"I have two sons (ages 10 and 12) who were driving me crazy with their behavior problems. One had many symptoms of ADHD and he successfully completed the program with a significant decrease in symptoms. My 12 year old had such poor impulse control that he would go from 0 to 60 with his anger, often with only the slightest trigger. He is now much more in control of himself and I haven't seen the level of anger in about 4-5 weeks. After they had completed a few sessions, I decided I also could benefit from treatment. I am almost done with my treatment and I am happy to report with a decrease in their symptoms and my anxiety eliminated we have a great deal of peace in our home...which barely existed prior to our introduction to Neurocore. I am a true believer that this program makes significant changes in the way people live their lives.
Wow! My family can now enjoy quality time. There is less discord between my children and we are all coping with stress differently. We had tried cognitive behavioral therapy prior to finding Neurocore with no changes. Neurocore has decreased the tension in all three of us.
The staff was so informative. I have been fascinated to learn about the brain and find myself educating myself about neuroscience with an unending thirst for my information since we began attending Neurocore. The staff would explain information over and over again as if it were the first time despite my repeated questions because due to my own anxiety I had difficulty remembering what they said.
From my first phone call to the last visit the level of professionalism and courtesy of the staff has been amazing. I always felt like a valuable customer as if my family were the only ones being treated. The staff is always happy and uplifting. My son was not so excited about attending his appointments; but, the staff was always able to encourage him to get through his appointments. I am forever grateful.
It works, even if the kids don't 100 percent apply the breathing techniques. I applied the breathing techniques and had a greater success in the reduction of anxiety symptoms."

"My son has difficulty in social situations. He is very energetic and sometimes has a hard time handling himself. He has a hard time making friends and he believes people are always mean. He doesn't know how to deal with his emotions even though he has the tools. When he is calm he knows what is right and wrong but if someone makes him angry his tools go out the window. His emotions are rapidly changing and it effects how he does at school along with everyone at home.
My son is sleeping better and I notice a difference one on one but no other differences. I am disappointed because I thought we would see more change."

"[Reasons for coming to Neurocore] To help our son who was struggling with focus and reading.
His reading ability is on an upward trend. He remembers more details. His relationships with friends are improving and he seems much more aware and relaxed.
We feel like this isn't a magic cure but was certainly a huge benefit for our son. He has experienced so much positive growth since participating in the program."

"My son was having difficulty in school with his focus and attention. We had heard about Neurocore through friends who had a positive experience with the program. We wanted to be able to give our son the tools he needs in order to focus and redirect himself.

"[Reason for coming to Neurocore] My son was having attention and memory issues.
He seems to be retaining information at a much higher level and it is reflected on his homework and test scores."

"My daughter was struggling with staying on task at school and had a very bad temper.
She is staying on task at school and when she starts to get upset she does deep breathing."

"[Reasons for coming to Neurocore] To help with focus without the use of meds.
Without the meds, appetite is much better. Moods are better overall. Focus is better. Time commitment is hard for 30 sessions but so far it has been worth it."

"My son's 4th grade teacher was more than highly recommending he be medicated for ADHD due to his frequent disruption in class. He was unable to sit still and was interrupting her. He came home with a note about his behavior almost daily. The notes have decreased tremendously. I am highly against children taking medication for ADHD as I have many concerns about the long term affects. Neurocore has been the answer for our family.
My son is not quite where I want him to be. We are planning to continue with care. Every staff member in the Boca office and with the prescreening office made me feel very cared about with individualized care.
I highly recommend this program for behavior and attention problems prior to having your child evaluated by a doctor or psychologist for ADHD as they will treat with medications. The research on brain activity is fascinating so why not actually correct the problem rather than medicate it."

"My daughter had ADD and focusing issues. Not only does she see a difference but so do her teachers.
We both understand her brain a little better. The soothing friendly welcoming center helps kids feel at ease navigating through what could be a scary process and makes them better. The therapy is relaxing, calming yet hyper-focused to the patients needs. This is the one task (i.e. Tutoring, homework) that my daughter looks forward to. Their brain is changing and being developed through watching their favorite movies and being cared for by staff that treats them like family!
Every single employee goes above and beyond their jobs! They all care and love their patients."

"Had concerns with my 4yr old son's focus and attention span. He simply could not sit still. In most cases, he was not even aware of the fact that he was constantly fidgeting. After his evaluation with Neurocore, it was discovered that he showed high levels of anxiety, not ADHD. So happy we didn't take the "sit & wait" approach as recommended by every Dr. we spoke with. I knew there had to be something we could try that did not involve medication. Thank you Neurocore!
After our 30 visits, we have definitely noticed improvement in our son's attention span & focus. Just yesterday, his preschool teacher stated that she has definitely noticed improvement as well. Previously, he would not typically finish projects that required him to sit still and focus. However, this past week, he completed 2 projects that required a great deal of focus and ability to sit still.
Have patience.....which is very hard for me. We didn't notice changes until about the 20th session. Then we started noticing subtle changes. As mentioned by the Neurocore staff, we are hopeful to see additional positive changes over the Summer as his brain continues to balance."

"My son was struggling with his ADHD and I tried my hardest to avoid medication for him.
It is easier to reason with him, he has excelled in all areas at school. His teacher said it was like someone flipped a switch. He is a new kid. He is focused and now at the top of his class."

