Drug Free and Strength-based ADD/ADHD Treatment
The Learning Breakthrough Program is a medication-free treatment for improving the range of symptoms and closing the gaps that define attention deficit. This deceptively simple balance and movement program is one of the most respected alternatives to medications and a perfect complement to other therapies.
Established in 1982, the Learning Breakthrough Program has helped thousands of children and adults:
- Increase concentration
- Attend to tasks longer
- Filter out distractions
- Moderate impulsive actions
- Better coordinate thoughts and responses
- Increase brain reaction times
- Improve grades and work results
- Create a comforting, consistent routine
- Progress past their historical ADHD barriers
- Avoid the side effects of stimulant medications
- Overcome impact ADHD has on self-esteem
- Greatly reduce negative behavioral responses
From the first week of doing the program my concentration seems to have greatly improved and for the first time in my life I feel as though I am seeing the entire playing field without struggling... -- Adult user after 10 weeks of program use. (United Kingdom)
The latest obvious improvement with my daughter is that a teacher at school accused my daughter of getting me to complete her assignment. The accusation came because her work was of a higher standard than the teacher was used to. I took the comment as a positive sign of improvement...I feel that people should know that there is an affordable alternative. -- Parent of child with ADD (Bunbury, Western Australia)
Challenging the balance system while performing specific movement exercises provides a highly effective method of improving the brain's efficiency. The background concepts most at play within the program are neurogenesis and neuroplasticity...the brain's natural ability to employ new neurons and adapt the way they travel. By developing a natural way to strengthen these two basic neural functions, the Learning Breakthrough Program operates at a truly foundational level to relieve ADD/ADHD symptoms.
The program is structured and organized into daily sessions for ease of use by the average parent, teacher or professional (occupational therapists, optometrists, audiologists, speech therapists, psychologists, physicians) and comes complete with detailed instructions, benchmarking tests, all the necessary equipment and a work-along DVD for easy instruction. It is important to understand that benefits from a program such as the Learning Breakthrough come about when used correctly and consistently over a long enough period of time. When you (or your child) experience positive changes, your motivation to stick with it increases naturally.
A growing number of physicians are recommending The Learning Breakthrough Program to their patients. If your physician has nothing to offer other than drug treatment, please direct them to Dr. Hallowell's page so they can learn about the safe, medication-free, "strength-based" Learning Breakthrough Program. Many people get immediate help with ADD/ADHD through properly prescribed and monitored medication intended to increase brain reaction speeds. Many others ask physicians for an alternative to medications, either because they want to try something else first or are concerned about various side effects (known and unknown). Learning Breakthrough offers proven results without these risks. There are a variety of intensive treatments, administered by qualified therapists, that incorporate the principles of the Learning Breakthrough Program and generate wonderful results. However, the very best results come from every day use for 6 to 12 months.
The Learning Breakthrough Program is perfectly suitable for the average parent to use in their home or for the professional therapist to include in their practice. The affordability of the program makes it widely accessible and offers help with low financial risk...including a 30-day unconditional return policy.
*note: If you or your child are taking any prescribed medications for ADD/ADHD, do not stop taking the medication unless directed by your physician. Using the program along with medication may assist in reducing the dosage or eliminating the drug altogether. However, only your prescribing physician should make that decision.
