Janet Doman, the daughter of Glenn Doman, became the Director of The Institutes in 1980.
As a youngster she was lucky, at nine years, she was given the opportunity to help her parents with brain-injured children. At fourteen, she was asked to illustrate one of the first books ever published that was written and designed to be read by two and three-year-old children. This was part of The Institutes groundbreaking work in early reading. While still in high school, she documented the mobility progress of each child on The Institutes program and made a film archive. Six hundred and fifty children were filmed at every visit – it was the first such archive of its kind ever made.
Janet with her medical team and child brain developmentalists have been creating the field of child brain development and designing the unique programs and curriculum for hurt and well children ever since. Today The institutes has a 65 year legacy of hurt children who are now well and well babies who are now outstanding adults. Along the way, the programs, courses, books and materials this team has created continue to be updated, expanded and added to every year
