We've been recognized and featured by some of the biggest media organizations in the world.


It is clearly the result of decades of research and practical work by Glenn Doman and the Institutes Staff with thousands of children from all over the world and their parents.

It is impressive the results we’ve had with our two daughters not only in terms of their skills, but most notably in their joyfulness, awareness, consciousness, ability to relate with others and perform many tasks that are not linearly linked to the program we are doing with them. But clearly what I am most thankful for, is the closeness in how I experience my relationship with my girls and my wife.”

Parent F.A.Q's

Little children love to learn and parents are their very best teachers. Parents naturally adore their children and want their child to have a life of accomplishment and fulfillment. But most parents do not have the tools they need to create an environment that provides the stimulation and opportunity that are appropriate and effective to help their baby to learn at home and become capable and confident. These tools are simple and available to anyone who can read a book or attend a course.

The Newborn Course is designed for expectant parents, and parents with babies younger than 12 months.  It details each stage of a baby’s development, providing vital information about the appropriate stimulation of the sensory pathways and gives effective opportunity for the development of mobility, language development and manual competence.  This creates a life-long relationship of love and respect.

Our Newborn courses are now online, and available to parents worldwide.

Yes, it is necessary to be on camera during the entire presentation of the Newborn Course.  Please position yourself so that you are fully visible with good lighting so we can see you well.  It is also  important to make certain you are isolated from the noise and traffic of your household.

No, it is not necessary for your baby to be on camera.  Quite the opposite.  Make certain you are isolated from the noise and traffic of your household.

Absolutely!  The Newborn Course if for you.  It is designed for expectant parents and parents with babies younger than 12 months.

Absolutely!  The Newborn Course if for you.  It is designed for expectant parents and parents with babies 12 months and younger.

The Newborn Course is designed for expectant parents and parents with babies younger than 12 months.  However, we do have another course available for parents of babies over 12 months – How To Multiply Your Baby’s Intelligence.

We highly recommend that you read How Smart Is Your Baby? as soon as possible. You will gain invaluable insights into your child and be able to start to change his environment for the better at home. The more you know the more you will want to attend our course, and the deeper your understanding will be once you do attend.

That said, the Newborn Course is the most effective way to understand the big picture, get to know the staff, and start on a really successful program.

Newborn Development

The first year of life is vital to the well-being of the baby. Although learning continues throughout life, there is a special window of opportunity for brain growth and learning that occurs in the first twelve months of life. 

We now know that intellectual development starts at birth, if not earlier. This means that effective sensory stimulation is essential for the baby. We also know that mobility development starts in utero and must be permitted to continue from the instant of birth onward.

Anything that physically stops or restricts the baby for any significant time decreases the precious opportunity to move.

Appropriate intellectual stimulation and mobility opportunity are the basis for language and manual development. All babies have a right to move and explore. Babies are born moving, but too often the modern baby is bundled up, put upside down on his back, put in a baby seat or a backpack, and has no opportunity to crawl. This teaches the baby that movement is impossible.

Our parents learn how to start right at birth to create a great mobility environment so that the baby is crawling in no time, then creeping, and cruising the household to explore and discover.

Parents learn how to evaluate their baby through The Institutes Developmental Profile. This gives each parent a clear picture of where the baby’s development is on track and where it needs more stimulation and opportunity. This program gives a detailed map of the first twelve months and carefully guides mother and father through each stage. Parents quickly see that development should not occur by accident but rather on purpose with a clear plan that works.

Much More Than Expected
"This course was so much more than I was expecting in the best way possible. After my nieces went through this program, I had a basic understanding of what it could accomplish. But taking this course made me realize how much more there is and how much the baby can accomplish and benefit so early."

The Genius Of Children
"I wish that everyone could recognize the genius of children. It is so reassuring to know that there are answers/resources for parents."

Are You Ready?

The Newborn course focuses on teaching parents how to evaluate their baby’s progress and how to strengthen areas may be slow and enhance areas that are developing faster

Parents learn how to communicate with their baby and build a stronger bond right from birth. This knowledge creates a better quality of life for the baby and for mother and father. 

The goal is for our parents to be confident that they can create a happy, safe, supportive, and enriched environment for their baby at home.
