PRLog - Nov. 4, 2011 - RICHMOND, Va. -- Dr. Mark Smith, the only active board-certified chiropractic neurologist in central Virginia, opened a Brain Balance Achievement Center last month to help parents and kids who are working to overcome these learning and neurobehavioral difficulties.

“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.“
Two information sessions for parents, grandparents, and teachers are coming up. On Tuesday Nov. 15 at 6:30PM, Dr. Smith will present an overview Brain Balance and how it can assist those with ADHD, Asperger’s, Autism, Dyslexia, PDD, Learning Disorders and other disorders within the Autistic Spectrum at Good Foods Grocery in the Gayton Crossing shopping center at Gaskins and Gayton Rd in western Henrico. On Friday Nov. 18 at 10:00AM, Dr. Smith will hold another overview session at the Tuckahoe Library, 1901 Starling Drive, also in western Henrico.

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.
