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, 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,
