What is happening in the brain of a child with ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, Dyslexia, Autism, or Learning Disabilities?

Research shows that children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) generally DO NOT have brain damage or brain pathologies. What they do have are areas of the brain that are underconnected.

When you look at what is actually happening in the brains of children with ADHD,

Asperger’s Syndrome, Dyslexia, OCD, Autism, Social Issues or Learning Disabilities, you see a similar problem: Namely, that there are areas in the brain, especially between the two hemispheres, that are not connected the way they should be. As a result, one of the two hemispheres of the brain becomes STRONGER AND FASTER and the other becomes WEAKER AND SLOWER. When this happens the two hemispheres become functionally disconnected and are unable to communicate effectively. It’s as if one hemisphere is using a high speed DSL connection and the other is using an old dial-up modem. The characteristics of the stronger, faster hemisphere naturally become amplified while the characteristics of the weaker, slower hemisphere are muted. This lack of balance translates into the noticeable academic, social and behavioral issues that these children exhibit.

At Brain Balance Achievement Centers we:

• Assess your child to see which hemisphere of their brain is STRONGER AND FASTER and which one is WEAKER AND SLOWER. To do this we test over 1200 different sensory motor, cognitive and nutritional markers

• Once we know which hemisphere is WEAKER AND SLOWER we customize a program for your child designed to connect both hemispheres of the brain so they are firing with equal strength and equal speed

• At the end of the program we reassess your child to objectively determine functional improvement
