Family Hope Center Therapy: A Year Later


I know I haven’t written here in months, and I know this will be a fast post. However, some people have wondered what’s happened with Dr. J’s therapy since I went to training at the Family Hope Center last summer. See my son's results a year after my Family Hope Center training! via I just completed a re-evaluation to see where he falls. At first I was very depressed because he came out as an infant. HUH?

After trying not to cry, I figured I did something wrong in the calculating. I tore through my notes, and lo! I had! Now, here’s reality.

The only thing I’ve done since the training is the therapy laps (creeping and crawling) and a few nutrition tweaks. I did not do any of the sensory therapy. I didn’t even reach the full number of laps. I was trying to have both boys do laps and some days it’s really frustrating to keep on top of that in a one-bedroom apartment with squirrely boys!

So, imagine my surprise when…

Dr. J has gained 17% brain function. He gained 13.5 months in neurological age ABOVE the 12 that he aged! (He gained 25.5 months total.) I am very excited.

So, if you’re curious about Family Hope Center, all I can say is look at his numbers on the partial program. That’s all, folks!

  1. Wonderful Report and your boys are blessed to have Mom researching,training and learning and giving so much of your time and are awesome Jenny!


  3. I inadvertently discovered your blog a while back after you had gone to Family Hope Center’s training. I had come the first night of that training and shared my son, Torin’s story of healing after doing FHC program. I just wanted you to know that I have thought of and prayed for you and your family since that time. I am so VERY HAPPY for the progress you have seen in your son!! I understand what it is to do creeping and crawling, etc. day in and day out, and I know it takes a measure of faith to believe that all these small things will actually add up to something meaningful. I just want to encourage you to keep doing what you’re doing and keep giving updates! The stories we tell each other are powerful and stories of Healing are themselves Healing to those of us listening.

  4. Thank you so much for updating. I have been following your posts and this is so encouraging to hear as I try to stumble my way through the program just using their home curriculum. We are not yet at full laps with my four children and was feeling very discouraged that it couldn’t possibly help if we don’t get the full amount in. So thank you for encouraging me to keep persevering even if it isn’t perfect!

  6. Thank you for your posts on the FHC. I am wondering how you have been doing with the program the last few months and if you’ve seen a marked difference in your boys. My son is dealing with auditory processing, visual processing, and attention issues. It has been affecting him socially and he has a hard time making and maintaining friends in school. Do you think this program could help him? Feel free to email me if you would like. It has been sad to see him struggle to make friends in first grade.

  7. Hi, Michelle. I do think this program could help him. As you can see from this post, I haven’t done the complete program and I’ve still seen improvement. I understand your sadness. You might want to read through some of my other special needs/autism posts (not saying he has autism) to know you’re not alone.
