Teachers who deal with students suffering from ADD/ADHD are aware of the problems their students encounter in the classroom not to mention the problems they cause. Perhaps the most serious concern for teachers of a child with ADD/ADHD is how to enable the child to achieve academic success. As the teacher of a child who is suffering from ADD/ADHD, you know the frustration everyone experiences as they try to function in a classroom setting. You also know that unless the problem is solved, the child will fall further and further behind.
A child with attention deficit disorder has a slow reaction time, which can be indicative of slow brain processing. Many physicians diagnose ADD/ADHD on the basis of reaction time tests and prescribe Ritalin or other drugs in order to speed up reaction time. The prospect of medicating the condition longterm is a concern for those dealing with sufferers of attention deficits and many of them are looking for a Ritalin alternative.
Balametrics uses balance therapies to improve brain processing speed and efficiency without Ritalin or other medications. A fundamental reality is that the higher the level of balance, the faster the brain must react. It has been determined that there is a mathematical relationship between the number of brain neurons in the network and the reaction time of the network. By increasing the balance difficulty of an activity, the brain is forced to constantly recalibrate itself and involve more neurons in order to perform faster. This addresses the slow reaction time symptomatic of ADD/ADHD by actually changing the physiology of the brain.
Much has been made of the fact that ADD/ADHD is a physiological problem and not a mental/emotional problem. This is very likely true. Studies indicate that over 50% of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder suffer from sensory integration dysfunction as well. It is important to understand that because the behavioral problems exhibited by those with ADD/ADHD are not the result of a mental problem but a physiological problem, that the therapy involved must affect the brain on a physiological level.
