In this updated classic, Glenn Doman, founder of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential and pioneer in the treatment of the brain-injured children, brings real hope to thousands of children who have been sentenced to a life of institutional confiement. Based upon a half-century of successful work performed at The Institutes, this book explains why old theories and techniques fail, and why the philosophy and revolutionary treatment of The Institutes succeed. In What To Do About Your Brain-injured Child, Doman recounts the story of The Institutes' worldwide research, setbacks as well as history-making breakthroughs, during its tireless effort to refine treatment of the brain injured. He shares the staff's lifesaving techniques and the tools used to measure (and utimately improve) visual, auditory, tactile, mobile, and manual development. Doman explains the unique methods of treatment that are constantly being improved and expanded, and then describes the program with which parents are able to treat their own children at home in a familiary and loving environment. Included throughout are case histories, drawings, and helpful charts and diagrams. Twenty thousand families from over one hundred nations have brought their children to The Institutes. The great majority of these children have done better than their parents had hoped based on prior experience with conventional methods. For each of these families, this book was the starting point.

This is a comprehensive, must-have reference that provides parents with the support and information they need to help their child recover from a closed-head injury and prevent further incidents. Coping with traumatic brain injury (TBI) involves a complex process of readjustment to the changes in a once healthy child and affects everyone in the family. Traumatic brain injury occurs when the brain abruptly and violently moves within the skull as a result of extreme force to the head during an automobile, biking, or playground accident, for example. The effects of TBI can range from mild to severe and recovery can take from weeks to years. Although each child's condition is unique, all TBI patients experience impairment in one or more of the following areas: cognition; emotion/behaviour; and motor skills. While TBI can happen to anyone, children, particularly teens, are susceptible. And, children who have already had one TBI are at greatest risk. Written by a team of medical specialists, therapists, educators, and an attorney, the book covers: what is traumatic brain injury?; medical concerns; rehabilitation and treatments; coping and adjustment; effects on learning and thinking, speech and language, and behaviour; educational needs; and legal issues. Throughout the book, a case study of a boy who was injured at age eight, illustrates the effects of TBI on education, socialisation and independence. Parent statements at the end of each chapter attest to the variety of response families have, and offer insight about the experience of raising a child with TBI. A resource guide of support and advocacy organisations, a reading list, and glossary round out this authoritative guide. This book is useful to professionals who provide services to children with TBI and their families. General and special educators will find it essential reading to help their students with TBI. But most of all, the book gives parents the hope and facts they need to improve the outcome of their child's recovery.

Taking its title from the wordplay of a child who has cerebral palsy, this book spotlights the world of disability - a world that tends to be secret, a source of stigma, shame and disgrace. The subtle and sensitive photography of Angela Buckland records her journey through this world from when she first suspected that her son was disabled to her decision to record the experiences of seven families with disabled children. This is not a book of easy answers, yet it provides families and healthcare professionals with a compassionate, understanding and inspiring guide to ordinary people's real experiences.

Epilepsy is a difficult illness to control; up to 35% of patients do not respond fully to traditional medical treatments. For this reason, many sufferers choose to rely on or incorporate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into their treatment regimens. Written for physicians, knowledgeable laypersons, and other professionals, Complementary and Alternative Therapies for Epilepsy bridges the worlds of traditional medicine and CAM to foster a broader perspective of healthcare for patients. The book respects cultural differences that may incorporate alternative medicine into a medical management program, and encourages patients to safely continue receiving necessary medical treatments. Wherever possible, scientific evidence supports the choice of treatment modalities, as well as the effectiveness of a combined traditional and CAM approach. Readers will find incisive discussions in sections on: Learning to Reduce Seizures Asian, Herbal and Homeopathic Therapies Nutritional Therapies Alternative Medical Therapies Oxygen Therapies Manipulation and Osteopathic Therapies Music, Art, and Pet Therapies From stress and epilepsy, to acupuncture, massage, craniosacral therapies, homeopathy, ketogenic diets, aromatherapy, hypnosis, and more, the book is all-inclusive and enlightening. Additional commentary by the editors provides a critical vantage point from which to interpret the data and viewpoints of the contributors, all experts in the therapies presented. This balanced, scientific approach will appeal to even those most skeptical of alternative therapies, making the book essential for every professional who seeks to provide the broadest range of effective patient care.

Edited by two experts from the cerebral palsy unit at the distinguished SARAH Network of Hospitals in Brasilia, Brazil, this book is designed for rehabilitation professionals and provides important guidelines for training parents and involving the family in the rehabilitation process. Including 200 line figures representing SARAH's novel neurodevelopmental exercises, as well as a CD-ROM with printable versions of all neurodevelopmental exercises included in the book, as well as some additional ones, The Child with Traumatic Brain Injury or Cerebral Palsy prepares rehabilitation professionals for training the family to perform, at home, a rehabilitation program developed by an interdisciplinary team. Clearly presented and easy to follow, this important work will appeal to physicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, speech therapists/teachers and all professionals who care for children with cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and developmental delay.
