The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential is non-profit organization well-known around the world by families with brain-injured children. The Institutes has offices and staff in Italy, Japan, Brazil, Guatemala, Mexico and is expanding into China, Russia and other countries. Families from various countries seek The Institutes and come to the main campus literally across the street from Chestnut Hill, at the intersection of Stenton and Evergreen Avenues. These families are often turned away for treatment from hospitals as their children do not have an acute medical condition. Instead they have a brain injury which requires a different type of long-term care treatment.
From a personal note, our twin daughters were born six weeks prematurely. Both were significantly underweight and one had severe respiratory distress at birth with a concern of oxygen deprivation to the brain. While our daughters were in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, we immediately sought the assistance of The Institutes as we knew Douglas Doman, son of the founder of The Institutes, from being a very active member of The Chestnut Hill Community Association at the time. The knowledge we gained from The Institutes helped us tremendously as we navigated treatment for our daughter as she was being observed for two years by developmental specialists.
While both of our daughters are now thriving at 18 years old and will attend college next year at their top choices, our doctors at the time mentioned that our one daughter could have had a very different outcome had her respiratory distress lasted just one minute longer.
The Institutes realized that while they are well known around the globe and families seek them, they are not as well known in their own backyard and decided to host a neighborhood open house. Feel free to share this invitation with others.
If you are able to attend, please RSVP to the contact on the invitation. We hope to see you on Tuesday, February 23rd.
