Improve your child’s learning and focus! A Focused Brain is an Occupational Therapy clinic that specializes in new cutting edge therapies that are backed by science and are brain based, not drug based. We work with those who are struggling with ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s, Dyslexia, Sensory Integration and Learning Disabilities. We believe the typical cookie-cutter therapy setting does not always cover the child’s struggles with everyday life activities. We will develop engaging treatment programs that are both fun and effective for your child. Visit our web site to learn more about our programs and then take the first step in helping your child reach their potential by calling us today.
