Brain Balance North Olmsted


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 of North Olmsted

"The facts were that I had a kid that struggled hard with speech processing, sensory seeking and had energy for days – it took a toll on the whole family managing behaviors and meltdowns.  Both my husband and I read the book and really wanted to find a Center that could support us, teach us and ultimately help our son reach the potential that we know is inside of him!  Academically, he’s super smart – exceeding his math and science grade level curriculum, playing piano by ear, and always being the kid who is ready for hugs and jumping on the trampoline.  But, he couldn’t focus his attention for more then a few moments (including eye contact) and was frustrated ALL DAY with simple tasks that our two girls mastered quickly."


"If you are on the fence about Brain Balance for your child, I've got two words for you: Do. It. It has made a huge difference in our daughter's life. It won't be overnight and it won't solve every problem your child has, but it will make solid, foundational changes that will hold them in good stead for the rest of their lives."


"Our journey to parenthood wasn’t the easiest. We faced difficulties and challenges that were ultimately overcome by fertility treatments. That journey prepared us for the unexpected that comes with being parents. Our son, Ashton, was a dream come true."


"Doug & Melissa’s story is not uncommon, but it is remarkable. “God is good” Melissa reflects as she describes how Brain Balance has changed the lives of their family through the unmatched improvements their 17, 15, and 11 year old children have made just over this past summer. It’s impossible to listen to the outcomes and not be overwhelmed with joy for them."

Doug & Melissa

"Jackson, in his 3rd grade year, was having struggles with reading comprehension, math, attention in school and just getting a little frustrated when he was going to school, even though he loved school. And we were just trying to figure out a plan with the school and a program they had set in place. We decided to go with Brain Balance after my husband and I researched different companies. Coming to Brain Balance, we decided this is the best fit for him because this is a program that is developed for Jackson’s needs, to make him more confident and to have a strong mind and stronger body."

Nate and April Taninecz

Executive Directors

When their oldest of three children began to show symptoms associated with what would be diagnosed as high functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD, they responded in many of the same ways that so many parents do.  They put on a brave face and motivated themselves to do anything to help their child, but truthfully inside they felt broken, full of doubt with questions of “how” and “why” while blaming themselves and feeling alone.Enter Brain Balance.  Their hope was restored and along with it their son and their family.
