Brain Balance Westchase


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 Westchase

"My son was assessed for a new school today.  He was to start 4th grade.  His reading comprehension level put him in 7th grade.  I am thrilled.  Six months ago in August, he was just below 4th grade.  I know that Brain Balance has made a difference in his reading comprehension scores."

Brain Balance Graduate

"We have noticed our son is calmer, and if something does bother him, it is very short-lived.  He is transitioning better.  The staff at Brain Balance is great! Our son’s music teacher said he never raised his hand in class until today.  He asked for the drum and played and hummed a classical piece of music that the teacher recognized right away!"

Brain Balance Graduate

"We drive 2 ½ hours one way and our son is worth every minute and mile spent on the road. Just 20 sessions and my son’s reading fluency and word reading have markedly improved. We are so proud of him! He loves coming to Brain Balance. His confidence has improved greatly too."

Maura De Gracia

After having worked in the School System for grades K-8th as the English Speakers of other Languages Coordinator (ESOL), I increased my love and compassion in working with children with challenges. When you help the child, you help the family. And that is the most rewarding aspect of my job here at Brain Balance as the Family Support Coordinator. My own family consists of my husband of 38 years, my two adult children and my beautiful Belgian Shepherd, who all make my day a little brighter! I love gardening, nature walks, and the almighty God whose love and mercy is limitless.
