Treatment Results: Children Diagnosed With Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Down Syndrome, Seizures, Developmental Delay, Hyperactivity, Learning Problems Can Get Better

WYNDMOOR, PA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2007) - "The only thing that really matters in the world of brain-injured children is results," says Janet Doman, director of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential which is a worldwide, non-profit organization headquartered in Philadelphia.

The mission of The Institutes is to help brain-injured children (those with cerebral palsy, autism, Down Syndrome, seizures, developmental delay, hyperactivity, learning problems, attention deficit disorder) to have a fighting chance to be well.

Doman emphasizes that these results were not achieved at The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential but instead were accomplished at home by mother, father and child working together.

The Institutes issues a yearly report on the results that are of the greatest importance to a brain-injured child. The 2006 report encompasses significant changes in vision, auditory, tactile, mobility, language development and manual competence.

This year the report includes children who:

--  Are able to crawl, creep, walk or run for the first time.
--  Were blind and can now see.
--  Were deaf and can now hear.
--  Understand language at least as well as a three-year-old.
--  Can talk, read or write for the first time.
--  Were completely healthy for at least 12 months.
--  Were successfully taken off sedatives, barbiturates, and
    tranquilizers.
    

The report, "Major Victories Achieved in 2006," can be obtained by calling 800-736-4663. For more information about the treatment of brain-injured children parents should contact the registrar at wtd_registar@iahp.org, and visit: www.iahp.org
