You may have heard of ‘brain training’ to boost intelligence or memory. If your child has ADHD, there’s a type of brain training some researchers think may improve focus and help other ADHD symptoms too. It’s called neurofeedback or EEG biofeedback.
Neurofeedback does not interfere with medication your child may already be taking. We will work with your doctor and do not advise your child stop taking medication without a doctor’s consent. But neurofeedback can reduce or possibly eliminate the need for medication and is an excellent alternative treatment for ADHD because it causes no harm or pain, is non-invasive and the results are long term. We provide neurofeedback services for ages 6 and up (including adults!).
Parents often tell us they notice their child is calmer and better able to control their emotions after beginning neurofeedback treatment. And teachers notice, too. They ask parents, “What changed at home?”
There are four different brainwave imbalances seen in individuals with ADHD. Imbalance of Theta, Slow Alpha, and Beta cause significant problems. A quantitative EEG assessment (brain map) is needed to find the area of the brain that needs training.
