BRAIN BALANCE OF TULSA

6022 S. Yale Ave.
Kingspointe Village
Tulsa, OK 74135

www.brainbalancecenters.com

When you or someone in your family is struggling with cognitive or behavioral issues, it doesn’t take long to feel frustrated and limited by the established medical approaches.

We know because we’ve been there. We’re parents who have gotten the diagnosis and realized it doesn’t come with an action plan. We’ve been given the medication and coping strategies and wondered if it can ever get better than this. We know what it’s like to be searching for better answers.
So with Brain Balance, we’re changing the game. We’ve made it our mission to help frustrated families by offering an alternative: addressing the underlying causes of the symptoms. Our holistic programming incorporates learnings from cognitive, behavioral, and nutrition fields—an integrated approach that is literally redefining what’s possible.


CLARK YOUTH THEATRE’S PENGUIN PROJECT

Now in our seventh year, the Penguin Project at Clark Youth Theatre offers not only theatre, but also fun and friends! Artists with disabilities and their volunteer peer mentors gather each year to present a fully staged musical like Aladdin, Jr., The Music Man, Jr., Seussical, Jr., The Little Mermaid, Jr., or The Lion King, Jr.! No previous experience required, just a willingness to show up and participate in the fun. Weekly rehearsals culminate in a full performance in the spring or early summer.

Artists and Mentors should be ages 10 and up, with some exceptions if space is available in the program, and parents are very welcome to attend – we love our parent volunteers! During the 2020-2021 season, our Penguin Project work will be both online and socially distanced, in person in the Park surrounding Clark Youth Theatre. Full participation is allowed either way – we will have filmed and live portions of our showcase production this year!

Don’t forget Clark Youth Theatre for all of your youth theatre programming needs! In addition to the Penguin Project, we offer a full range of free-to-participate theatre productions, Saturday Classes, Homeschool Classes on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 11 weeks of Summer, Fall and Spring Break Camp!  For more information, call 918-596-1412 or visit www.clarkyouththeatre.com.

Eastern Oklahoma Ear, Nose & Throat is the oldest and largest group of  ENT physicians in the eastern side of Oklahoma, southern Kansas and southwestern Arkansas. Our physicians and have been caring for Tulsa Kids for almost 50 years!

ENTs Treat the Fundamental Functions of Life

Imagine a singer not being able to sing, or you not being able to hear beautiful music. Imagine not being able to smell the earth after a spring rain, or not being able to taste and enjoy your favorite holiday meal.

These are some of the fundamental functions in your child’s life that make living so rich and wonderful. Yet when one or more of these functions no longer work the way they should, living and learning may be diminished or normal development  jeopardized.

Hearing, breathing, enlarged tonsils, sleep issues, allergies and sinus diseases are just some of the conditions that the physicians at Eastern Oklahoma Ear, Nose & Throat physicians treat in children. Professionally, ENT specialists are called “otolaryngologists” but it’s easier just to say “ENT.”*

Eastern Oklahoma Ear, Nose & Throat has the breadth of skills to handle your children’s ENT needs, and we look forward to meeting you should the need for an ENT arise among your  family members.

At each Boys & Girls Club, kids and adults alike find the love and acceptance they need to have Great Futures!
