Does your child struggle with learning and behavioral challenges including dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, OCD, PDD, Asperger’s syndrome, Tourette’s, or high functioning autism?
Brain Balance Achievement Center in Pennington offers real solutions based on a revolutionary, non-medical approach. The solution is simple, yet profound. It is based on a new understanding of the underlying cause of all of these problems: a brain imbalance. That is when the left and right sides of the brain develop at different rates. This is called Functional Disconnection Syndrome (FDS).
Dr. Robert Melillo, creator and co-founder of Brain Balance, is a world renowned chiropractic neurologist, professor, author, and researcher in childhood neurological disorder who decided to devise a non-medical solution when his child was diagnosed with ADHD. Dr. Melillo is the author of two groundbreaking books on his work, “Disconnected Kids” and “Reconnected Kids,” which provide parents with additional insights into just how this approach can help connect their children with the success they deserve.
Brain Balance Achievement Centers’ program is a 12-week, after-school program designed for children in grades K-12. It consists of three one-hour sessions per week. Each program is custom-designed for each child and is based on the results of a comprehensive evaluation of the child’s sensory, motor, auditory, and visual skills. The program helps each child overcome his challenges using simple and fun physical, sensory, and academic exercises.
Today there are more than 60 centers nationwide. Brain Balance Achievement Center of Princeton-Pennington opened last May in Pennington. Dr. Vincent Kiechlin, the director of the center, studied with Dr. Melillo and specializes in working with children with neurological issues at his Peak Chiropractic Neurology practice in Princeton.
Another underserved audience that can benefit from the program is children who are under performing at school.
“What we find is that some children who just get by in school have a brain imbalance that has not been identified, but that can be easily corrected. These children who might be getting Bs, Cs, and Ds all of sudden start getting As and Bs after the program,” Dr. Kiechlin explained. “For example, some children can read aloud perfectly well but have little comprehension, while other children experience great difficulty reading aloud, yet have great comprehension. Each problem clearly indicates a weakness on one or the other side of the brain.” Dr. Kiechlin says the goal of the program is to change the brain and bring it back into balance by strengthening the weaker side of the brain.
