What is Brainfit Kids?

Optimising children's lives with their minds and bodies

In a nutshell, Brainfit Kids is our proprietary program that uses brain-based exercises to optimise movement, learning and social skills in children.

There is a growing need in our society to help children with developmental issues overcome their hurdles. Some would even say that rates of children needing support is reaching epidemic proportions. We need to help our kids and fast. Our children are our future.

And while there’s a wide variety of options available for parents and teachers to help children, there’s never been one quite like Brainfit Kids.

Through Dr. Michelle Scholten’s decades of education, as well as tackling the challenge of raising four children of her own, she saw the missing pieces and started to use them.

Michelle’s own son at 3 years old was showing early signs of autism and she believes that brain balance work is what saved him from the decline into ‘his own little world’ of poor movement patterns, learning struggles and social isolation.

Over the past few years, Michelle has implemented her unique combination of techniques to help children in her community overcome their developmental issues. These are brain-based exercises to enhance the physical movement, mental learning, and social skills in children…and the program works!

While each program produces results, there are different models of program to suit different needs.
