We Are The Home of "The Doman Method"
We Are The Home of “The Doman Method”
GLENN DOMAN founded The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential to which parents from every continent have been finding their way for more than a half-century.
Glenn’s daughter, Janet Doman, became director of The Institutes in 1980. Since Glenn’s passing in 2013, the staff of The Institutes proudly continue to teach parents and to expand the mission of The Institutes around the world.
The work of The Institutes has been translated into many languages and used in many nations around the world. As often happens to pioneers, people like to shorten or abbreviate sophisticated terms or ideas to single words or couplets. This can be very irritating, if not infuriating, to the pioneers, but it happens all the time. Some people have chosen to use the couplet “The Doman Method” to describe the work of The Institutes. Glenn himself very much disapproved of this term.
The Director of The Institutes, Janet Doman, with the Founder of The Institutes, Glenn Doman.
Glenn never used this term and discouraged others from doing so whenever he could.
Glenn always said, “It does not exist except in the minds of those who do not understand what The Institutes are really about or those who wish to minimize what we do. There is no Doman Method, there is only the program of The Institutes.”
He believed that using the term “Doman Method” did not properly acknowledge the significant contributions of the many staff and parents who have helped to make the work of The Institutes the dynamic and highly successful program that it is today. He also believed that the term “method” was not an appropriate description of the philosophy, program, and techniques developed by The Institutes.
We are proud to follow in the footsteps of Glenn Doman and to teach thousands of parents of brain-injured and well children worldwide.
Glenn Doman dealt intimately with more than twenty-five thousand families over the last fifty years and strongly influenced millions of families through his books. The Institutes carries on the work of this wonderful man.
This is why we can say, “We are the home of The Doman Method, but we do the program of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential.”
