Harvard Study

A recent Harvard Study showed a brain balancing program is AS EFFECTIVE as stimulant medication in alleviating ADHD symptoms in children.


Harvard University's McLean Hospital completed a study on Dr Melillo's Brain Balance Program and it's effect on kids with ADHD. The results showed that kids who completed the program saw comparable results to those on low dose Ritalin.


Key findings of the study:

  • Children who completed the Brain Balancing program saw significant reduction in ADHD index scores, notable changes in hyperactivity, greater cognitive attention and reductions in oppositional behaviour.
  • Connections across the brain were significantly improved in areas that are responsible for emotional and response control, language processing, memory retrieval, concentration and distractibility.
  • Not only were brain connections significantly improves immediately after the program, but those improvements were still present 7 months later!

Cambridge Brain Sciences Study

Recent research from Cambridge Brain Sciences, reported that children who completed a Brain Balancing program saw significant improvements across all cognitive tasks measured, including:

  • Memory
  • Reasoning
  • Verbal Ability
  • Concentration

What are the experts saying?


      " It is impressive and exiting that the children who completed

             this program demonstrated such significant improvements

             across a broad range of cognitive tasks ".

             - Dr. Conor Wild, Research Scientist at Brain and Mind Institute &               lead statistician in the study.


     " These studies are especially meaningful because the kids

            and parents who are navigating attention and developmental                        challenges want better options- not just more coping                                      mechanisms ".

            - Dr. Rebecca Jackson, Vice President of Programs and                                Outcomes at Brain Balance


Here at Connected Kidz, we are so proud to offer a brain balancing program that provides an effective option to significantly improve cognitive performance for kids and teens with developmental and attention issues as demonstrated in the Cambridge Brain Sciences Study.

We understand that most parents want to get started by having their questions answered. Leave your details with us so we can be in touch and help you find the best solution for you and your family.

The Importance of Timing in the Brain


For more than 30 years, neuroscientists have explored the role of timing in the brain for such things as speech perception (auditory processing), speech production (intelligible articulation), language, reading, attention, memory, cognitive processing speed, decision-making, behavior (impulse-control), and motor coordination. Over the past 10-15 years, they’ve turned their focus toward studying how deficient neural communication (impaired timing in the brain) contributes to various clinical disorders like Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Dyslexia, and Parkinson’s. “Timing in the brain” remains a very active area of research with new studies being published regularly.


Peer-reviewed research supports the view that impaired timing in the brain contributes significantly to impairments in the above-named skill areas. Research also supports the opinion that timing in the brain can be trained and improved through appropriate, targeted intervention.


Below you can read about many studies that explain the connection between timing in the brain, its central role in various human abilities and disorders, and how the Interactive Metronome® may be of benefit.
