In 1955, he founded The Institutes' world-renowned work with brain-injured children had led to vital discoveries regarding the growth and development of well children. The author has lived with, studied, and worked with children in more than one hundred nations, ranging from the most civilized to the most primitive.

Douglas Doman is Vice President of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential and the son of founder Glenn Doman. His early years working at The Institutes were spent establishing the School for Human Development for brain-injured young adults. He worked closely with Bruce Hagy to create the world’s first Human Development Course, a circuit of physical activities that promote neurological organization and development.

Bruce Hagy is the former director of The Institutes for the Achievement of Physical Excellence. He joined The Institutes' staff in 1974, and his background in health and physical education quickly led him to become involved with the physical challenges posed by both well and hurt children.
