Overview

Mothers know intuitively that the first months of life are vital to the long-term well-being of their children. In this, they are absolutely correct, say authors Glenn and Janet Doman. But mothers and fathers do not have the information they need to use these first months to their baby's best advantage, or to make the first six years of life as stimulating and rewarding as they could and should be. That's because until now, the world has had little understanding of the true potential of a newborn.

How Smart Is Your Baby? provides parents with all the information they need to help their baby achieve his or her full potential. The authors first explain the newborn's growth and development, including all ofthe critical stages involved. They then guide the parents in creating a home environment that enhances and enriches brain development. A developmental profile, which parents complete, allows Mom and Dad to track the progress oftheir child, to determine the baby's strengths, and to recognize where additional stimulation and opportunity are needed. Most important, parents learn how to design an effective and balanced daily program for physical and intellectual growth

When parents understand how their child develops, they can become the best teachers their babies will ever have. Best of all, this joyous program brings parents and babies closer together, establishing a life-long bond of learning and love.

Meet the Author

Glenn Doman received his degree in physical therapy from the University of Pennsylvania in 1940. From that point on, he began pioneering the field of child brain development. In 1955, he founded The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. By the early 1960s, 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. Doman is also the international best-selling author of six books, all part of the Gentle Revolution Series, including How To Teach Your Baby To Read, How To Give Your Baby Encyclopedic Knowledge, and How To Multiply Your Baby's Intelligence.

Janet Doman is the director of The Institutes and Glenn's daughter. She grew up at The Institutes and was actively involved with helping brain-injured children by the time she was nine years old. After completing her studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Janet devoted herself to teaching "the best parents in the world," helping them to discover the vast potential of their babies and their own potential as teachers.
