ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is a condition characterized by developmentally inappropriate levels of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior.
In young children, these issues may not yet be categorized as a specific diagnosis, but a child with significant behavioral issues may exhibit signs of anxiety, have frequent and severe tantrums, be manipulative, and/or be repetitively defiant towards those in authority.
Processing disorders, like auditory processing disorder, visual processing disorder, and sensory processing disorder are caused by a deficiency in a person’s ability to effectively use the information gathered by the senses.
High Functioning Autism is characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, motor coordination issues, and restrictive, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior. As well as being deemed to be cognitively higher functioning than other people with autism.
The Science Behind Brain Balance
Although decades of complex research have gone into discovering the scientific principles that are the precursors of the Brain Balance Program®, understanding how our unique program works is simple. Understanding the Underlying Problem A properly functioning brain communicates between both hemispheres as well as within each hemisphere at lightning speed. Think of these communications like runners in a relay race: They connect, pass on information, and release, repeating this process millions of times a minute. In a poorly functioning brain, these runners are often out of sync, missing each other or passing on only partial information. This miscommunication is called Functional Disconnection and is at the root of all types of neurobehavioral and learning problems. With the primary goal of improving your child’s function, we’ve discovered the optimal approach is to implement a program that consists of academic and sensory-motor activities in combination with simple dietary changes.


The team of child behavioral experts at The Brain Balance Achievement Centers has extensive experience working with children. We conduct comprehensive assessments in a child-friendly manner; for your youngster, it’ll just seem like he’s playing games. In actuality, the assessment enables our behavioral experts to evaluate more than 900 functions across areas such as behavior, cognitive, and sensory- motor. This allows us to pinpoint the precise areas your child struggles with. Additionally, our behavioral experts welcome your insight with regards to your child’s challenges.

Sensory Motor Examination

Children with learning and/or behavioral issues often have trouble with sensory and motor function, such as sensory detection and sensory processing. During the sensory motor examination, our experts instruct your child to complete a series of physical exercises. The results of this examination enable the identification of the specific areas of the brain that have a delay in development. This delay gives way to Functional Disconnection Syndrome (FDS), which refers to the impairment of communication across the hemispheres of the brain.

Brain Balance is a class act, and my husband and I very highly recommend the program to any family whose child(ren) are experiencing difficulties in any of the areas along the ADHD- Autism Spectrum. It is well worth the fee, and the results are amazing!

Celebration of firsts! First night of 2nd grade homework and first night we didn’t have frustration, tears, or anger. I realize it is early in the school year but any first is worth celebrating! We owe it all to the brain balance program!

Brain Balance has taken time, but has returned to us the quality of life that was consumed by our son’s difficulties prior to this program. I highly recommend this program to any family who has a child who struggles. Now there is more room for my son to shine as he was meant to.
