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.

Sensory Motor Coach
Hello! My name is Jessica and I recently graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, specializing in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience. I have always been interested in the treatment of disorders without medication, and love the methods that Brain Balance uses to strengthen connections in the brain! I had minor brain surgery in 2018 to treat symptoms of Chiari malformation, and it changed my life in many ways, giving me a newfound passion to help those with mental struggles and disorders. I hope to encourage students to be the best they can be, as I have thoroughly enjoyed watching children's confidence grow as they progress through the program! In my spare time, I love to get outside, by going to the beach, walking my dog, hiking, or longboarding. I also enjoy getting together with family, taking vacations with friends, and getting stronger in the gym!
