Glenn Doman is the founder and head of the world-famous Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, which today treats over 2,500 patients in the United States and many other nations. In this volume for parents and fellow professionals, Doman documents The Institutes' 25 years success with the brain-damaged, citing statistics and case histories. He explains why the old theories and techniques failed, explains The Institute's philosophy and revolutionary treatment of the brain rather than the body. He reveals his staff's life-saving techniques and their tools to measure - and ultimately improve - motor, language, visual, auditory and tactile development, including unique methods of patterning, masking and motivation. In addition to The Institutes' individualized out-patient programme 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.
