The Focus program is a multi-pillared approach to Neuro-Deflective behaviors that are associated with developmental, behavioral, socialization, and learning challenges in children and adults. The program is made up of four pillars which all work in conjunction with each other to provide the greatest amount of healing and change while addressing the bigger picture.
Our doctors use very gentle and effective spinal adjusting techniques and have extensive post-doctorate training in pediatric chiropractic. This is the first pillar of the program due to the fact that we must correct persistent stress in the nervous system and ensure proper communication from the brain to the body and body to the brain in order to facilitate changes and neuroplastic growth in the brain.
Nutrition and Gut Healing
Nutrition, gut healing, food allergies, methylation, and various other challenges within the gut and body can have a huge impact on the developing brain. This is the second pillar in order to reduce stress and improve function in the gut/brain system, facilitating growth and healing.
This pillar is a series of exercises consisting of body movements, balance games, gross motor and fine motor activities, visual games and learning sequences, auditory and metronome exercises, primitive reflex integration activities, and eye movement games. These games are specifically assigned and performed with each participant based on their “gaps” in development that need to be filled in order to achieve optimal success and neuroplastic changes in the brain.
Brain-based mentoring / parenting
This pillar is the often overlooked pillar, but it is just as important as the others! It consists of ongoing lessons and strategies delivered by our FOCUS coaches, FOCUS facilitators, and doctors, to parents and mentors of the participants and even to the participants themselves. We must understand how to reach and connect with the participants to help them grow and engage in the world while we are helping to facilitate physical and neurological growth!
Each of these pillars, on their own, can have a dramatic effect on those suffering from neurodevelopment challenges, but Focus stands alone as the only program of its kind in the world that uses them together! ADD/ADHD, Asperger syndrome, dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, learning disabilities, and other undiagnosed behavioral, social, learning, and developmental problems are all included as Neuro-Deflective behaviors that can be helped by the Focus program.
The second (and much longer) answer about “What is Focus?” is the one that we provide to the community once a month for free in the form of a 60-90 minute lecture. This lecture allows us the time to break down each one of the four pillars and explain how they function in providing the body the tools it needs to heal itself. There is simply no quick answer to describe exactly how the program will benefit you or your child without you attending a lecture to get the full scope. If you are unavailable to attend a lecture for any reason, we can also supply you with a webinar video of the lecture at no cost or obligation.
So, “what exactly is Focus?”…
It’s a one of a kind program that has already helped over a hundred children and adults overcome a wide array of neurodevelopmental issues that have caused significant stress in their lives and the lives of their families!!
