Dr. Mark Smith, the only active board-certified chiropractic neurologist in central Virginia, is opening a Brain Balance Achievement Center Richmond (http://www.brainbalancecenters.com) this month to help parents and kids who are working to overcome these learning and neurobehavioral difficulties. The revolutionary Brain Balance Achievement Center approach offers an integrated and comprehensive non-drug, whole-child approach that includes academic performance, social abilities, cognitive function, sensory/motor skills, visual/spatial organization skills, and nutrition. The goal: to help kids literally change the connections in their brains.
“I’ve worked with children in the Autistic Spectrum for the past 20 years, and it has become my passion to help these families heal,” says Dr. Smith. “People need to know that there are effective methods available to actually get to the underlying cause of these problems, that they are not doomed to just ‘live with it’. We have seen tremendous improvement using these research based protocols and are thrilled with the results and excited to offer this program to the greater Richmond community.“
The Brain Balance Program© was developed by Dr. Robert Melillo, based on his research on Hemispheric Integration Therapy (H.I.T.) – a multi-modal approach to the treatment of ADHD, dyslexia, autism, Asperger’s, Tourette’s, learning disabilities, and other neurobehavioral disabilities found in children. His research was the precursor to and foundation for the program, which was founded in 2003 to help children with neurobehavioral deficits improve their academic, social and behavioral functions.
Brain Balance Achievement Centers Richmond will open on Monday, October 17, 2011, at 15833 City View Drive in Midlothian. On October 25th, at 6:30 PM, Dr. Smith will host an introductory parent seminar on Brain Balance and how it can assist those with ADHD, Asperger’s, Autism, Dyslexia, PDD, Learning Disorders and other disorders within the Autistic Spectrum. Please call the Center for details and directions: 804-977-2747.
