The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential / The Doman Method

The Programs of The Institutes are designed to help the parents of brain-injured children.

Historically, children diagnosed with autism, developmental delay, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity, learning problems, dyslexia, and a host of other symptomatic diagnoses have been considered hopeless. There are more than 300 different labels that are commonly used to describe brain-injured children.

The vast majority of these labels are not proper diagnoses, but rather they are descriptions of the symptoms of brain injury.

To be successful one must treat the brain, where the injury actually exists.

The Institutes is a group of nonprofit institutes founded by Glenn Doman in 1955. The Institutes is internationally known for its pioneering work in child brain development. The objective of The Institutes is to help all children achieve intellectual, physical, and social excellence.

The Institutes offers these programs to help the parents of brain-injured children:

  • Program One: The Home Study Program
  • Program Two: The “What to Do about your Brain-Injured Child” Program
  • Program Three: The Home Program Consultation
  • Program Four: The Lecture Series Program
  • Program Five: The Aspirant Program
  • Program Six: The Evaluation and Program Visit
  • Program Seven: The Intensive Treatment Program

The Institute's programs, especially the patterning program and masking program, are amazingly helpful to our now 8 year old son. The programs are hard work, but do deliver surprising results. The institute probably has the most comprehensive treatment to kids with special needs world wide, after all, it has been continuously progressing in this field for over 60 years. Regular visit to the institute really kept our son's positive progress. Where traditional medicine told us the our son's refusal of food intake and severe constipation is incurable, he now eats big breakfast, lunch and dinner half way to an adult's amount, and has regular bowel movements. Where traditional medicine doctors and hospitals said we would never be able to walk, we walked. Where traditional medicine said we will have to use foot orthotics for life, we can now run without them. Where traditional medicine said we will not be able to speak, we now speak like a chatter box. And our son is well on his way to independent living later in life. If your child has neurological issues, go to see the Institute for help. If traditional medicine tells you that you need to accept the faith of a special need child for life, ignore them and keep up you hope, because, based on at least our experience, and those of many other special kids' parents, they truly don't know, even refuse to know, what they don't know. The earlier you bring your child to the institute the better, because the younger a child is, the more rapid and complete recovery can he/she achieve. make no mistake. your hope and your child's progress will not come easily. It is expensive, and it is hard work. But your child will experience positive progress, and you will have hope again. A few years of hard effort early in your child's life is better than life long misery for your child and yourself. Due to my work, i have worked with several thousands of licensed medical professionals from New York to London, and have yet to discover a more effective alternative than the Institute for Human Potential, for special needs kids. Highly recommended.
