MIDLAND-A local program has been changing the lives of many here in the Basin.
In Balance, located in Midland, is a 12-week program that helps children and adults of all ages with developmental disabilities.
Missy Dwyer, the owner of In Balance, says thereís not an age limit for the program, and that itís all done by different balancing therapy methods without the use medication.
Dwyer says she could spend all day talking about the success stories of those who have gone through the program.
Sheís helped both children and adults who have ADD/ADHD, autism, brain injuries, dyslexia, and memory problems just to name a few.
During the 12-week program, participants go through a number of different activities consisting of balancing techniques.
These techniques force both sides of the brain to work together, and make new neurological passageways, that are sent out all over the body to help create focus, comprehension, and organization.
Dwyer explained once your brain is organized and working correctly, thatís when the focus will start falling into place.
Dwyer says not only did her program help children who couldnít sit still in the classroom focus better, but they also went from making Dís on their report cards to making Aís.
She also helps the elderly with fall risk build core strength, in order to walk and find their balance again.
