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.Get Started

As a parent, it can be heart-wrenching and exhausting to watch your child struggle with academic, social, or behavioral issues. Brain Balance Achievement Centers has helped thousands of children overcome the challenges of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), anxiety disorders, learning disabilities such as Dyslexia, processing disorders such as Auditory Processing Disorder (APD), Sensory Integration Disorder (SID), behavioral issues such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Aspergers, Leaky Gut, and a host of other related childhood learning and development issues. The Brain Balance program in Summit, New Jersey, is a non-medical and drug-free approach to overcome the challenges that your child faces on a daily basis.
The Brain Balance Achievement Center of Summit starts with an in-depth assessment of your child to help us personalize the learning program to meet your child’s needs. From there, we have in-center sensory motor training and academic skill sessions that are one hour long, three times per week. Each program is personalized to the challenges of the child and the timeframe varies. The number of sessions we suggest is determined by the results of your child’s assessment. Generally, programs are completed in 36 or 72 sessions, with some children needing more sessions to achieve their goals. The Brain Balance Achievement Center of Summit also provides in-home activities including a nutritional program that establishes a healthy environment for the entire family.

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.
