The Goodale School Incorporates Cameron Allen’s Functional Neuro Program
The Goodale School and Recovery Community, a non-profit therapeutic boarding school for 14- to 17-year old boys struggling with substance use and co-occurring disorders, is partnering with Cameron Allen and Dr. JoJo Yonce, DC, BCN, to offer their students Allen & Yonce’s Functional Neuro Program, which includes testing, assessments and a variety of different therapies to help regulate how the brain functions.
Through a four-step, functional neuro assessment, followed by the creation of a neuro timeline, including any developmental or emotional events and patterns that may have contributed to shaping the individual’s neurology, Allen and Yonce are able to create a strategy targeting their four pillars of neural integration: sensory, relationships, emotional capacity and cognition.
When the brain experiences a delay in the development of any of the pillars, it can cause decreased cognitive and emotional resiliency resulting in difficulty in academics, relationships or vocation. Allen and Yonce use neuro therapies such as neurofeedback, virtual reality therapies, heart rate variability biofeedback and audio-visual entrainment, to create a stable platform for brain function.
With 13 years of experience in the study of neuroimaging and the practice of brain-based interventions, Allen has researched and co-authored studies evaluating interventions for addictions and neurodevelopmental delays. Dr. Yonce, board-certified in neurofeedback and a certified mentor for the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) board certification process, helps train other practitioners to become board certified in neurofeedback.
