San Diego, Calif. – Brain Balance San Diego kicks off the New Year with a handful of virtual parenting workshops on executive functioning and goal setting, among other topics from managing meltdowns to sensory processing struggles.
The Brain Balance program is designed to strengthen and build brain connectivity with a unique combination of physical, sensory, and cognitive activities. These new, efficient, and effective connections in the brain lead to improvements in students’ ability to complete cognitive tasks and in their executive functioning. Cognitive tasks include focus, memory, learning, comprehension and reasoning, while executive functioning manages behaviors and emotions, organization, self-motivation and self-regulation, as well as problem solving.
Upcoming virtual talks include:

“The past 10 months have been challenging for everyone, including a second shutdown during the holidays, before a long school break,” said Amanda Lee, Brain Balance San Diego, Center Director. “For kids who struggle with focus, behavior or anxiety, new at-home routines, or lack of schedules during the holidays, can be difficult. Brain Balance can help kids, and parents, evaluate the problems and put a plan in place for the new year that will help both kids and parents.”
When kids struggle with focus, behavior, or sensory processing, it can be linked to weak connections across different regions of the brain. “But the good news is, we know that the brain, and behaviors, can change by applying exercises and activities, outlined through the Brain Balance program, to strengthen and build new connections,” said Lee.
The drug-free Brain Balance program was also recently part of a research study conducted by Harvard University’s McLean Hospital. The research study focused on the impact of aspects of the Brain Balance program, completed at home, on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Additionally, in a separate study, published by the Journal of Mental Health & Clinical Psychology, nearly all students who participated in the program showed nearly 50% improvement in mental well-being.
