How Can You be a Part of Something Life-Changing?

Ask this Mom… Why, What, When?

Why do I write, while in the fight?

I am sure many parents think, “If I just get MY kid well, and grown to independent living, then I have done my duty.” And (as we all know,) that is NO small feat.

However, this Mom is built a little differently than most… Once I discovered the answers and keys to unlock my son’s nervous system and journey to healing… I was grief stricken (nearly haunted) by the dozens of kids we had met along the way.

My son has no choice but to succeed; he has me as his mom! 🙂 And I have stopped at NOTHING to find answers about healing and the nervous system. My son has gone from “nearly catatonic” (as the doctor reminds me) to nearly doing a daily 5K, and educated above grade level. But, what about your kids?

Out of 12 kids I recall, if they stay on their current paths in 5-10 years, I am guessing:

3 kids – (1 being my son.) Will succeed in life.

2 kids – Marginalized in society.

3 kids – Institutionalized (highly likely.)

4 kids – Lucky to be alive.

Sure, none of us truly knows the future, and these may be sweeping generalizations given to different kiddos, with different diagnosis. The point is, these are REAL children, with REAL challenges (I see their faces, and know their names) given their current paths: this is highly likely.

I want to tell parents what I know. What’s safe, what’s smart, what’s sensible, WHAT WORKS!!  My approach is done at home, and saves your family thousands of dollars a month in appointments!!

Just ONE of these effective techniques is making a difference for the patients of Dr. Moreno:  “Rebreathing has been the simplest, most dramatic health optimizing modality I have explored in over 30 years .”  And THIS MOM not only introduced it to him, but told him how to implement!


What’s happening now?

This Blog, Helping Hurt Kids is undergoing transformation (aren’t we all.) Between Now and April 10, 2015 Dawn is accepting applications to work independently with you and your family, for FREE! This WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY may not come around again (at least not for free.)

Window of opportunity

Once your application is accepted, we will work together to customize a home program just for you and your kiddo. Your personalized home program may include ONE or ALL areas (depending on your needs…)



We have paid for this ad-free blog space until April 10… You have between now and April 10 to file an application with

Your success stories, and lessons and anecdotes may be included in Dawn’s book, which is currently being written. (Names changes, of course for privacy.)

Many have encouraged us: Keep writing!  And we will. Given the limits of time (as we are daily running our own son’s successful program.) Any writing efforts need to go into compiling a book, and working with a select few families in the process.

I will happily answer any questions:

Be a part of something life-changing, for YOUR kid, today.

God Bless!

Ready to Move?

As I type this title, I realize just how many expressions can have multiple meanings.  Is

my intention here to encourage ya’ll to lace up your shoes, and head out the door?  Do I want celebrate that Tee and his mom (me) are now daily training for a 5k?  Or am I say this blog is moving addresses?

Yes! To all 3.  While Helping Hurt Kids seemed like a great little title… it has been pointed out to me, that with one little modifier, it potentially takes on the opposite meaning.  Aiding to injury a child, is never ever what I am about.

So, HHK will be moving addresses in the future.  We are liking “The Segawa Method”

Thanks & love to my faithful readers and friends.

7 Intentional Messages.


What are the 7 intentional messages for this blog?

1. It Is Possible.

2. Trust your own intuition as parents more (much, much more) than any so-called expert, therapist, or system (no matter what their credentials, or level of education.)  You, the parents, were entrusted with this child to raise them and to do good by them.  So, trust yourself.

3.  Keep Going.  Like flying a plane, course correct when and where you need; but do NOT give up on finding your child’s true potential.  Do not grow weary in doing good.  A life is at stake here, a child’s life and future is on the line.  Find the stamina to persist.

4.  Aim High.  Your child is UNBELIEVABLY smarter than anyone will venture to guess.  Don’t be fooled by fools who speak V-E-R-Y  S-L-O-W-L-Y and V-E-R-Y  L-O-U-D-L-Y  to your kiddo.  The child’s ability to express their intelligence may be hampered.  Always remember the true intelligence of the child is high; very high!

5.  Check for breathing.                      Check for breathing.                         Check for breathing.                     Check for breathing.

