BRAIN BALANCE CENTER TO OPEN IN AUG.CORNELIUS - Brain Balance is slated to open in August in the Fresh Market Shopping Center, bringing a “fresh approach to ADD/HD, Autism spectrum disorder, learning disabilities and more,” according to a news release from the company. It will offer children with neurobehavioral disorders “mutimodal protocols of targeted sensory, motor and cognitive stimulation.”
According to the news release:
Neuroscientists studying childhood neurobehavioral disorders are concluding that children with learning, social and/or behavioral challenges have a functional disconnect. They have no damage or pathologies in their brain, but rather the areas more distant from each other within the brain are not as connected as they should be. Brain Balance gets to the root of a child’s specific challenges by targeting either the right or left hemisphere of their brain with a program of activities that stimulate development.
After seeing the progress made by students in their Greenville, S.C. and Pineville, N.C. centers, Dr. Victoria Naumann, DC and her sister Sylvia Moneti have made it their mission to make Brain Balance available to as many children as possible in the Charlotte region.
As a lead up to the Cornelius Center’s opening, free informational meetings will be held at the Mooresville Hilton Garden Inn July 31 and Aug. 9. Those attending will learn about childhood brain development, function, and the innovative Brain Balance Program. The meetings are open to all, parents, educators, health care professionals and anyone who else who would like to learn more. Register by calling 704-655-1334.
FINGERPRINT SERVICES NOW AT DAVIDSON POSTNET
DAVIDSON - Davidson PostNet is now a contractor with Fieldprint, a company that collects fingerprints for the purpose of identity verification and background investigations on employees and perspective employees at companies which require a high level of security. Companies that use this kind of security include banks, investment firms, defense contractors, and some schools and child care facilities.
Davidson PostNet provides the facility and the personnel to verify the identity, scan the fingerprints, and upload the files to the national database. PostNet staff members do not decide who to print, nor do they collect payment from the individual or the requesting company.
Employees needing fingerprint scans may schedule their appointments online, and then must arrive with the appropriate forms of identification. PostNet staff enter the data, scan the fingerprints, and upload the files. The process takes about 10 minutes.
LKN MUSIC HALL CLOSES
CORNELIUS - The LKN Music Hall closed its doors last week after fewer than 6 months in business, making it another casualty of the Torrence Chapel Road location. The Hall, which took over the space that in recent years has housed Club NV, Synergy, and Club Unleashed, opened in March promising no covers, good dancing, and “grunge” in a good way.
