Brain Balance is offering a free parent lecture and tour of their center. Brain Balance offers a neurologically based program designed for children who exhibit signs of ADHD, dyslexia, autism, Asperger’s syndrome, Tourette’s syndrome, learning disorders, or processing disorders. It is a comprehensive, individualized program that integrates physical and cognitive exercises with dietary change. The goal is to correct a fundamental imbalance between the two hemispheres of the brain – a ‘communication breakdown’ that results in a range of negative symptoms and behaviors.
