Brain Highways is a type of therapy that falls under the category of neuroplasticity, just like the Learning Breakthrough and Brain Balance programs. Neuroplasticity means that the brain can improve itself according to the way it’s stimulated.

Brain Highways started out as an experiment in a public school in California in 1999. Its purpose was to figure out why some kids struggle in school.

Brain Highways bases its program on the neuroplasticity theory with plenty of sensory activities and fun physical exercise. They also place a big emphasis on helping children outgrow their infant reflexes which many times remains without the parents’ knowledge and inhibits proper child development.

Ever since it’s initial success, Brain Highways has opened up centers in San Diego, California and in Denver, Colorado. Brain Highways also has a unique online program and families from all over the world have benefited long-distance. Their programs have successfully helped and improved the lives of children diagnosed with sensory processing disorder, ADHD, autism, and more.

 

Brain Highways has so many good reviews from parents, and makes a lot of sense! Another reason I really like them is because of the awesome videos they made to explain what children with sensory issues experience. I know when you’ll watch them you’ll appreciate them as much as I do!

 

 

If you’ve ever done the Brain Highways program or if you know someone who has- let us know!

      On top of that Brain Highways has a very important thing in their program which I mentioned only briefly here because it deserves it’s own post. It’s awesomely powerful. 🙂
