“For every human being with learning challenges, the opportunity to succeed in life”


“We work with our community to raise awareness of the inherent potential of individuals with learning challenges”

We do this work by presenting compelling programming at varied educational institutions in the Chicago area. Our programs feature presentations by scholars in the fields of neuroscience, psychology, education, and the arts, highlighting individuals who have exhibited extraordinary talents and abilities, redefining the perception of their own physical and learning challenges.


At FHP, we wish to foster a deeper understanding of the inherent potential for learning in every individual, regardless of their personal learning challenges; to influence our youth to become advocates for those with learning differences; to present information related to brain function and its capabilities, social-emotional learning, and creativity; to influence new ways of thinking about human potential which may cultivate attitudes of compassion among the community, towards those with differences in learning.
