Glenn Doman is the founder of the Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, to which parents from every continent have found their way for more than half a century. He and the Institutes are famous for their pioneering work with brain-injured children and for the early development of healthy ones.
In addition to having been in a very close relationship with more than twenty thousand families over the past fifty years, he has also greatly influenced millions of others with the book “What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child”, and with the creation of the ground-breaking “Gentle Revolution” series of books and materials that teach parents how to prepare their children at home.
Glenn Doman lived, studied or worked with children in more than one hundred nations, from the most primitive to the most civilized.
He was honored for outstanding heroism in action during the Second World War and was awarded the Order of Chivalry by the Brazilian government in 1966 for his work on behalf of children around the world.
Glenn Doman was the main speaker in the many courses offered by the Institutes for parents of healthy children and those with cerebral palsy. When not teaching at Philadelphia or around the world, he worked personally with parents and children to discover the best ways to heal sick children and ways to make healthy ones better. He passed away in 2013 at age 93.
