Connie suspected that something wasn’t right with her grandson Blake*, who had tics from the time he was a young child. By the time he was four, behavior problems began surfacing, leading to suspensions in pre-school and again in kindergarten. Medications didn’t help.
“If it weren’t for the Center for Brain Training, Josie wouldn’t be where she is today, because we aren’t doing anything else with her other than brain training,” said her mother.
Josie had struggled in school since kindergarten, and it just got worse over the years as Josie was socially promoted from grade-to-grade.
John, age 9, was painfully shy. He was very quick to get upset and cry. He also had difficulty with attention and struggled with reading and writing. He was not doing well in school. His mom was very concerned.
The Center for Brain Training recorded an EEG brain map, which identified two key brain patterns: Excessive theta waves which correlate to an inattention problem and a lack of connectivity between the left central and parietal areas of the brain.

When “Bradley” was an infant he suffered brain damage after going into a diabetic coma in his crib.
Four-year-old David was out of control, constantly seeking attention, causing disruption in the home and in danger of physically harming his siblings. Six months after doing regular neurofeedback training with an at-home system, he is calm at home, follows directions, plays nicely with his siblings, socializes with other children, and is a model child in pre-kindergarten.
Eleven-year-old Oliver is still a “smarty pants,” says his mom Lorena with a smile, but the tornado he used to impersonate is long gone. Diagnosed several years ago with ADHD, he remains very active but isn’t “over the top” anymore when it comes to being distracted – and exasperating.
No longer hearing complaints from school about her son,
“Anika” was exhausted. Every night she spent two hours sitting at a table with her son, 14-year-old “Sai,” reading and explaining his homework assignments to him.
Clean clothes piled up, unfolded, on the laundry room table. Dirty dishes from dinner sat in the sink unwashed. (She just had to stop looking). And by the time Anika made it to the gym,
“Neurofeedback worked for my son when nothing else did. I finally have hope for him, and he also has hope that life can get better. He is an entirely different person than he was a year ago.”
Christine’s son Alex was spiraling out of control. He was failing in school. He had no friends.
