|The Australian Institute was formed over 30 years ago by Tim
and Claire Timmermans. Originally, the Australian Institute
was structured so that brain-injured children were taken from
Australia to America by Tim and Claire to be asessed and have
programs prescribed. In 1975 the Australian Institute became
a fully operating institute,and now offers treatment for brain-injured
children within Australia and abroad.
Since then, the Institute has worked with hundreds of brain-injured
children from Australia, New Zealand and other countries,
with remarkable results. Children who could not see became
able to see, read and write.
Children who could not crawl became able to walk and even
run. Deaf children learned to hear and communicate verbally.
Others learned to feed and dress themselves. There are some
that made it to a mainstream school education, including secondary
and even university.
The Australian Institute team has travelled all over the world
'rescuing' brain-injured children with remarkable results.
