What is a FOCUS Certified Provider?
FOCUS Certified providers have completed a certification program on working with children and adults with behavioral, learning, socialization, and developmental challenges. The series trains on the developmental trajectory of childhood and the clinical implications of stress and its impact on the developing brain. This series assists the practicing chiropractor to integrate the clinical pieces of the puzzle to support families impacted by behavioral, learning, and socialization challenges to living a better expression of life.

The Brain Blossom Program™ is an online, at home, brain and body exercise and educational program
Who can benefit from the Brain Blossom Program™?
Everybody! The program is designed to reduce stress and deflective tendencies in order to help individuals engage in, communicate with, learn from, and enjoy their world. The only requirement is a partner to work with to administer some of the games!
Why the Brain Blossom Program™?
Think of development like a flower, as it grows from a seed, everything that happens around it has an impact on what it will be when it’s fully grown. Human development is much the same. Our environments can greatly impact our most basic functions, like the way we move our body, communicate with language, and use our sensory systems. These impacted functions are what we at the Brain Blossom Program™ call Deflective Behaviors™ and they can take many forms. Deflective Behaviors™ can stem from many combinations of factors, but ultimately, they change the way a person learns, behaves, communicates, and socializes. The Brain Blossom Program™ is designed to give specific body and brain games to help a person move on from their Deflective Behaviors™ to a healthier form of processing their environment.
5 Stages of the Brain Blossom Program™
Based on the individual’s results of the initial evaluation they will be placed in one of five stages.
Games that are targeted toward developing and practicing skills and movements are common in early life.
Games that are targeted towards developing and practicing skills from early life as well as integrating gross motor and fine motor function.
Games that are targeted towards gross motor, fine motor, cross body, core, and eye coordination as well as spatial awareness integration.
Games that are targeted towards increased coordination of the eyes, mental imagery games, as well as increasing complexity in multi-sensory and simultaneous processing games.
Games that are targeted toward the fast-paced, complex, simultaneous body, brain, and eye coordination coupled with greater cognitive challenges.
