The benefits of getting both parts of your brain working together can happen with just a few midline exercises that are easy and only take a few minutes.
Let's Get Started
Midline Exercises (MLE)
By practicing several simple exercises, we can help the left and right sides of our brain work and communicate better. These exercises were created as a result of Dr. Dustow's research, which has enabled children and adults of all ages to improve focus within minutes. Perfect for an office setting, classroom or at home.
Classes & Consultations
Dr. Dustow offers virtual classes for preschool-age children on the autism spectrum through the nonprofit Cornerstone Educational Preschool, as well as private, individual video and phone consultations for youth, families and their support team. Custom plans are designed around your needs following an initial discussion.
