A diagnosis of Anxiety Disorder (GAD), is commonly associated with excessive worry and fear that interfere with many areas of the individual's life such as social interactions, school, work and family relationships. In addition, children and teens who experience anxiety may also experience an inability to concentrate, feel restless and wound up and have problems with sleep. Other types of Anxiety Disorders include Panic Disorder and Phobia-Related Disorders. 1,2,3
Brain Balance does not require that a child has a medical diagnosis, nor do we clinically diagnose medical conditions. Our focus is on understanding the struggles these children experience and helping them develop and strengthen the connections needed to help those struggles.
The unique symptoms your child is coping with may be able to improve through a unique combination of physical, sensory, and cognitive activities that help build stronger connections across different regions of the brain.
Research has shown that these symptoms may be linked to weak connections across different regions of the brain.
The good news is, we know that the brain can change in a way that may lead to improvements in these symptoms. The Brain Balance program exercises and activities are uniquely designed to help strengthen and build new connections by using a combination of physical, sensory, and cognitive activities. These new, efficient, and effective connections in the brain lead to improvements in our ability to complete cognitive tasks and in our executive functioning.
We use what we learn in the Personal Assessment to set up your child’s program. By doing this for each child, individually, we create a customized program that addresses any deficits in functions or skills your child may have.
The frequency and duration of these tasks, activities, and exercises are tailored based on your child’s needs.
