Overview

In this landmark book, Glenn Doman-pioneer in the treatment of brain-injured children-brings real hope to thousands of children who have been given up for lost and sentenced to a life of institutional confinement. Glenn Doman is the founder and head of the world-famous Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, which has treated 15,000 patients in the United States and many other nations. In this valuable volume for parents and fellow professionals, Doman documents The Institutes' half-century of success with the brain-injured, citing statistics and case histories, and illustrating the basic principles of brain development with charts, diagrams, and drawings.

He explains why the old theories and techniques failed, explains The Institutes' philosophy and revolutionary treatment of the brain rather than the body, recounts his staff's worldwide research, their breakthroughs and setbacks, and their tireless efforts to refine the treatment of brain injury. He reveals their lifesaving techniques and their tools to measure-and ultimately improve-mobility, language, manual, visual, auditory, and tactile development, including unique methods of patterning, masking, and motivation, in addition to The Institutes individualized home program in which parents, and love, are the vital ingredients. All of this is so that the brain-injured child can one day live with his peers, not in an institution.

This is a must-read for any parent of a brain-injured child. It gives you real hope and very logical reasoning for all of the author's discoveries and recommendations. You get a lot of history and back-story, but that information becomes essential to your understanding of your child's brain. I wished the book provided a bigger pool of suggestions and activities, but it does give you the information you need to get started. I thought this book might be a little depressing but it is definitely not. It is so motivating, interesting, and very easy to read! Please, please read this book if you are looking for answers and believe there is something you can be doing to change your child's life. Good luck to you!

BEYOND 5 STARS. This is a most amazing book. It tells me what I need to know and do so that my 'vegtable' like grand daughter can work and develope as a normal child. She is already crawling which 'Doctors said was impossiable. See also other Glen Dorman books covering child development in other areas. He is not a 'flash by' theory but over thirty years of treatments,that work. I receive nothing for this review except the satisfaction of knowing that it might help someone else. It is very easy reading- not technical. Stephen Klassy Belton TX.
