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 Wilmington
"We originally placed our son into the 12 week summer program because he was struggling with math, reading comprehension, and reading retention. We were pleasantly surprised by his improvement in other areas (ones we knew he needed improvement in, but not considered by us a “high priority”), like greatly improved balance – used to hate his bike, scooter, and skateboard, but now uses all 3 well. His gym teacher has noticed improved coordination, more desire to participate, and is now one of the faster runners in class. He even said he wants to be a gym teacher when he grows up – big deal coming from someone who used to LOATHE gym! He no longer complains of daily stomach issues and has had a reduction in daily headaches."
Jennifer H., 10 year old son diagnosed with Aspergers/Autism
"[Before Brain Balance] we haven’t had a real exchange of conversation EVER! I am usually telling him to sit up straight or comb his hair or finish his homework. We never talk – but today we did – and it was wonderful!"
Kelly S., 15 year old son who struggled with Social Interactions, anxiety and Aspergers
"Doing this program has showed me that our so called “disadvantages” are easily seen as faults but Brain Balance in a way does not get rid of them as much as it rounds them out. We have learned how to use our ADHD to help us focus on what needs to be focused on and tune out the outside noise."
Ethan W., Age 15
