromised areas of your child’s brain at home without medication and their side effects. With The Family Hope Center’s help, parents can actually develop the areas of the brain that are affecting their ability to learn and thrive.
