PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 3 The Institutes for the Achievement ofHuman Potential (IAHP) announced today that parents of special needs childrenfrom five continents will converge on The Institutes' world headquarters inWyndmoor, Pennsylvania on December 1, 2008 to attend "What To Do About YourBrain-Injured Child" -- an intensive course covering every aspect of specialneeds children from the most profoundly involved child to the child who isalmost normal but not quite.
There are hundreds of symptomatic labels used to describe special needschildren -- some include: Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Mental Retardation,Vegetative State, Down syndrome, Hyperactivity, Developmental Delay, andLearning Problems. "These labels often confuse and frighten parents becauseit's assumed these conditions are incurable," explains Director of TheInstitutes Janet Doman. "Many parents feel alone and helpless when dealingwith their child. It's a great relief for parents to understand the nature ofthe brain and learn that the brain can be treated effectively. After more thanhalf a century of search and discovery, we have learned that when parentsunderstand how the brain grows, they are the best therapists and teachers thattheir child will ever have."
The purpose of the course is to give parents the tools they need to givetheir children a fighting chance at wellness. Parents participate in more than50 hours of lectures, demonstrations, and practical instruction on the growthand development of their child. They learn how to evaluate their child'scondition, design a balanced home program comprised of intellectualstimulation and physical opportunity and they learn how to create aphysiologically appropriate environment for greatly improved health.
