20. G.D. first interviewed Glenn Doman, in Melbourne, Australia, for New Zealand radio and television in 1974; he has studied the Doman method in action in Australia, New Zealand and especially at The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, in 1988 (for one week), 1989 (for one week), in 1990 (during a three-day television recording session) and during the preparation of this book (1992). Dryden has yet to meet one published critic of Doman who has actually visited The Institutes or studied his work at first hand. In fact, one highly qualified professor, and the leader of a model school, interviewed for this book, publicly criticized Doman's methods while admitting to using them extensively. 247

Note that, while this is an excellent book overall, many other child-development specialists disagree with Dr. White on the use of "baby bouncers" and "walkers". Dr. White correctly recommends that these should not be used for more than 15 minutes at a time; others say that any use of them encourages some parents to use them as "baby sitters", and prolonged use can cause developmental problems, particularly if they are used as a substitute for the important neurological stage of crawling. 255
