Parenting Course at The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential Gives Parents the Tools to Help their Special Needs Kids Have a Fighting Chance
Date:11/3/2008

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (IAHP) announced today that parents of special needs children from five continents will converge on The Institutes' world headquarters in Wyndmoor, Pennsylvania on December 1, 2008 to attend "What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child" -- an intensive course covering every aspect of special needs children from the most profoundly involved child to the child who is almost normal but not quite.

There are hundreds of symptomatic labels used to describe special needs children -- some include: Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Mental Retardation, Vegetative State, Down syndrome, Hyperactivity, Developmental Delay, and Learning Problems. "These labels often confuse and frighten parents because it's assumed these conditions are incurable," explains Director of The Institutes Janet Doman. "Many parents feel alone and helpless when dealing with their child. It's a great relief for parents to understand the nature of the brain and learn that the brain can be treated effectively. After more than half a century of search and discovery, we have learned that when parents understand how the brain grows, they are the best therapists and teachers that their child will ever have."

The purpose of the course is to give parents the tools they need to give their children a fighting chance at wellness. Parents participate in more than 50 hours of lectures, demonstrations, and practical instruction on the growth and development of their child. They learn how to evaluate their child's condition, design a balanced home program comprised of intellectual stimulation and physical opportunity and they learn how to create a physiologically appropriate environment for greatly improved health.
