How to Help Down Syndrome and Other Special Needs Children - Free Booklet and Parenting Course Available This Month From The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential
Date:9/12/2008

WYNDMOOR, Pa., Sept. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Since Vice President hopeful Governor Sarah Palin appeared on national television last week with Trig, her baby diagnosed with Down syndrome, a new light has been shone on these children. This is good news for the children, their parents, and the professionals who have championed their cause for many years.

Children diagnosed with Down syndrome often have slower development in mobility, language, and manual competence, but are commonly treated as if they are unintelligent, incapable, and hopeless. The parents of these children are often told to warehouse their children and forget them.

For half a century The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (http://www.iahp.org) has been teaching parents of Down syndrome children and providing them with the tools they need to help their children become intellectually, physically, and socially excellent. "Each and every one of these children deserves a fighting chance to be well and enjoy a full and rich life," states Glenn Doman, founder of The Institutes and author of the groundbreaking book What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child. Recently The Institutes published The Pathway to Wellness, which provides parents with 240 vital points to create an enriched environment at home.

This month The Institutes is offering the course What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child, to be held September 22-26 in Philadelphia. Parents learn how to evaluate their child, how to design a balanced home program of intellectual stimulation and physical opportunity, and how to improve their child's health and well-being through better nutrition and an improved environment.

A recent graduate of the course wrote, "I learned that there is help for my child. This course has been such a blessing because teachers, doctors, and parents of other children with Down syndrome didn't believe this to be possible."
