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.
