Senior Executive Staff
Janet Doman, Director
Janet Doman has been the director of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential (IAHP) since 1980. She grew up at The Institutes and was pitching in to help brain-injured children by the time she was nine years old. She was directly involved in The Institutes groundbreaking work in early reading. At fourteen, she illustrated one of the first books ever published that was written and designed to be read by two- and three-year-old children.
After completing studies in zoology at the University of Hull in England and physical anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania, Janet devoted herself to teaching early reading programs to parents at The Institutes.
In 1974, she headed a team sent to Japan to teach English to mothers and babies at the Early Development Association in Tokyo. On her return to the United States she helped to create The Evan Thomas Institute, the first of The Institutes devoted to teaching mothers of well children how to develop their tiny children intellectually, physically, and socially.
Janet and her father updated and revised Glenn’s international best-selling books, How To Teach Your Baby To Read, How To Teach Your Baby Math and How To Multiply Your Baby’s Intelligence. She authored the children’s book, Enough, Inigo, Enough and co-authored How Smart Is Your Baby? and How To Give Your Baby Encyclopedic Knowledge.
Janet spends most of her day teaching the parents of hurt and well children and helping them to discover the vast potential of their babies and their own potential as teachers and a valued IAHP staff member.

Douglas’s early years on the IAHP staff were spent creating the School for Human Development, a school for brain-injured young adults. He and his staff created the world’s first Human Development Course, a circuit utilizing physical activities that promote brain organization and development.
From 1977 to 1980, Douglas and his staff made significant breakthroughs in the physical development of well and brain-injured children. They researched and discovered the quantification of human mobility and, working with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Vehicle for Initial Crawling.
