Neural Pathway Integration

  • Sensory Integration
  • Emotional Regulation Training
  • Mindfulness Training
  • Emotional Intelligence Reporting

It trains the brain and body to remain calm. It works to build and strengthen neurological pathways in the brain that contribute to focus, attention, relaxation and de-escalation, while rewarding behaviours that are important for self-control and emotional regulation.

Behaviours that we usually recognize in children or teens that may be struggling:

  • Unable to calm down effectively.
  • Quickly becomes upset or angry without the ability to understand why.
  • Live in their own little world.
  • Not listening.
  • Not following through on simple tasks.
  • Does not respond to time-outs or consequences.
  • Argue or disruptive behaviours.
  • Resists most things.
  • Deadlines are never met.
  • Poor choices with friends

The Bayridge Kids Program Is Not Another Parenting Style.

Participants use a variety of training circuits in each session, which are fun, challenging and effective. The circuits are used in a fun game-like environment to help children understand and interact with the world around them.


Our program can help all kids and teens!

Circuit 1 - Sensory Integration This circuit incorporates multiple senses at once, including the visual, vestibular, fine/gross motor, and auditory systems, to build brain connectivity and resilience. Impulse control and action inhibition are trained in sensory integration. We utilize a hover board, laser targets, drones, and other fun pieces of technology to get the kids engaged.

Circuit 2 - Emotional Regulation Training Here kids train to go from highly excited and anxious states to consistently calm and focused behaviour. This repetition is highly strategic and methodical, but in an incredibly entertaining modality. We utilize a trampoline to simulate what the body goes through in situations of emotional escalation and then a Heart Rate Variability (bio feedback) video game to train the child to consistently calm back down.

Circuit3 - Mindfulness Training Through guided meditation, which is also assisted by providing the child's brain with specific neurological frequencies, children learn to truly understand what their body is doing during states of arousal and escalation right back down to a calm meditation state. Subsequently, with training the child gains the tools to self-regulate in the future on their own.

Circuit 4- Emotional Intelligence Reporting This form of self-reporting is a valuable skill that teaches and allows the child to understand not only what they are feeling, but also why they are feeling a certain emotion. Ultimately, this circuit truly empowers the child as they understand that they have the power to change their emotional states.

  • Customized for Each Child’s Needs
  • Research-based and doctor recommended.
  • Personal progress meetings with parents.
  • Individual post-follow-up with the program director.

Why We Created the Bayridge Kids Program

Parenting is both the most rewarding and most difficult task of life.

To create another human being then nurture them to become a wonderful loving person is perhaps our greatest accomplishment.

But what about the kids & families that need a different set of strategies to succeed?

Read What Our Parents Have To Say

Parenting A Child That Is Struggling Is Difficult. Period.

It can feel like you're all alone. It can feel like you've tried everything and nothing works.

You Can Feel Drained, Exhausted, And Hopeless.

Why Does All The Attention Go To The Disruptive Child?

We as parents begin to turn on each other as one of us wants to be tougher and the other wants to just do whatever needs to be done to stop another argument.

Not to mention how our other children seem to become invisible and lost in the family drama.

It is not fair!

"I'm so frustrated and exhausted that I sometimes just want to walk away or sit down and cry!"

We Understand.

We Know Other Parents Feel The Same.

Bayridge Kids believe that 100% of parents want the best for their child. But likely need help for them reach their full potential. The Bayridge Kids program not only coach and support parents, but we help the kids change.

When a family begins the Bayridge Kids program we usually hear similar comments:

“What kind of a person actually doesn’t like their own child?”

“What is going to become of my child!”

“I am a terrible parent?”

It can get better. We're Here to Help.

Child's Success: It Must be Measurable.

Bayridge Kids Program Core Principles
  • We believe your child's brain can heal itself through making new or stronger neurological connections.
  • We believe that if we focus on specific executive functions, we can turn sawdust trails into six lane highways.
  • We do this by engaging areas of the child's brain through specific training
  • To have full engagement with a child it must be fun.
  • It must be scalable in its skill levels
  • It must be measurable

"Just imagine how wonderful it would be to capture the energy of your child's mind in order to channel it towards academics and success."

"Most of us parents do not want to fail our children. We sincerely want to do what-ever it takes to give our children not only an advantage but a great foundation for a great life."

What would it be like if there was more peace in your home? Just think of what it would be like to no longer worry that your child will be able to enjoy a full social life. Think of what it would be like to actually be confident in knowing how to develop effective strategies to help your child.

Success Stories

Parent Testimonials

"My son did the NPI program with Nathan and had an absolute blast. He loved learning to ride the hoverboard and I was able to watch him successfully navigate a seadoo in a video game all through controlling his breathing while learning to stay calm.

The best part of the program was that my son was learning critical skills to manage his emotions in a fun and interactive way that kept him engaged."


"The NPI program at Bayridge was a unique and challenging program for my son.

We sought out services at Bayridge, because he was having difficulty remaining or returning to calm in various situations.

We found everyone welcoming and very accommodating to our needs.

My son's therapist Nathan used many strategies including technologically based games to make each session fun, while he was learning to gain better control over his body. Since the 12-week program my son does admit that the NPI program "helped with calming down and keeping hands to myself easier." So far, the new school year is going great."


"Hi Nathan, We are writing a quick email to let you know how happy we are to have had you include our son in your Neural Pathways Integration program.

He was hesitant and I thought he might be too much of a challenge.

He has gained confidence, and self control from attending the Bayridge Kids program.

We couldn't be happier. We were so excited to let you know, Jake has NEVER attended camp, his anxiety got the best of him and missed out on many summers, however, after working hard with you he attended for the first time this summer and his words "why didn't I go sooner" was a proud moment in our lives to see that growth."

Kimberly & Will
