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 Plainfield
"We are so thankful we decided to take the Brain Balance journey with our kids. The transformation that took place in them has truly been a blessing to watch.

"I’m so glad we enlisted the help of Brain Balance for my 12-year-old son. When I was shown a video of him before his first session compared to his last session, I was so excited to see how he had progressed over 6 months! He really worked hard his last quarter of 6th grade and improved his grades (no D’s or F’s on his report card). He is talking to me more about things that interest him and is interacting better with kids his age. I also noticed that he has improved in the sports he plays."

"We came to Brain Balance because Ethan struggled with focus, outbursts, agility, coordination, and transitioning from one situation to the next. At the beginning of this journey, results were few and far between and it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. However, as we continued on, and began to see significant changes more and more frequently, it became evident that the program was definitely impacting our child and he was truly benefitting from the curriculum. Our family’s life changed as we have less conflict, fighting, overall more functional, and peaceful atmosphere."
Ethan, Age 11
"We brought our six-year-old daughter, Karynne, to Brain Balance because she had difficulty with paying attention, reading comprehension, academic development, emotional regulation, difficulty in social conventions. We all grew closer through the process and Brain Balance became a way of life for all of us. Was the cost worth the benefit? It was most definitely worth it! Brain balance has been life-changing. We couldn't have asked for a more rewarding experience to help our daughter."
Karynne, Age 6
"We were at our wits end with what to do about Webber at the beginning of 1st grade. He was constantly getting in trouble at school and his relationships there and at home were struggling. We didn't know what to do. Brain Balance was recommended to us years ago, but we didn't see the real need to do anything drastic until Webber aged and the problems just got worse."
Webber, Age 7