-How deep?  How shallow?  Do you audibly hear them breathing, ever?  Do you see them yawn?  Do they still have periodic breathing?  (A breathing rhythm which slows and stops up to 5 or 10 seconds, and then restarts. – Normal, up to 4 months of age.)

-Do they have low body weight and low “appetite”?  This is likely breathing related (oxygen/CO2 balance)  OR sensory…  Either way, check for breathing first!

-There are 3 Neurological states directly related to breathing:  Freeze (Deer in the headlights,) Fight or Flight (gulp and hold air,) and Rapid Pant (right after you have just run from a bear.)  …I could write dozens of blog entries on breathing alone.  It is SO important!

6.  How to Problem Solve.  Albert Einstein said something like…  If you try and solve a problem at the same level as it presents itself, you get nowhere.  But, if you approach it from another level, you’ll find solution.

-Example #1:  Earlier I said, a food or appetite issue is most often breathing, OR sensory.  I did NOT say, give the kiddo “feeding therapy.”  The brain will always prioritize the need for oxygen over food.  It is simply how we are ingeniously built.

(By the way, “picky eaters” may also be experiencing allergic sensitivities, which is an issue at the level of electricity.  And then the cure is IBK –  Immune Boosting Kinesiology.  Something I teach parents to do for their own families, at home.)

-Note:  None of the true solutions for food and “appetite” problems were found at the level of food.

Unified 1

-Example #2:  A child is having difficulty with human interaction (Connection, Meaning and Purpose,) this could be because the child has not yet finished practicing (or fully integrated) their Moro or other Reflexes.  So, practicing the Reflex Power Move called “Splat” or “Starfish” is what they need to finish practicing, and “mature” their ability to connect with others.  Simple to do, 10 min. twice a day, and this deeply affects the nervous system!!

-Also possible, if a child is stuck in Fight or Flight mode (eyes darting, breath holding, not long enough exhales, hyperactive…)  then the solution for connection is actually at the level of breathing and oxygen/CO2 Balance.

-This system of problem solving and evaluation is called Unified Healing.  Thank you to my son’s journey, and the good Lord for giving me the keys.

7.  When you just don’t know what to do?  Take a deep breath, look up to the heavens, and ask for Guidance.  Of all the prayers, wishes and hopes I have asked for along the journey, the one most readily answered has been that of Guidance.  “Lead me and guide me, next step, 1st step, 1 day at a time…”  Ask, trust, listen, pray, be open.  Guidance you will find.

Inspiration, Where You Find It.

I recently purchased a book for training a skill that we were (let’s say) stuck on.  Its subtitle was “Proven Secrets of the – Pro.”  The book was informative, broken down into steps, and especially focused on FUN, FUN, FUN…  that was at least for the “typical” kids.  The mere 2 pages, devoted to “special needs” literally started off with It’s necessary, NOT FUN… Be careful, Be sure to Record, Record…   Uuughhh!  Boring.  This was the opposite tone, approach and attitude of the rest of the book.

The true gems, however came from the little quotes sprinkled throughout.  So, I say find inspiration where ever you can in life, and let the rest fall away.  (My personal favorites are the last 3.)  Enjoy!

All kids need is a little help, a little hope, and somebody who believes in them.  -Earvin “Magic” Johnson

Children have more need of models than of critics.  -Carolyn Coats

We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.  -Stacia Tauscher

Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.  -Victor Borge

You can’t make a child do better by making her feel worse.  -Someone’s Grandma

Correction does much, but encouragement does more.  -Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

You can learn many things from children.  How much patience you have, for instance.  -Franklin P. Adams

The key to everything is patience.  You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.  -Arnold H. Glasgow

Low-achieving kids learn new behaviors better and faster when their parents offer them the appropriate amount of guidance and encourage them in a positive way.  (What they) need most is for parents to help them build confidence in their abilities.  -Researchers at the University of Illinois

In raising my children, I have lost my mind but found my soul.  -Lisa T. Shepherd

If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let him step to the music that he hears, however measured or far away.  -Henry David Thoreau

Children are likely to live up to what you believe of them.  -Lady Bird Johnson
