The Brain Balance Program
Dedicated to helping children in West Omaha: Elkhorn-Millard meet their social, behavioral, and academic goals, The Brain Balance Achievement Center of West Omaha: Elkhorn-Millard provides children with an individualized plan that helps them overcome their unique challenges. To create this plan, children are given a personalized assessment at a local Brain Balance Center. This assessment helps us to identify each child’s challenges so that their personalized plan addresses each of their struggles. We include academic activities, sensory motor training, and dietary guidelines in each child’s individualized plan, because we believe that these activities are valuable in developing an integrated, whole-child approach.
In addition to our individualized plan, sports participation can help your child overcome their challenges and reach their goals. Sporting activities give children the opportunity to practice social skills, build core muscles (posture), strengthen their endurance, and improve coordination. In addition to helping children socially and physically, participating in sports can help children mentally.

Enhanced Processing, Improved Attention Span, and Better Moods Through Sports
Studies show that exercise can help children process information at a faster pace than those who do not engage in any physical exercise. This was evident in a 2014 Pediatrics study where faster processing speed was prevalent among children who exercised. Being able to think faster can help children with learning issues stay on pace with classwork for academic success.
Focusing requires children to pay attention to the subject being discussed. This is often a difficult task for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and other childhood developmental disorders. However, studies show that exercise enhances attention spans. For instance, one 2016 Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders study shows that jogging helped to improve the attention span for children with ASD and ADHD. These findings demonstrate that exercises such as jogging can improve brain health in children with these conditions.
When children get moving, they feel happier. That's because when you exercise, natural stress-fighting brain chemicals are released. Improving moods is instrumental in improving symptoms of depression. For example, exercise can help reduce adverse aspects of depression, such as rumination and negativity.
