Business Spotlight: Brain Balance

Gages Story

At Brain Balance of Indianapolis, we understand the pain and frustration of watching your child struggle with learning or behavioral issues. Our groundbreaking program provides lasting results because we don’t simply work with a child’s strengths or compensate for a weakness, we tackle the root cause of the issue. Our unique program addresses the whole child by integrating sensory motor training and stimulation and cognitive activities with nutritional and dietary guidelines. This unique integrated approach is key to what makes Brain Balance different and so effective.

"Since the day I found out I was pregnant, I knew I was going to have an active child. Throughout my pregnancy, Gage was extremely active and this continued after he was born for six years. I was always told by doctors, family and friends that he’s “just a boy” or “he’ll grow out of it.” He hit the “terrible twos” at eighteen months and never really outgrew it. Melt downs, talking back, anger, speech delays and an abundance of energy were the things my husband and I were seeing with him on a daily basis. The older he got, the more sports he got involved with and the more I noticed he struggled compared to his teammates of the same age. He could hit a ball before the age of two, but at six he seemed to have taken several steps back. His school work was even being affected by his lack of attention and hyperactivity. When things didn’t go his way, the tantrums were terrible. One day he’d be an angel who cuddled with me and told me he loved me; the next day he’d be completely out of control. What was I to do? The answers were right under my noise.

I work with children everyday who struggle with the same things my son did. As the Center Director I tell parents, with the utmost certainty, that Brain Balance is the answer for their child’s struggles, yet there I was in denial of my own son’s issues. I decided to take action, went home, and asked my son if he wanted to feel better.

I got Gage tested at Brain Balance of Indianapolis and quickly saw that his symptoms had an underlying cause. His vision was a mess, he had a lot of cross lateral issues and he was slightly behind academically. As I had seen so many children get help through this program, I was extremely excited to have my compassionate son feel better. In a short three months, Gage’s vision, coordination, tantrums, hyperactivity and academics all got better. He used to always hate, even the simplest of books and insisted that I read them to him. Now, I can proudly say he chooses chapter books he’s able to read aloud to me. He can sit calmly at dinner and focus for a much longer period of time. His coordination has improved so much, that the coach has asked him to lead some of the exercises. We couldn’t be more proud of our son, Gage! He worked hard and it really shows! Thank you Brain Balance for changing Gage’s life!"
