The Brain Balance Program recognizes that every child struggles with unique challenges. That’s why our behavioral experts customize each child’s activity plan to suit his or her specific needs. Your child’s activity plan is based on his comprehensive assessment conducted by our professionals. You can expect your child’s assessment to take place over two sessions, each lasting up to an hour and a half.
The assessment covers more than 900 different areas of function ranging from sensory motor functions to academic skillsets. We’ll evaluate your child’s communication abilities, including his ability to express himself and to understand spoken and written language. We also assess your child’s social skills and behavioral issues. By assessing these various areas of function, our experts can determine which specific sensory motor and academic exercises can help your child succeed.
At the Brain Balance Achievement Centers, our behavioral experts are highly experienced in working with young children, and they’ll make sure the assessment is conducted in a child-friendly manner. If you have any questions, please visit our website to read more about our program. Parents in Vernon Hills and Mequon are invited to call us at (877) 289-3383.

The Brain Balance Program has helped many children overcome their personal challenges, including hyperactivity. Watch this video to hear an interview with Becky, a kindergarten teacher who struggled with the learning and behavioral issues of a little boy named Ian. Ian had a lot of trouble standing still; he was in constant motion. Ian often flapped his arms and ran down the hall, not responding to his name being called.
As you’ll learn in this interview, Becky was amazed at the progress Ian made after a few months of working with the behavioral experts at the Brain Balance Achievement Centers. Ian is no longer in constant motion, he responds to his name being called, and he is able to work quietly on his assignments.
If your child’s teacher has noticed some behavioral issues in the classroom, talk to the behavioral experts at the Brain Balance Achievement Centers. You can call (877) 289-3383 to hear about our locations in Mequon and Vernon Hills.

Coping with learning and behavioral issues can often be frustrating for all involved, including your child, your family, and your child’s teachers. Strive toward a spirit of collaboration with your child’s educators. Schedule a meeting with the teacher at the beginning of the year to have a conversation about your child’s behavior in the classroom and whether it might indicate ADHD. While every child has unique behavioral challenges, the following are some general questions you may wish to ask:
Does My Child Complete Class Assignments?
Children with ADHD are either predominantly inattentive or predominantly hyperactive and impulsive. Some children have a combination of these types of symptoms. If your child struggles with inattentiveness, his teacher has likely noticed that he has trouble completing his assignments or that he makes careless mistakes. He may appear to lose his focus frequently while working on classwork or while playing with other children.
Is My Child Prepared for Class?
Kids who are inattentive may frequently lose school supplies, homework assignments, and similar items. Even if you check your child’s backpack before he goes off to school, there’s a possibility that he’ll lose some items along the way and arrive at the classroom sans homework.
How Does My Child Behave in the Classroom?
The behavioral issues of children who are excessively hyperactive and impulsive are particularly noticeable in the classroom, where youngsters are expected to sit quietly. Ask the teacher if your child gets up from his seat at inappropriate times, fidgets excessively, has trouble with quiet play, or is otherwise hyperactive.
What Are My Child’s Communication Patterns Like?
Kids with ADHD who are predominantly hyperactive may talk excessively, even when it is inappropriate to do so. They may also interrupt others in conversation. Comparatively, children with inattentiveness may appear as though they aren’t listening to directions.
The unique, proprietary Brain Balance Program seeks to empower children and help them achieve academic and personal success! Parents who suspect their children might have ADHD are encouraged to schedule a comprehensive assessment with our learning and behavioral experts.
