Philosophy of Options Education Center

Everyone has the capacity to learn and change.  At Options Center for Education, effective learning strategies enable students to think and solve problems with optimum success.  If students know how to learn, they can acquire and process information more fully and easily.


At Options, our educational programs are designed to complement the traditional educational process. The emphasis is on learning skills and exercises about how to learn in a lively and active manner that stimulates energy, motivation, and whole-brain learning. When the brain is integrated and the student is more relaxed, learning difficulties or behavioral problems are reduced and or even eliminated.

As a result, students have increased self-esteem and motivation, enjoy positive attitudes toward learning, are able to avoid or reduce stress on their own, and are more aware of their own intelligence and capabilities.  Students develop and maintain essential skills in the learning process that they can then apply in other areas of their daily lives, thus enhancing performance on all levels.


The Options Center provides programs to resolve brain chemistry and brain-mind-emotional integration problems with a unique combination of approaches. 

The primary techniques used at Options are Brain Gym® exerciseshair analysis and nutritional counseling. Brain Gym® consists of a series of exercises designed to help integrate the hemispheres of the brain.  When the brain is integrated and the student is more relaxed, learning difficulties or behavioral problems are reduced and can even be eliminated. A student and his/her parents receive individual classes with Helen.

Workshops for adults are available.
