"Our Nation's Next Generation of Leaders Stands on the Shoulders of America's Newest Citizens," Says Director of The Institutes for The Achievement of Human Potential

Children of Parents From Around the Globe Are Excelling With Tools and Joyful Teaching Philosophy Pioneered by World-Renowned, Non-Profit Educational Organization

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - June 30, 2008) - Each morning, millions of Americans kiss their children good-bye and send them off to a day at school. Relying on educational professionals to prepare our young for a successful future has become such an integral part of our lives that most of us hardly give it a second's thought. For hundreds of thousands of other families, however, learning doesn't just begin with the first day of kindergarten, nor end when the afternoon school bell rings -- it's an ongoing, effortless and central element of child rearing. These are the parents that have chosen to create a highly effective teacher-student bond based on the effective and easy to learn teaching techniques of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (www.iahp.org).

Situated in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania countryside near Philadelphia, The Institutes is an expansive, impeccably manicured campus where parents can learn in a comfortable and welcoming setting. Founded in 1955 by distinguished early development expert Glenn Doman, the non-profit has provided invaluable instruction to parents nationally and internationally to enable their children to reach their fullest potential, physically, intellectually and socially in a joyous and sensible way.

"Our parents are motivated by one thing and one thing only -- love for their child," says Janet Doman, director of The Institutes. "They are not interested in super babies or competition. They recognize that every baby is unique and has tremendous potential. These parents want happy, capable children who will help to create a better world. We have been teaching parents how to do that for more than a half a century."

A typical example is Yuki Nakayachi, a graduate of The Institutes whose mother arrived in New York City from Tokyo. From infancy, Yuki's home was culturally rich and stimulating and his natural curiosity was encouraged at every turn. Above all else, Ms. Nakayachi wanted to ensure his development was fully realized, physically, intellectually and socially.

Ms. Nakayachi completed The Institutes' world-renowned Early Development Program and immediately implemented the recommended newborn sensory and motor opportunity programs at home. Yuki started to read as a baby and memorized hundreds of The Institute's Bit of Intelligence cards. His mother provided him with teaching in natural history, art masterpieces and a variety of cultural and academic subjects. By the time he was four, he had read over 400 books.

Today, Yuki is fluent in several languages, has worked as a Japanese translator and instructor and last year graduated from the College of William and Mary, majoring in computer science and business. Currently he is working toward his master's degree in nutrition and physiology at New York University. According to the staff at The Institutes for The Achievement of Human Potential, it's a success story that is played out too many times to count, year in and year out.

"For decades parents from all over the world have read our books and used our programs to become the best teachers their children will ever have," said Janet Doman. "Once parents discover that their babies can learn anything and everything at rates far greater than they knew, parents realize that they hold the power to shape the next generation."

"The same characteristic is present in all parents; they want the best for their children. Infants also teach us an important lesson that all babies love to learn," Ms. Doman stated. "It should be an adventure to raise a baby and at The Institutes we show parents how exciting and rewarding it can be."

How to teach your baby:

The Institutes believes that every child has, at the moment of birth, a greater potential intelligence than Leonardo da Vinci ever used.

--  You can teach a baby to learn virtually anything we teach in an
    honest, factual and joyous way.
    
--  If you teach child the facts they will intuit the rules.
    
--  The team of mother, father and baby exploring and discovering together
    the joys of human mobility is the most important athletic team the baby
    will ever be on.
    
--  Reading is not subjects like geography; it is a brain function like
    seeing and hearing.
    
--  Babies are linguistic geniuses.

UPCOMING PROGRAM

A Good Place to Start: The How To Multiply Your Baby's Intelligence Course

Date:           October 20th, 2008

Location:       The Institutes for The Achievement of Human Potential
                8801 Stenton Avenue
                Wyndmoor, PA 19038

The How To Multiply Your Baby's Intelligence course provides parents with just such an owner's manual and survival kit, and it is a lot more than that. It is a life-long philosophy of respect and love for the baby and his superb ability. When you put the best learners (babies) with the best teachers in the world (mothers and fathers), you have the most dynamic learning team in the world, and that is exciting.

FACT: Babies want to learn about anything and everything, and they want to learn right now. For the baby, learning is the highest and best form of play.

CHALLENGE: Babies do not arrive with instructions. New parents discover that becoming a mother or father is the most important job they ever undertake, yet they find themselves untrained and unprepared.

SOLUTION: Parents are the best teachers and most beloved teachers their baby will ever have. Mothers and fathers learn how to teach in a joyous and relaxed way without pressure or stress.

EXPERT INSTRUCTION

Glenn Doman, founder of The Institutes, and his staff provide expert instruction with an emphasis on ensuring that parents understand the basis and rationale of the program. They also provide the practical know-how gained from nose-to-nose experience with parents and babies over many years.
