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 Center of Mequon
"My son’s speaking fluency has improved significantly, one would not know he was once a severe stutterer. His communication processing is greatly improved, no delays in responding and we know that he knows/understands immediately. He expresses his awareness and really has a keen sense of good/bad, right/wrong and he is not afraid to challenge if he hears anything negative or disagreeable."
"Overall, I am seeing great improvement in my son’s attitude and confidence. My son is trying out new social skills; he is engaging in play with others more often. He has taken the initiative to interact and play with kids that he does not know. He also seems to be more focused and able to sit for longer periods."
"17 year-old with Autism My son has better eye contact. He likes to play table tennis, and previously the longest we could play was 10-15 minutes. This past Sunday, he played for 45 minutes and I was the one who wanted to stop for a break!"

Lynn & Jason Brittnacher
The past five years of Lynn and Jason’s family’s life were filled with health challenges that seemed insurmountable. Leaning on God through these times allowed them to come out on the other side, stronger and more blessed than they could have ever imagined. With grateful hearts, they turned their eyes upward and asked, “What is your plan for us God? We are here to serve.” God answered them with an overwhelming need to use their talents to help individuals who struggle.
