Brain Balance is the leading drug-free training program designed to help kids improve focus, behavior, social skills, anxiety, and academic performance. The program goes above and beyond the more traditional, mainstream approaches you may have tried before to help your child get to the root of their challenges.
Harvard University’s McLean Hospital completed a study which demonstrated that the Brain Balance Program is as effective as stimulant medication in alleviating ADHD symptoms among children. Cambridge Brain Sciences also collaborated with Brain Balance on a study the results of which show that children who completed three months of the Brain Balance Program displayed significant improvements in cognition, particularly in areas of memory, reasoning, verbal ability, and concentration.
You can make up for lost time and help your child get ahead by improving focus, behavior, social skills, and learning. Brain Balance’s non-medical program is tailored to your child’s unique needs with a personalized plan of action and coaching. We’ll help you in the way that works best for you. The program is available onsite or online, at home. Join the 45,000 other Brain Balance families and help your child thrive in the new school year.GET STARTED
We have helped more than 45,000 kids get to the root of their struggles and achieve lasting improvements, including:
Brain Balance does not require that a child has a medical diagnosis, nor do we clinically diagnose medical conditions. Our focus is on understanding the struggles these children experience and helping them develop and strengthen the connections to help reduce those struggles.
For those who do have a diagnosis,1 research has shown that the unique challenges your child is facing can be linked to weak connections across different regions of the brain.
The Brain Balance assessment provides you with a deeper view of your child’s struggles. During the assessment, your child’s sensory, motor and cognitive development are evaluated. This assessment helps identify areas of development that need strengthening. The reasons why a child may excel in some areas but has trouble in others will become clearer. From the results, we create a plan that helps your child overcome their struggles.

Brain Balance of Summit’s center director Betsy Stoeber opened in 2011 based on her own son’s phenomenal success in the program (he attended the center in Norwalk, CT before there were centers in NJ). Now, almost a decade later, Betsy and her caring staff have supported numerous kids and their families through successful Brain Balance program terms. Betsy’s professional background pre-Brain Balance was in business, but she has eagerly made the transition to working with children and families. She holds a MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business and a BA from the University of Michigan. In early 2011, she successfully completed training through the Brain Balance Academy, training directly with Brain Balance founder Dr. Robert Melillo. The story of Betsy’s personal involvement with the Brain Balance Program can be heard in this segment of The Dr. Rob Show (a pilot Dr. Melillo created a number of years ago). Betsy continues to further her knowledge of the brain, hemispheric integration, and neurodevelopmental issues of childhood through ongoing training and study. She has made it her mission to communicate with her community about the root cause of the academic, behavioral and social challenges experienced by so many children, as well as to be a source of information for families on parenting and healthy living. Above all, she enjoys being a part of the achievement and success of children – her own, and those who come to Brain Balance of Summit.
Pragya joined the Brain Balance of Summit staff after experiencing her own child’s growth and accomplishments in the program. After speaking with many families on an informal basis about her love of the program, Pragya felt inspired to join the team. With a background in sales, marketing and advertising, Pragya enjoys the daily interaction she has with families seeking solutions for their struggling children. She says, “When I’ve successfully communicated what makes Brain Balance different and the light bulb goes off for a parent, I know I’ve put another family on the path to a brighter future.” Pragya actively encourages families to reach out to her — she hopes to speak with you soon!
