Brain Balance Program
What is Brian Balance®?
Brain Balance® is a non-medical cognitive training program designed to help improve focus, behavior, hyperactivity, social skills, anxiety, and academic performance in children.
The Brain Balance® program is available onsite and at-home with virtual coaching. It comprises one hour of daily cognitive training activities, paired with a nutrition plan. Program length is based on each child’s unique needs and goals.
How does Brain Balance® work?
Brain Balance® is designed to strengthen weaker areas of the brain through sensory engagement, physical development, and cognitive exercises paired with nutritional guidance. An initial assessment identifies individual strengths and weaknesses, then the program is personalized to a child’s needs and development level, building progressively as they advance. A coach supports the child and their caregivers through the program.
Who is Brain Balance® for?
Brain Balance® is intended for children 4 years and older, teens, and adults striving to improve focus, keep organized, control impulses, and stay calm.
Brain Balance® does not require a medical diagnosis or clinically diagnose medical conditions, but it may benefit children with ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, processing disorders, or learning disorders.
How much does Brain Balance® cost?
Brain Balance® is a customized program, so the total number of recommended sessions varies from person to person. Brain Balance® offers pricing and program options to accommodate various family budgets, with flexible payment options.

What studies have been done on Brain Balance®?
A small, exploratory study from McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital found Brain Balance® to have clinical, behavioral, and neurobiological effects on par with stimulant medication in alleviating ADHD symptoms in children.
Cambridge Brain Sciences collaborated with Brain Balance® on a study that found children who completed three months of the program displayed significant improvements in cognition, particularly in areas of memory, reasoning, verbal ability, and concentration.
Research published in the Journal of Mental Health and Clinical Psychology suggested that the Brain Balance® program was an effective, non-drug option for reducing and improving emotional and developmental challenges like anxiety, ADHD, or autism. The study focused on children who were at or below developmental milestones and evaluated the parent-reported changes in their behavior before and after undergoing 5 to 6 months of Brain Balance®. According to the study, “An analysis of the survey responses indicated that 75% of children showed a 20% improvement or more in panic or anxiety attacks after program participation, and 25% of children demonstrated an 85.7% improvement or more, with an average of 49.4% (SD = 45.6) and a median of 60%.”
