With 61 Brain Balance Achievement Centers nationwide and 20 more scheduled to open in 2013, CNN Money has included Brain Balance in its newest list of five top franchises. Read the article here or enjoy an excerpt below:
“Instead of prescribing medication, Melillo, a specialist in childhood neurological disorders, has developed a program that uses physical, cognitive exercises and special diets to stimulate brain activity.
William Fowler, Melillo’s nephew and business partner, said his uncle’s approach is based on research that shows disorders like ADHD and dyslexia are triggered by an imbalance between the hemispheres of a child’s brain.
Strengthening the weaker part of the brain is a way to correct the imbalance and improve a child’s behavior and learning ability over time, said Fowler.
‘[Our] schools are already overwhelmed and underfunded and they can’t help these kids,’ said Fowler. ‘We are trying to fill the increasing need for special education services.’”
We’re excited to be recognized by CNN, and look forward to a productive and exciting 2013! For more information about bringing a Brain Balance Achievement Center to your city, click here.
More About Brain Balance Achievement Centers
We recognize that many childhood disorders are actually manifestations of a single underlying condition called Functional Disconnection Syndrome, which is an imbalance in the connections and function between and within the hemispheres of the brain. This condition is responsible for many behavioral, academic, and social difficulties. Our program directly addresses and improves this communication issue.
After conducting a comprehensive assessment of your child’s brain and body function, we create a program tailored specifically to your child’s needs based on the results of the assessment. Each child’s program is custom designed to include sensory-motor and cognitive activity plans coupled with easy-to-follow dietary guidelines to establish proper neural connections and improve the brain’s rhythm and timing. This whole-person approach helps each child achieve optimal brain and body function, leading to a reduction or elimination of negative symptoms and behaviors. We work with students who have symptoms of learning disorders, ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, and more. Contact us today for more information about our program!
