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 Norwalk

"We will be forever grateful to Dr. Goldenberg, a kind and gentle person who is extremely knowledgeable in the function of the brain for giving our son the drug-free therapy needed for Samuel’s brain to work with him instead of against him. There are many children who are misdiagnosed and live in isolation because their brains are not functioning correctly. In order for children to succeed, they must rely on us for help."

Samuel

"Thank you once again to Brain Balance of Norwalk. Today, our son Andrew was fully mainstreamed from a self-contained classroom for attentional, social, and emotional support to an inclusion class. He has made unbelievable progress after going through your program. His teachers and support staff were on board with us and all of you."

Andrew

"The challenges Ryan faced were unique in the sense that he didn’t “fit” any one typical diagnosis.  He had some sensory integration symptoms, some ADHD tendencies, low self-esteem, and socializing problems among other things.  We truly felt he had an overall disconnect going on and we were at a loss as to how to help him.  We felt our best and the only option was to identify the source of Ryan’s challenges and not just to treat the symptoms."

Ryan, Age 7
