Course for Parents: A Fighting Chance for Cerebral-Palsied, Epileptic, Autistic, Developmentally Delayed, Hyperactive, Down Syndrome, Attention Deficit Disordered, Dyslexic Children

KOBE, JAPAN--(Marketwire - December 13, 2007) - What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child, a course, will be presented by The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Kobe, Japan on February 4-8, 2008.

"The Institutes have learned that when parents understand how the brain grows, they are the best teachers for their child. Cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism, developmentally delayed, hyperactive, Down syndrome, attention deficit disorder, and dyslexic are among 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 treatment program of intellectual stimulation, physical opportunity and how to create a physiologically appropriate environment.
