Overview

For approximately the last 25 years a form of therapy known as the "Doman-Delacato" techniques has been applied to children with disabilities. The therapy originated from the work of Glen Doman and Carl Delacato who established the Institutes of the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia. The institutes claim to be able to treat a wide range of disabilities, and their best known technique is called "patterning" and is prescribed for children who have no capacity for voluntary movement.

This book offers a detailed analysis and critique of the Doman-Delacato approach. The author draws on data from neuroanatomy and neurophysiology to challenge its theoretical assumptions. He shows that there is no sound scientific basis to the techniques, any improvements in the child's condition can be attributed to the increased energy and attention given to that child, rather tham the content of the programme. At the same time parents become emotionally ransomed and deluded by false expectations. This book should prove an important work for both parents and professionals concerned with the welfare of neurologically-handicapped children.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reviews in a critical light the Doman-Delacato system of therapy (connected with the American Academy for Human Development which has facilities in the US and in Australia, Brazil, Japan). The author asserts that the system is not based on scientifically validated principles, is overly demanding, and has no specific efficacy in causing remediation. Includes over 35 pages of references, as well as a glossary. Aimed at professionals and parents of neurologically impaired children. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
