Brain Balance Has a Non-Medical Approach to Help Your Child
Brain Balance is the leading drug-free program designed to help kids improve focus, behavior, social skills, anxiety, and academic performance. Our comprehensive programming incorporates learnings from cognitive, behavioral and nutrition fields—an integrated approach that is literally redefining what’s possible.
Is something blocking your child’s social, behavioral or academic progress? Brain Balance picks up where conventional approaches leave off, going beyond the treatment of symptoms to address root causes. At Brain Balance, we’re not about coping with barriers. We’re about knocking them down, one small breakthrough at a time.
Research Shows Brain Balance is Effective
A Harvard study found that kids who participated in the Brain Balance Program saw a significant reduction in ADHD index scores, discernible changes in hyperactivity, enhanced cognitive attention, and reductions in oppositional behavior.
We are continually collaborating with world class researchers to show the efficacy of the program and reveal through data how the Brain Balance Program can help children, teens and adults improve.

Stories from Brain Balance Center of Central Florida
"With the help of Brain Balance, Eli has been able to come off all of his medications and he has learned coping skills when anxiety strikes (much less often than before). His angry outbursts have lessened substantially. It is refreshing to see how happy he is. I heard him laugh about halfway through the program."
"Natalie has shown improvement in eye contact and a lot more verbal than she used to be. She actually skips and started to run when she never did before. At school, I would pick her up for aggressive behavior but since she started the program school has reported nothing but inappropriate touching and loud vocals. Tremendous improvement at school. I look forward to see what else she can accomplish."
"His teacher even noticed he was paying more attention in class and called me to tell me that his listening skills changed, he was following direction in class, and was even eating his lunch. I told his teacher I had taken Joel off his medications because Brain Balance helped us find the problem and manage it appropriately with the correct care. It was such a blessing to see all these changed and we are extremely happy with the results. Joel is doing good and he is more responsible. Thank you Brain Balance!"
