Course for Parents: A Fighting Chance for Hurt Kids

FAUGLIA, ITALY--(Marketwire - December 7, 2007) - Parents of brain-injured children from 5 continents will attend What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child, a course presented by The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential, Europe from 27 January to 1 February, 2008 at the European headquarters of The Institutes located in the provence of Pisa, Italy.

"The Institutes have learned that when parents understand how the brain grows, they are the best teachers for their child. There are hundreds of symptomatic labels used to describe brain-injured children. These labels often confuse and frighten parents because it is assumed that these conditions are incurable. Many parents feel alone and hopeless when dealing with their brain-injured child. It is a great relief for parents to understand the nature of brain-injury and the fact that the brain can be treated. Our purpose is to give every child a fighting chance to be well," states the Director of The Institutes, Janet Doman.

This is a course in child brain development for parents of brain-injured children or family members of brain-injured adults. Parents learn how to evaluate their children and how to design a balanced home program of intellectual stimulation, physical opportunity and how to create a physiologically appropriate environment.
