The Brain Balance Achievement Center in Pike Creek announced an expansion designed to support more families in the region who are struggling with behavioral, social and academic issues.
“The new additional staff will enable our center to accept more children into the program from Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania” said Greta Fowler, executive director, Brain Balance of Delaware.
Brain Balance is expanding to help children 4-18-plus years who are struggling with behavior and concentration or have difficulties with reading, math, following directions, controlling their emotions, making and keeping friends, participating in sports, etc.
“We understand so much more about a child’s development and how the brain functions than we did just 10 years ago. We are now able to address traditional child development issues with new methods, new exercises and with a very different approach that often eliminates the need for traditional medications,” Fowler said.
“We establish a unique plan for each child that includes sensory motor work, eye tracking, core exercises, academic skill training, healthy nutrition, confidence building and many other activities that work to bolster a child’s developmental deficits. What is unique is that Brain Balance brings all these activities together in one program, including monitoring and reporting on a child’s progress,” said newly promoted Center Director, Lauren Conley, of Middletown Delaware.
The Achievement Center has also added four new coaches from the University of Delaware and Mount St. Mary’s University.
The new staff has studied occupational therapy, behavioral sciences, exercise science, education and philosophy before joining Brain Balance. “We’ve also added a nutritionist to the program that can meet with families via web-conferencing and help address diet issues,” Fowler said.
Brain Balance Achievement Center of Delaware will now be able to work with schools, day care centers, pediatricians and the community groups to inform professionals on the latest research into child development and the new options for helping children who are struggling. “This one of our most important roles. The advancement of science is wonderful, but we need to help everyone understand that we have new options and new methods, in a drug-free program that is changing the lives of children,” said George Rotsch, newly appointed Community Director for Brain Balance of Delaware.
