The label “Cerebral Palsy” is often used to describe several different movement disorders that manifest in early childhood. Although many medical authorities offer dire prognosis’ for children with these conditions, we offer said children a path to wellness. We do so by properly diagnosing the problem and prescribing a program carefully crafted to encourage brain growth and development.
Old-fashioned labels like “cerebral palsy” are not found in the literature of The Institutes, but rather the term “brain-injured.” This refers to the entire spectrum of brain injury from profound coma, paralysis, blindness, and deafness to mild learning problems and every kind and degree of brain injury in between.
Recovering from Cerebral Palsy
A proper diagnosis describes where the injury exists in the brain, the degree of the injury to the brain, and the extent of the injury to the brain. To be successful one must treat the brain, where the injury actually exists. The Institutes offers a program of neurological organization that parents carry out at home.

An MRI done on Blanca’s first day of life showed a massive brain edema. She was kept in the hospital for 12 days. Blanca returned home but had no significant development.
The “What to Do About Your Brain-Injured Child” course put her on the track to wellness.
“It is incredibly difficult when your child’s eyes don’t work, when he can’t look at you...These things DO NOT improve when you wait and see. They do not improve when you don’t work at it every single day. Your child has only you, you must step up and do everything possible”
