The Brain Balance program uses non-medication therapy to help children overcome the challenges of ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia, OCD, Tourette's, Asperger's, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and other neurobehavioral disorders.
Executive Director, Dr. Jeremy Fritz, says the goal of the program is to correct an imbalance between the left and right sides of the child's brain. "One side of the brain functions at a lower level than the other side. Because of this, the two hemispheres of the brain are not in sync with each other." The Brain Balance program integrates physical, sensory and motor activities, educational and behavioral methods, and proper nutrition to help the two sides of the brain communicate better. As a result, children have become more focused in daily activities, shown improvements in school, and enhanced their communication and social skills.
An example of this is Jamie Berger's son. The Berger family traveled to the Vernon Hills center from Milwaukee three times a week for the 12 week program. "My son never really looked a child in the eye before going to Brain Balance," Berger says. "Now he can talk to someone for periods of time. He looks them in the eye. It's a huge milestone for him."
The Brain Balance program was created by Dr. Robert Melillo in the 1990's. There are now 38 Brain Balance franchises nationwide. Dr. Jeremy Fritz is a board eligible Chiropractic Neurologist with the American Chiropractic Neurology Board, certified as a Clinical Nutritionist by the International and American Associations of Clinical Nutrition, and functional medicine practitioner with an emphasis Childhood Neurobehavioral and Developmental Disorders.
