5.0 von 5 Sternen I have done the "patterning" described in this book!!, 11. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: What to Do about Your (Taschenbuch)
Most parents of children with brain injuries would do ANYTHING to help their child! I was no different -- especially after having medical specialists tell me there is nothing they could do.
The concepts in this book made a lot of sense to me. Although they take a lot of time and effort, they cost NOTHING in the way of medicine or equipment. So, I convinced my husband and family to give it a try.
After one month of patterning, our son (with Static Encephalopathy, cerebral palsy, and cortical blindness) began crawling. After six months of patterning, our son would pull himself to a stand. After a year of patterning, he began walking with a walker (with help). It has been two years now since we began patterning and he walks independently with a walker; we expect he won't need the walker at all by June. Not only that, but after 9 months of patterning, the Ophthamologist announced he miraculously had normal vision!
Do miracles happen? Certainly. Could our son have progressed this well without patterning? Maybe. But you know what? I wouldn't want to risk NOT TRYING it! I have personally bought this book for many people I've met because I see it as THAT important.
Our son is now 4.5 years old. He has no seizures, nor does he take any medications. His doctors and therapists cannot believe his progress. I wish I was still on speaking terms with the doctor who suggested I institutionalize him and "get on with my life"!
Give it a try! I cannot hurt!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I have seen it work first-hand, 4. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: What to Do about Your (Taschenbuch)
I attended the school at the Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential between 1981 and 1984. Though I was not brain injured, I did have a learning disability that the staff of the Institute did help to "cure." I also spent much of my time in the clinic, along with the rest of the children in my class, helping the staff pattern and entertaining the hurt kids. Over the years I witnessed incredible things--children who had previously been uanable to sit upright were now crawling, identifying words and connecting with those around them on a meaningful level. Glenn Doman does not offer a miracle cure-all,and sometimes all he can do is offer the parents a kind word and an attentive ear; but for all of those parents who are now able to see their children succeed far beyond the expectations of doctors and specialists around the world, Doman offers something to the parents of brain injured children that is in short supply: Hope.
P.S. It is interesting to note that when I was younger, I had always just taken it for granted that the Institutes was a good thing. They helped kids--no question about it. It was not until recently that I heard about the controversy surrounding Glenn's ideas and I have to ask: if it doesn't hurt the child, it includes them in their surroundings, and makes them aware of their environment--what's the controversy over?

1.0 von 5 Sternen Exploitative pseudo-science, 19. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: What to Do about Your (Taschenbuch)
Essentially a book-length advertisement for Doman's "patterning" therapy, which needless to say omits to mention that the vast majority of scientific studies have shown it to be entirely useless, with the result that it has been condemned by reputable medical organizations, including the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The book itself is repellently manipulative in style, painting a picture of Doman and his associates as the only people who care about or are interested in helping disabled children. Doman is presented as the only person who really respects parents and is willing to talk honestly to them and teach them how to "cure" their children, unlike other professionals who are cold, arrogant, and uncaring (agreeing with the accuracy of the latter description, alas, does not guarantee the truth of the former). He uses a "folksy" style, in which dubious conclusions are presented as homely truths, and in which a long-discredited theory of human development (that children "need" to go through the stages of crawling, creeping and walking in a particular way for normal neurological development to take place) is presented as state-of-the-art science.
If you are considering Doman's therapies, at least read "No Time For Jello" by Berneen Bratt as well - this first-hand account of her intial passionate faith in and painful disillusionment with "patterning" for her disabled son, plus an excellent summary of the scientific research on patterning to date, might at least cause some people to think twice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If you have a brain injured child--YOU MUST READ., 11. Januar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: What to Do about Your (Taschenbuch)
I have read the book twice, and have attended the "What to do about your Brain Injured Child" course at "The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential" in Philadelphia. For people with a brain injured child, there is no more important book. Through a story line of dogmatic research, Doman presents in a logical manner how the brain grows by use. A simple concept, but dramatic improvements result when applied to those who need it most -- the brain injured child. The Developmental Profile outlined in the book is a God send to parents who wonder "what exactly is wrong with my child, " and "what can I do to fix the problem?"

Yes, I (we) have a brain injured child, and this book has provided direction, hope, and through hard work, tangible results that will be of lifelong benefit for our lovely daughter. Is there a rating higher than 10?

I would be happy to answer any questions about this book or the Institutes in general.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book should be viewed as one of the great books., 10. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: What to Do about Your (Taschenbuch)
For parents of hurt ("handicapped," "cerebral palsied," "mentally retarded," "autistic," "downs," etc., etc.) kids, this book is a MUST READ. After hearing nothing but "let's wait and see" for the first months of my son's life, and being faced with the prospect of a lifelong use of potentially toxic drugs for seizures, spasticity, etc. and ghastly surgeries to relieve the symptoms of brain injury, I found this book. I devoured it. It offered a real way for any parent of a brain injured child to help his/her child.
After reading it twice, I then attended the workshop in Philadelphia. The information presented in the book and at the workshop is tremendous both in quantity and quality.
The book is the first step in forming a battle plan to help your child. Every parent of a brain injured child needs to read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Provoked a change in my outlook on my handicapped child, 26. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: What to Do about Your (Taschenbuch)
Before I read this book I'd been starting to feel as if there were not much long-term hope for my severely-handicapped child. As I continued to read I became more and more excited about the possibility of some life changing answers for my daughter. I rate the book with a 9 for the reason that I have not tried the tecniques described and am allowing for
a margin of error. So much of what the author has written about makes common sense (as opposed to what the medical community tells me) that I have to hope for the sake of my child. I do have to give him credit for being on the parents side though - Thank you Mr. Doman

"What To Do About Your Brain-Injured Child" is one of the greatest books written in the twentieth century. The writer, Glenn J. Doman, has come out with incredible breakthroughs which no one has come up with in the history of mankind. This book has saved lives and by doing so: humanity. This book has become a bible for parents of brain-injured children. Glenn Doman, through his books and his work, has truly helped in saving the world.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You CAN help your brain-injured child!, 3. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: What to Do about Your (Taschenbuch)
All of the other positive reviews on this page are 100% correct. The Institutes staff have been teaching parents of brain-injured children how to make those children well for 45 years. They, and the parents they have taught, already know what the rest of the world is just beginning to suspect: brain development is NOT static. It is an ever-changing process which can be stopped (as it is by traumatic head injury), slowed (as it is by mild head injury or lack of oxygen), but most importantly, can be SPEEDED. The brain-injured child's chief enemy is time. Don't waste any more of it -- read this book! At the very least, you will never look at your child in the same way again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "Do You Want To Make Your Child Whole?", 18. Januar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: What to Do about Your (Taschenbuch)
Before you do anything else; read this book! You will not find another like it on the face of the earth; unless it is linked to The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential. I'll wager that none of your child's doctors or disability representatives told you anything about The Institutes. I found out about them purely by divine accident. At age 2 1/2, I began some of their "Multiplying Your Baby's Intelligence," methods at home, and my son was reading by age 3 1/2; and his memory and focus have improved dramatically. We will be going to The Institutes later this year, and applying all of their suggested methods for our brain-injured son upon returning home. I will update this review in the future, to tell you how the methods worked out. I believe Glenn Doman and Temple Fay were inspired men who began their years of research with nothing more than a sincere desire to help hurt children become well. What they discovered is you CAN increase brain cell growth; and you CAN create new pathways around the injured area(s) of the brain. Come on, 100,000 hurt children can't be wrong! Yes, it requires a leap of faith; but I already endorse this book and all of their programs. Perhaps that's the first step to making our hurt kids well---by first believing that anything is possible!
