So I finally had a conversation with someone from The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential. After days of phone tag, we managed to connect.
She suggested I read “What to do with your Brain Injured Child”, stating that even though Wes is still on the road to losing his diagnosis, he is still in the Institutes eyes “Brain Injured”.
I told her about how we are doing a home reading program and it is proving to be successful, she informed me that is just one piece to the puzzle and to look into the book “How to Teach your Child to be Physically Superb”. I told her I did have that book, but was confused on where to start, as the book is written for children starting at birth. She told me she could not give me advice over the phone, however crawling and creeping even in older children helps get the brain to develop.
She offered to send me an information package with more information about The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential. Once I have read the book “What to do about your Brain Injured Child” that will give me a good idea if the program is for us. Then to call her back to book a course.
The course would cost me $1900, but is for 5 days. It is a parents only thing. As hard as it would be to leave Wes I think this is the best thing I can do for him. I mean the reading program alone has helped him develop so much, and he is loving the EK program too.
My main concerns was by the time I go out there and finish this course Wesley will almost be 5. Won’t that be too late?? The lady assured me that they go by neurological age, and that it would be still very valuable 🙂
So after getting off the phone I went online to chapters.ca and ordered the book.
I have to say I was very impressed. She was not pushy at all. There was no salesman talk, she just answered my questions.
Step 1 Read book… I will keep you guys posted 🙂
Have you heard of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential? What are your thoughts?
