bibic, formerly known as British Institute for Brain Injured Children, is a charitable organization for the support and care for children and families dealing with a number of different conditions. The Institute was founded by the late Keith Pennock who had a daughter with a learning disability. The work was derived from Glenn Doman's The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia, USA. It is now known as "bibic" Be Inspired By Incredible Children to reflect the scope of conditions the charity deals with.
Many of the children they work with have disorders of the nervous system, or inherited characteristics, which affect the way the body or brain develops. These include: acquired and traumatic brain injury, Down syndrome, Cerebral palsy, Autism, Specific developmental disorders, Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Learning disability including dyslexia, developmental coordination disorder and dyscalculia. Unlike many other organisations, bibic also works with children that have no formal diagnosis at all.
A variety of therapeutic approaches are used. There is no peer reviewed research into the effectiveness of therapy for this condition.
The organisation raises funds and receives no Government funding.
