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.

Check back here for updates to our local family stories!
"I would definitely recommend Brain Balance to any parent who feels lost with no place to turn. It improved our whole family's quality of life and dynamic. We can never thank Ali, Kari, Melanie, and the Brain Balance coaches enough. This program was both eye opening and life changing."
"The team at Brain Balance Center of Omaha is great. Very responsive to your questions and always there when you need support as your child is going through the process. They are able to predict when certain behaviors will occur which always floored me. The growth in my child was tremendous which has led her to be more relaxed and able to cope so much better with her frustrations. We are not done with this journey though, and only look forward to continued maturity."
"I truly feel putting them both through this program was the best thing we could have done. It has helped them both so much from both a personal and social perspective. I am so very thankful we found this program!"
"Before Brain Balance, my son was struggling with behavior issues. He could go from being so happy to extremely agitated and furious, for no apparent reason. Now after graduating Brain Balance he is so much calmer and a joy to be around! Thank you Brain Balance for all you do!"
"My son was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome and he is a Senior this year. His experience at Brain Balance has made a dramatic improvement in his overall demeanor and ability to handle his emotions. It would be hard to adequately quantify all the areas that Brain Balance and the staff there have helped my son improve, but I feel much more confident in his ability to navigate the world on his own. "
