The Brain Balance Personalized Assessment
Does your child struggle academically? Does he or she have trouble making friends? Are behavioral issues causing problems in everyday activities?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, the Brain Balance Personalized Assessment can help you understand what is at the root of these issues. It will show you where your child’s strengths lie as well as his or her weaknesses and how the Brain Balance Program® may be able to help.
For over a decade, the Brain Balance Program has helped over 25,000 kids who struggle with learning and developmental issues through our integrated, whole-child approach.
However, it is critical to first understand your child’s particular strengths and weaknesses and if they are up to par in terms of healthy developmental standards. Whether or not your child has a diagnosis from a medical doctor, Brain Balance can help identify any challenges your child may face have through a personalized assessment.
The Brain Balance Personalized Assessment is an objective and quantifiable measurement of each area of function – motor, sensory, behavioral, social, emotional, and academic – allowing us to better understand your child’s unique challenges.
It is important for you to know that Brain Balance does not clinically diagnose medical conditions such as ADHD, Autism, Asperger Syndrome (now considered a part of ASD), PDD-NOS and other ASD’s (autism spectrum disorders). The Program subscribes to a holistic approach with each individual child, whether that child has received a diagnosis by a medical doctor, or has no formal diagnosis at all.
HOW DOES THE ASSESSMENT WORK?
The assessment consists of sensory, motor, and academic testing of many critical functions and is performed in a single session.
The Sensory Motor Assessment – is a series of physical activities designed to identify the areas where your child may have a developmental delay, which can lead to a multitude of learning and behavior problems.
The Academic Assessment – Over the course of this cognitive assessment looking at factors such as attention and memory achievement test, it becomes clear which types of academic skills are strong and which are weak and, further highlights the corresponding areas of the brain that are affected.
Our assessment delivers a complete profile of your child, and provides us with invaluable information about your child’s current physical, verbal, and comprehension skills, so we can create a customized program that meets your child’s needs.
The Report of Assessment (ROA)
Following the evaluation, together we will review a detailed report of your child’s results and discuss how Brain Balance may be able to help. You will understand exactly why your child may excel at some tasks and struggle with others and how this leads to the problems that you and your child encounter every day at home or school. The report will provide you with a complete understanding of your child’s behavioral, social, and academic skills.
This personalized assessment will determine if your child is a candidate for the Brain Balance Program. The testing results help us to create a comprehensive, fully individualized program to address your child’s unique challenges.
