These are the most common labels for brain injured children:

Cerebral Palsy
Developmental Delay
Traumatic Brain Injury
Trisomy 21 (Down Syndrome)
Attention Deficit Disorder
Mentally retarded
Learning Problems
Special Needs
Other Symptomatic Labels

Historically, children diagnosed with autism, developmental delay, cerebral palsy, Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome), attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity, learning problems, dyslexia and a host of other symptomatic diagnoses have been considered hopeless.

There are more than 300 different labels that are commonly used to describe brain-injured children.

The vast majority of these labels are not proper diagnoses, but rather they are descriptions of the symptoms of brain injured children.

What is Brain Injury?

When the brain is injured, the child will either have a problem with the incoming sensory pathways or the outgoing motor pathways or both. When a child cannot see, hear or feel properly, he cannot respond to the world around him appropriately. This may be a severe problem, as it is with the child who is functionally blind, deaf, insensate, paralyzed and speechless.

This may be a moderate problem, as it is with a child who can not use both eyes together properly, lacks the fine tuning to handle the common sounds in the environment, or is too sensitive or not sensitive enough to touch and may not yet be able to move or talk or use his hands at age level.

This may be a mild problem, as it is with a child who cannot read, write or do math at age level and who may lack the balance, coordination, language and manual competence of his peers.

Misconceptions About the Brain:

For too long brain growth was thought to be a static and irrevocable fact. Instead brain growth and development are a dynamic and ever-changing process.

This is a process that can be stopped, as it is in profound brain injury. This is a process that can be slowed, as it is in moderate brain injury but most significantly this is a process that can be speeded up.

All that we do to speed the process is to provide visual, auditory and tactile stimulation with increased frequency, intensity and duration in recognition of the orderly way in which the human brain grows. We then arrange for the child to have the maximum opportunity in an ideal environment to use and develop the motor pathways.

For more than a half-century, the heart of The Institutes program has been based upon the fact that the brain grows by use. Scientists now recognize the plasticity of the human brain and new research in neuroplasticity confirms that the brain is incredibly capable of recovery and rehabilitation. The old notion that once the brain is injured there is no means of recovery has been discarded.

This event is an intensive course for parents conducted at The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential.

It consists of more than fifty hours of lectures, demonstrations and practical teaching concerning child brain development in the brain injured child.

Objective: The objective of the brain injured child program is to teach parents about the growth and development of the brain so that they have the tools they need to put their child firmly on a pathway to improvement as quickly as possible.

The course consists of lectures, demonstrations and opportunities to practice techniques and covers the following subjects:
