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' 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 Yor Baby To Read, How To Teach Your Baby Math, and How To Give Your Baby Encyclopedic Knowledge.

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.

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

    I am about to use this with 2nd generation

    Years ago I used this method with my daughter. We never completed the whole program. She had a 3rd grade reading level when she started Kindergarden and finished high school at age 14. She is very bright, happy and successful. I now have a baby grandaughter and will also use this program to teach her. What I remember the most about teaching my daughter was the quality time we spent together which was priceless and to me the most important aspect of this program.

    Turely inspiring

    I read most of Dr. Doman's book and tried the paper flash cards with my then two-month-old daughter with great response. To solve the problem of too much paper, I wrote software named PowerFlashCard to do the same thing. My whole family was amazed to see the little baby waving, kicking and screaming with joy in front of the laptop. Our initial doubt of the method was gone. Try it, you would not belive it until you did it.

    Best book I read, and truly inspiring

    I read most Dr. Doman¿s books after my daughter was born. I was already determined to do something with my newborn, his books definitely strengthened my believe, and gave methods to follow. I made dot cards and word cards. It was time consuming and expensive. Soon I developed software to replace paper flash cards. It was very effective. I added much more contents in math, reading, including foreign languages, and pictures into the program. There are people thinking I was crazy teaching a 3-month old. But you have to do it yourself to believe it. The time I put my daughter in front of the laptop, and she saw the flashing dots, she was waving, kicking, and screaming with joy. My whole family was amazed. My daughter is almost a year old now. She is very delightful, alert. She can point correctly to many objects, and words. Her learning speed is increasing daily. If you¿d like to try my software, it is at www.geocities.com/powerflashcard.

    It really works!

    I taught five of my children to read using this book, at ages 3 1/2 - 4 1/2. They've all done extremely well in school - because they knew how to read well before they got there. I starting using this book about 1980! Schools have tried many things since then, but this method worked for all my kids!
