Meltdowns and Tantrums

Help with meltdowns and oppositional behavior

When your child experiences frequent meltdowns or exhibits oppositional behaviors, it can be difficult to know how to help.  Behavior is the result of development. The more mature a child's development, the better the child's ability to regulate behaviors.

However, if there are gaps in development, a child may have a difficult time controlling emotions and reactions.  If your child is struggling with meltdowns and behavioral control, Brain Balance can help.

Brain Balance does not require that a child has a medical diagnosis, nor do we clinically diagnose medical conditions. Our focus is on understanding the struggles these children experience and helping them develop and strengthen the connections needed to help those struggles.

The unique symptoms your child is coping with may be able to improve through a unique combination of physical, sensory, and cognitive activities that help build stronger connections across different regions of the brain.

Research has shown that these symptoms may be linked to weak connections across different regions of the brain.

The good news is, we know that the brain can change in a way that may lead to improvements in these symptoms. The Brain Balance program exercises and activities are uniquely designed to help strengthen and build new connections by using a combination of physical, sensory, and cognitive activities. These new, efficient, and effective connections in the brain lead to improvements in our ability to complete cognitive tasks and in our executive functioning.

We use what we learn in the Personal Assessment to set up your child’s program. By doing this for each child, individually, we create a customized program that addresses any deficits in functions or skills your child may have.

The frequency and duration of these tasks, activities, and exercises are tailored based on your child’s needs.
