Brain Balance

I know it’s been a while since I’ve written a blog  - it’s been a busy, busy spring.

But, thanks to a Facebook posting with this link, I am reconnecting with Dr. Robert Melillo and his Brain Balance work again….so exciting!

I had the opportunity to meet with Dr. Melillo many years ago, when he was just starting to build a network of Brain Balance centers across the country.  His research, and his support of brain research with kids on the spectrum, is amazing.  Go to the Brain Center website, http://www.brainbalancecenters.com/ to find a center near you (there are three just in my area alone).

Years ago, when I was working with Kyle in the Son-Rise program, we also used a little known program called Brain Gym.  Right away, I saw changes in Kyle’s speech and attention span, so we incorporated some of the exercises into our Son-Rise program.  I am thrilled to see that the Brain Balance centers are thriving in their attempt to help children on the spectrum recover their cognitive abilities.  As I said, very important stuff!

I know, there are so many programs, so many claims that this one program will be the one – which one will work for your kid?  I don’t know that answer.  The only thing I know is what worked for Kyle.

I do know that when I would run across a program like Brain Balance, I would think, why not?

All the best,
