Whitmire resident Trey Cranford will throw the first pitch at a baseball drive Friday.
Cranford was born with Trichothiodystrophy, or TTD in simpler terms, and has been taking classes at a Brain Balance Center in Greenville.
Cranford deals with his disability and retrains his brain essentially.
The young and energetic boy will throw the first pitch for the Greenville Drive at 7 p.m. at Fluor Field.
Brain Balance is a learning center for children with neurobehavioral disorders, which would include ADD, ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Aspergers, Sensory Intergration and Processing Disorders. Recent research has shown that children with these disorders deal with a functional disconnect between the two hemispheres of the brain, which results in a lack of communication from one hemisphere to the other. Our goal is to build up the weaker hemisphere by designing an individual program geared towards each child’s individual needs. Each program includes different types of sensory motor, cognitive, and nutritional activites that are individually determined.
