About 20 years ago, I took the How To Multiply Your Baby’s Intelligence Course at The Institutes.
My son was 6 months back then. I couldn’t believe the loving and caring environment The Institutes creates for parents and kids, as well as as the wealth of knowledge you give.My son did very well with the reading and math programs. He started school advanced in both. He excelled throughout and won a full scholarship to all the universities he applied to in our state of Florida. All through middle school and high school, he “played with his computer” and taught himself how to be an IT consultant. At age 14, I would pick him up from school and drive him to his corporate clients.
Today, he’s 21 and fully self-supporting. He assists with local community human rights abuses and drives a nice car to his clients. He now charges more than double per hour than what I make as a nurse. He’s a model son and a joy to have around.
I give credit to the early childhood program I did with him. The How To Multiply Your Baby’s Intelligence Course is so important to all parents and children everywhere. The course has meant so much to my family.
“Hammer throw is a discipline that requires extreme coordination, balance, strength, and even endurance, both mental and physical. Looking back, I am certain that without the early mental and physical training I received thanks to The Institutes’ Early Development Program and International School I would not be where I am today. The International School students are trained to be physically, socially, and intellectually excellent individuals, well balanced across all three areas.
I first began to notice the differences among my peers in my ability to manage my time, something that for any college student is invaluable, but especially for a student-athlete who was also working part-time to be debt-free upon college graduation. Not only was I better at time management, but also I was able to retain information with ease. I am able to study in one hour what takes my peers 2 or 3 hours to study; without doubt, this is thanks to my superior reading and information retention skills obtained through the intellectual program.
I honestly cannot find the words to express my infinite gratitude not only to my wonderful parents, John and Susanna, who chose the difficult path of dedication and helped both me and my brother along our respective paths through life, but also to the teachers of the Evan Thomas Institute who helped shaped me into the athlete and person I am today.”

We believe all children have a right to be intellectually, physically and socially excellent.
When parents know how the brain grows, they can create an enriched environment at home for their children.
Parents learn appropriate, safe, enjoyable and effective ways to promote the growth of the brain.

All human beings are learning throughout life. But learning is an inverse function of age. Tiny children learn at a rate that is truly astonishing, and they do so, without effort because learning is the highest form of play for a child.
Every waking moment the child is demanding information. The pressure on parents is relentless. It is easy to be overwhelmed. We give our parents the answers to feed their hungry students and to enjoy every minute.
Little children are highly intelligent but they often spend the first six years being treated as if they are not. This can create frustration and upset. When parents understand what to do, the child’s abilities grow then frustration and upsets disappear.