"My son was frustrated and angry, he would have outbursts on a daily basis. He had a hard time focusing and doing what he was told. He was very emotional and was experiencing separation anxiety. Also, he was having a difficult time falling asleep and staying asleep.
Grant is happier and less frustrated. He rarely has outbursts of frustration and anger now. His listening skills have improved and he is able to focus better on the things that he needs to do. The separation anxiety that he was experiencing, and his emotional state have improved greatly. He is falling asleep faster and sleeping soundly."

"I had problems with ADHD and anxiety and wasn't able to attend school.
I can do things without any worries and without having panic attacks and I can complete my homework and chores without getting distracted.
Make sure you exercise regularly, eat well, and sleep well."

"To improve my cognitive functioning after head injury and ADHD - I tried medication which was not successful and had lots of side - I have had a lot of success since starting Neurocore, without the side effects.
I'm calmer - I can focus and read a book and less overwhelmed with day-to-day activities."

"Our 11yr old son had a very hard time focusing and controlling his emotions. When he got upset he would go from calm to a crying screaming tantrum in a few seconds. He would have to take time out from his classes at school to get himself under control so he could function in class. This would happen at least 2-4 times a week. At home he would sometimes get physical with us or his sisters, sometimes he would be physically abusive to the animals and say he just wasn't thinking, he was just doing.
Since we got him tested and started in Neurocore, he has made significant improvements everywhere in his life. He no longer needs to take time out of his classes at school. He is able to stop himself from escalating emotionally by catching himself feeling like he is losing control, doing his breathing techniques, and 'coming back down' to a controlled level. My wife and I were close to our wits end in helping him but thanks to Neurocore, he is able to help himself and we know how to help him get and keep control of his emotions."

"[Reasons for coming to Neurocore" To help child learn skills to overcome anxiety when in everyday life situations and when stressed.
He feels that he is sleeping better and feels less anxious in everyday life and while playing sports. As a parent, I feel that Cody has gained confidence along his Neurocore journey and is able to better understand how to "cope" when feeling anxious. After our initial analysis, when the Dr. took the time to explain to Cody what was going on in his brain and helped explain the "why" behind some of his actions and feelings, you could see some of the weight lift off his shoulders. He walked out of the office that evening with a smile knowing that there was someone who understood and could help him."

"I wanted my son to improve focus, attention, and sleep.
I have seen him improve focus and can reason through things. Impulse control has improved."

"My son was having trouble in school and everyday activities just socializing and focusing. It was becoming a concern with the school so we sought out Neurocore.
My son has become more focused and calm and is paying more attention in class. His overall everyday activities have become more controlled and easier for him to adapt to sudden changes."

"My mother introduced my son to the program. She was referred by a client, and decided to enroll my son into the program.
Things at home are generally the same as they were prior to entering the program, as [he] has had a reduction of his ADHD medication, and there has been similar behavior as there was before. Having that introduced along with the Neurocore treatments shows me that the plan does show improvement. I'm looking forward to seeing how his behavior and focus will be once he overcomes the medication withdrawals (the reduction of his medication is recent).
Make sure you stick to the plan. It will work. Neurocore's staff are good at what they do, and are very understanding with everything from the symptoms to the procedure, even if you have to cancel or reschedule. I recommend this program very highly."

"My daughter Kayleigh had such a hard time staying focus in class and was falling more and more behind. She would be very disruptive during class, at times would be sent off to principal's office for being so impulsive and making poor choices.
Kayleigh still has good days and bad days, but on those bad days she is much easier to handle. I have been told by the principal that she is doing much better in class too. I am looking forward to more improvements as her brain continues to change after the program is done. Thank you!"

"Son was considered to be borderline ADD from another clinic, a clinic which also gave incorrect final report (was someone else's). Not trusting that diagnosis prompted the inquiry here.
He has a much higher energy level (actually wants to play outside). His falling asleep has improved and he seems more rested. He also had some anxiety about school, but that has improved as well."

"[My son] has ADHD and a hard time to focus, especially in school. He is very social and is very easy for [him] to make friends. [He] just recently developed an non motivation to school in general. He doesn't want to go to school and he thinks the idea of school is uninteresting. He dislikes his teachers, principals, and office staff, when they are trying to help him. He also tries to hurt his loved ones at times.
I am hoping that participating with Neurocore and its breathing techniques, it may help with the emotion, and concentration. As we exit I, as his mother is going to see how it goes without Neurocore. If I feel like he needs it, we will be returning prior to the school year.
My son loves it here, and the staff implemented a "super hero" belt. I think that is great especially for the motivation through sessions."

"[Reasons for coming to Neurocore] Help with focus, mood and have a better path for the future.
[My daughter] has been focusing a lot more in school work and getting better grades. She is thinking about her actions more before acting on feelings. She seems to have grown up since starting the program.
Stay the course and finish the recommended 30 sessions. We started at the beginning of Christmas break and just 2 days after the break I had one of Emily's teachers email and tell me 'I don't know what you guys did over break but [she] is more focused, participating, and a joy to have in class.' That really filled my tank and made me very proud of my daughter.
My contact with Katy at the main office was always very helpful with all of my questions."
