Our children range from paralyzed, speechless, blind, deaf, or even comatose, to children who may only have mild learning problems and all the other children in between. When brain-injured children come to us, they have often been almost everywhere. Although they have had many assessments they seldom arrive here with a real diagnosis. Instead, the child has been given symptomatic labels. These labels do not offer anything but confusion, fear and almost always a very poor prognosis. Our parents arrive overwhelmed confused and feeling hopeless. The Institutes offers a clear path forward: our programs are designed to give parents the toolset, skills, and confidence they will need to guide their children’s growth and development.
Our staff develops a close relationship with each family. We focus on results. We achieve those results with the following three key offerings:
Children seldom arrive here with a real diagnosis. Instead, they have been given simple labels and a poor prognosis. After a careful evaluation, our children get an accurate diagnosis that states the area of the brain involved, the degree of injury and the extent of injury to brain.
Some medications have a suppressive effect on the central nervous system. A sedated child is not a healthy child. We use a program of stimulation and opportunity, not medications, to help the injured brain to mature and function more normally.
Each child is unique and requires a program designed for their neurological condition and physiology. Each time we see a child, we design a new program based on evaluation of that child. Our clinical team works to create a treatment program that is ideal for each child.
As a baby, Krishna was diagnosed as having a developmental and speech delay. After three years on the Intensive Treatment Program, Krishna is no longer overly sensitive to sound or touch, and is above his age level in physical stamina.
Sean was diagnosed as autistic and as having a “non-verbal learning disorder.” When Sean was 11 years old, his parents first learned about the work of The Institutes.
Hana was born 72 days prematurely. At first, she did not have any problems, but after a month, her ultrasound showed abnormalities. But her story didn’t end there.
The single most important preparation for a parent who attends one of our courses for hurt children is to read this book. In it, our founder Glenn Doman covers the fundamentals of injured-brain development, and what can be done to set a child on a course to recovery.
Parents are profoundly changed by this course. Mystery about their child is replaced by appreciation, despair by hope and, best of all, they have a real plan for the future.
Develop an actionable plan to improve your child’s condition and well-being
A unique opportunity for parents to learn what they need to know—what to do (and what not to do) in six areas critical to hurt children.
After parents have experienced the incredible growth that can be achieved through What to Do About Your Brain-Injured Child (both the course and the book), many wish to have an appointment for their child to be evaluated by the staff, and to receive on-going help and support. At each visit to The Institutes parents attend new lectures where they continue to learn about brain growth and development. They get to know the staff and other parents who have hurt children. It is this community of parents and staff that keeps our families inspired and strong. No matter what challenges they may face, they know they are not alone any more. The bonds that are forged with parents and staff are a life-long support for the family.
