She's gone up in school ... just this year, in second grade, she's gone up like 10 reading levels.
The main problem was at school. She was getting a lot of complaints from her teachers about her not being able to focus, to hold still, to follow directions. She was defiant – unable to communicate how she felt with people. It just came out in anger. By the end of kindergarten, we took her in to get tested and she tested for ADHD. They said it was a mild case. We chose not to medicate her or do anything in that nature. She couldn’t read. Her eyes, mainly her eyes, would not focus on the words. There was a side of her brain that needed to be strengthened in order to help her eyes focus. She’s always been very social. She loves talking to people. The only problem she had was just with behavior, being able to follow rules and instructions with her teachers.
The results of the Brain Balance assessment were a relief for us. He described her to a tee. He described everything. Her behaviors at home. The things that her strengths were in and her weaknesses. He nailed it. That’s when we knew we were on the right path.
Her teacher has definitely noticed a difference after Brain Balance. In fact, this last report card that Leanne got, I just cried because it’s the best report card she’s ever had. It’s just amazing. Her self confidence has improved.
Just go in there with an open mind because this is a totally different focus than what you’re going to get from anybody else. It’s not traditional. It’s focusing on the issue, not covering up the issue. It’s focusing on how to live with the issue and to make it a success, and not a failure.
