About Our Learning and Behavior Support Programs

At Apex Brain Centers, we understand that each individual has unique learning and behavioral needs. Our Learning and Behavior Support Programs are designed to address these needs by applying neuroscientific principles that enhance cognitive functions critical for learning and behavior management.

These programs are ideal for children, adolescents, and adults who face challenges in academic environments, struggle with behavioral issues, or simply wish to improve their cognitive skills for better performance in everyday tasks. By integrating techniques such as cognitive training, behavioral modification, and biofeedback, we provide comprehensive support that leads to real and lasting changes.

Our approach is holistic and tailored, focusing on the underlying cognitive functions that support learning and behavior, such as attention, memory, and emotional regulation. This not only helps improve immediate academic and behavioral outcomes but also builds a foundation for long-term cognitive health.

Apex Brain Centers specialize in treating:

Addiction Recovery

We use applied neuroscience to "rewire" the areas of the brain controlling addiction and substance use disorders.


Disorders of attention, collectively known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), cause an inability to attend to situations, focus on the task at hand, and effectively shift attention between tasks.


We use high-intensity neurological rehabilitation to help stroke survivors relearn lost skills, improve their quality of life, and regain independence.

How Brain Rehabilitation & Training Works for Learning and Behavior

The APEX Brain Centers Approach Has Helped Thousands Regain Function & Quality of Life


Every patient's brain rehabilitation and training journey begins with the creation of an individualized care plan by our board-certified physicians and is informed by the following:

  • Lab Work to measure internal biochemistry and establish a metabolic baseline.
  • Cognitive Testing to evaluate attention, focus, memory, impulse control, and other critical cognitive abilities.
  • Comprehensive History including medical history, nutrition questionnaires, and lifestyle questions.

Neurological Rehabilitation

All APEX intensive rehabilitation programs combine treatment frequency, repetition, and duration multiple times per day to drive optimal patient outcomes.

  • Diagnostic Testing to measure internal biochemistry and establish a metabolic baseline.
  • Rehabilitation Modalities to evaluate attention, focus, memory, impulse control, and other critical cognitive abilities.
  • Metabolic and Nutritional Therapy to identify and correct nutritional deficiencies and optimize nutritional supplementation.


Patients' rehabilitation and training care plans continue as long as needed through a combination of the following distance and in-person treatment elements.

  • Retesting to continue to monitor internal biochemistry and measure progress.
  • Nutrition therapy through supplements and education to optimize health and cognitive performance.
  • At-home training includes exercises, therapies, and personalized strategies for each individual.
