Our Families Are Back

 

Clark Hall in August – a beautiful sight in any season

Our program is a home program which means that every family member from the youngest to the oldest has a part to play. It also means that every family member also enjoys the benefits of doing the program – better health, improved fitness, increased intellectual growth and the profound satisfaction of being part of  a fighting team determined to make sure the hurt member of the family is not left behind but has a real life ahead just like everyone else.

Every six months our families return for a fresh evaluation of what they have accomplished and a new program for the new kid who has emerged. They also return to be with the staff and to be with each other. It is a time to review, renew and refuel for the program ahead.

For the last 16 months that return trip has been impossible.

No more.

Our families are fighting their way back and it has been a joyous reunion for all.

So far we have had families from 3 continents and seven countries – Canada, Ecuador, Mexico, Russia, Serbia, Venezuela and, of course, the USA.        

We have welcomed families back from eight statesCalifornia, Arizona, Texas, Michigan, Florida, Virginia, New Jersey, and Colorado.

“Thank you for evaluating our son and giving us a great plan of how to help him to achieve his potential. The plan we came home with has given me a direction of what to shoot for and a sense of his goals for each day. I no longer find myself wondering in bed late at night should I be doing more? Just simply for this I am eternally grateful. What a weight off my shoulders. Please convey our deepest thanks for everyone who has touched our lives at The Institutes.”
