Harvard University Research Reveals the Brain Balance Program is an Effective Solution for Kids with ADHD
The Brain Balance Program® was part of a research study conducted by Harvard University’s McLean Hospital. The research study focused on the impact of aspects of the Brain Balance program on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Harvard University researchers examined ADHD symptoms in children before and after participation in a home-based Brain Balance Program.® The study revealed comparable results similar to those of a low-dose drug often used to treat the symptoms of ADHD.
“The Brain Balance training had clinical, behavioral, and neurobiological effects on par with pharmacological treatment. This is very encouraging as we believe that the ultimate goal in psychiatry is to develop non-pharmacological treatments for psychiatric disorders that exert enduring beneficial effects,” wrote Dr. Martin Teicher, associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard University and lead investigator of the study.
The results of this exploratory study are promising for individuals diagnosed with ADHD as an alternative to drug therapies currently being used for the management and treatment of ADHD.
