Harvard University’s McLean Hospital Study Shows The Brain Balance Program® is as Effective as Stimulant Medication in Alleviating ADHD Symptoms in Children

The Brain Balance Program® was part of an exploratory research study conducted by Harvard University’s McLean Hospital. The research study is focused on the impact of aspects of the Brain Balance program on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Harvard University researchers examined ADHD symptoms in children before and after participation in a home-based Brain Balance Program.® The study revealed comparable results similar to those of a low-dose drug often used to treat the symptoms of ADHD.

“The Brain Balance training had clinical, behavioral, and neurobiological effects on par with pharmacological treatment. This is very encouraging as we believe that the ultimate goal in psychiatry is to develop non-pharmacological treatments for psychiatric disorders that exert enduring beneficial effects,” wrote Dr. Martin Teicher, associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard University and lead investigator of the study.

The results of this exploratory study are promising for individuals diagnosed with ADHD as an alternative to drug therapies currently being used for the management and treatment of ADHD.

These measures revealed a significant reduction in ADHD index scores, discernible changes in hyperactivity, enhanced cognitive attention, and smaller-scale reductions in oppositional behavior.

The Harvard University McLean Hospital team is continuing their research and additional findings will be shared here as they become available.

Cambridge Brain Sciences is collaborating with Brain Balance to understand the cognitive impact of the Brain Balance program on attention, focus, anxiety, and development. Preliminary results show that children who participated in the Brain Balance program have demonstrated a statistically significant change in 11 of the 12 Cambridge Brain Sciences cognitive tasks measured.

Research published in the Journal of Mental Health and Clinical Psychology suggests that the Brain Balance Program is an effective, non-drug option for reducing and improving emotional and developmental challenges like anxiety, ADHD, or autism. The findings revealed that nearly all the children who participated in the program showed improvements in mental well-being, with most categories reaching an average of 40-50% improvement.

What Our Parents Are Saying:

“Honestly, every penny has been worth it because of the huge change in her. My daughter is reading independently. In this time period that we’ve been at Brain Balance, she’s jumped up multiple grade levels in reading. Her math is stronger. There’s just no greater place for her.”

Christine Powell

“The staff at Brain Balance truly love the children they work with and pour themselves into the kids. I will forever be thankful for the work they did that caused us to fall in love all over again with the little girl we always knew our daughter was.”

Sarah Jenkins

“I would recommend Brain Balance for sure just because, for me, not only does it seem to have helped my child really quickly, but it’s fun for her. It’s not like, ‘Oh, I have to go to Brain Balance today.’ It’s like, ‘Finally, it’s a Brain Balance day!’”

Melissa Miller

“I feel like it was the best decision we ever made. I’m pretty sure there’s not a single area that my son didn’t improve in, and it shows on his testing.”
