Stories of Family Hope: ADD/ADHDTwo families whose children, one labeled ADD/OCD and the other ADD/ADHD by the medical community, tell their stories of hope after attending the 3-day Training Conference, “How to Help Your Child with Special Needs”. Please share this important documentary with families who need help for their child.

These types of diagnoses – it is estimated that there are over 200 such labels – are made in relation to an array of symptoms that professionals find when evaluating a child. These symptoms typically appear in children who are experiencing an overall delay and disorganization in reading, writing, language, social development and motor skills.
Children with such symptoms are usually hurt primarily in the cortex. This kind of injury prevents your child from receiving and processing information properly, which leads to delayed, inaccurate and inappropriate decisions. Because children with these symptoms often have mild to severe problems in the brain stem area as well, they may also have issues with their coordination and mobility.
What Can We Do For Your Child?First, the Team at The Family Hope Center performs a complete evaluation of your child to determine the precise location, nature and extent of their specific injury. The Team then develops a comprehensive treatment program that specifically targets the areas of the cortex and brain stem that are hurt or disorganized, and teach you, the parents, how to perform the program at home with your child.
The program first addresses the sensory pathways, which regulate sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing, in order to bring about the normal development of these functions. In general, treatment for these children should then target the midbrain, which houses the basal ganglia. This will increase the basic organization of the lower levels of the brain, which in turn will help the higher, cortical levels (which receive information from the lower levels) to function more effectively.
It is also still very critical that your child is given a passive and active respiration program. As mentioned before, by developing their respiration pathways, cortically disorganized children greatly mature their ability to breathe deeply and consistently. This treats the entire brain.
In conjunction with this, we provide a comprehensive metabolic program to increase the physiological and neurological function of the brain as a whole.
Next, we work together to implement the appropriate mobility programs to treat the aspects of the brain that are disorganized: infant dynamic reflexes to develop the medulla, crawling to improve the pons, creeping to help the midbrain and running for the cortex. By mastering these skills, you are helping your child mature and integrate these parts of their brain. Once they are succeeding well with these basic activities, the Team will introduce swimming, biking and high-level gymnastics.
