Empowering Children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD)

ODD Services for Children in Kansas City

Does your child live day-to-day with the effects of Oppositional Defiant Disorder? If your child has an irritable mood, is argumentative, shows defiant behavior, aggression, or vindictiveness - you're not alone. Many kids are diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and medication doesn't have to be your only option. Brain Balance gets to the root of the problem, creating lasting results to help your child overcome his or her struggles.

An integrated non-medical approach for your child.

At Brain Balance, we empower children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder differently. We will give you answers as to why your child is acting this way and create a custom plan to help your child overcome his or her struggles. Through our comprehensive assessment, we will identify areas of the brain that may have a developmental delay, which can lead to an imbalance or functional disconnection. We will then create personalized services for children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) in Kansas City to strengthen the weaker areas and restore balance. Brain Balance combines all the tools necessary for your child to thrive into one integrated program.

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.

We Identify the Why

Identifying the Root Cause

    Why is my child struggling?

    The biggest question all parents share is... why? Why is my child acting this way? Brain Balance clearly identifies and defines the why and provides a solution. We create a holistic view of your child through an initial assessment that identifies areas that need to be strengthened. From the results, we create a personalized plan, clearly identifying your child’s strong and weak skills to provide Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) services for children in Kansas City.

    We are here to provide answers.

    After the assessment, you will understand exactly why your child may excel at some tasks and struggle with others and how this leads to the problems that you and your child encounter every day at home or school. In a poorly functioning brain, the left and right sides pass on partial information. This is the root cause of many types of learning, behavioral, and social struggles. In a properly functioning brain, both sides communicate equally. Our services for children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) in Kansas City will identify the individual issues that address your child's specific needs.

We will also assess academic functions to get a full picture of why your child is struggling.

      "Before Brain Balance, I felt like I was yelling all the time, you know, "Get ready for school," "Eat your breakfast," you know, "Brush your teeth." I just felt like I was yelling all the time. I don't feel like I have to do that anymore."
