Blindness, Deafness or Lack of Sensation
Please visit “An Introduction to Your Child’s Brain” before proceeding
Children who are blind, deaf or insensate due to a brain lesion or similar neurological injury, do have hope of becoming well – if the treatment is properly directed, and properly carried out. Often these children have stimulation programs that do not target the hurt areas of the brain, On top of this, if they are being stimulated to gain vision from blindness, or hearing from deafness, the frequency, intensity and duration of the treatments are often not substantial enough to yield significant improvement. Consequently these children and parents are usually taught to adjust, cope and otherwise adapt to their injuries.
What Can We Do For Your Child?
A properly designed program for these children first and foremost addresses the sensory pathways, which regulate sight, smell, touch, taste and hearing in a very intensive manner, in order to bring about the normal development of these functions.
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 at The Family Hope Center performs a complete evaluation of your child to determine the precise location, nature and extent of their specific injury. A comprehensive treatment program heavily weighed towards a sensory integration program, is then developed by the Team. Together, we then implement a passive respiratory program, a sophisticated nutritional program, and a reflex integration and balance development program. As your child begins to gain neurological and physiological stability, we modify the program to reflect the change in their development.

What are Blindness, Deafness or Insensate?
Children who are blind, deaf or insensate due to a brain lesion, profound lack of oxygen at birth or other neurological trauma have the potential to improve… More Blindness Deafness or Insensate definition >
|Brain impairments associated with Blindness, Deafness or Insensate
Children who present with such symptoms are usually injured in both the brain stem (medulla, pons and midbrain) and the cortex. These often-pervasive injuries prevent the child from receiving and processing sensory information properly, which in turn impairs basic seeing, hearing, feeling, smelling and tasting.
