Neurofeedback therapy for ADHD

ADHD: Beyond Medication. Discover the Power of Neurofeedback Training.

Does Your Child Struggle with ADHD and Behavior Problems?

Neurofeedback is an innovative technology which harnesses the brain’s neuroplasticity – its ability to change itself – in order to bring about improvement in a variety of symptoms which can interfere with life satisfaction. This non-medicine approach trains the brain to function optimally, thus improving attention, mood, learning ability and more.

Having a child with attention issues, impulsivity, behavior problems and hyperactivity is difficult and stressful, not only for your child but also for the entire family.

You may be exhausted from:

  • Being hypervigilant about your child’s behavior
  • Searching for answers or ways to better understand your child
  • Trying to balance the attention needs of a child with ADHD with other siblings
  • Expending an excessive level of energy needed to keep up with your child
  • Watching your child struggle in school and socially
  • Tuning into your child’s moods

You may have seen doctors, specialists, and mental health professionals, read books, researched online and attended lectures searching for answers.

Could neurofeedback be the solution?

Surveys of health professionals using neurofeedback estimate that over 85% of their clients successfully learn to focus, regulate behavior, and decrease impulsivity when they train on a consistent schedule.

How does neurofeedback help attention?

In many instances, people with ADHD show a pattern of slow wave activity in the brain. Neurofeedback helps regulate, speed up and stabilize this activity. In the process it calms the person and, with repetition, changes the brain to remain there without medication.

Improvement occurs because there’s been an actual change in the brain (not just a change in behavior brought on from the temporary effect of medication). These changes tend to hold once the new patterns are firmly established. Just like riding a bike, once we learn a new pattern, we’re unlikely to forget it.

Improve Focus, Attention, and Emotional Regulation with Neurofeedback for ADHD.

What’s involved in the training?

Doing neurofeedback is similar to playing a video game, which is one reason kids generally enjoy doing it. The difference is that they move the game forward with their mind instead of a joystick. It’s that “brain power” activity that teaches their brain new, healthier patterns.

Is it ADD/ADHD or something else?

ADD/ADHD is often characterized by symptoms like inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. However, these symptoms can also be indicative of other conditions, such as learning disabilities or processing problems. This overlap can lead to misdiagnoses and inappropriate treatments.

Children and adults with a learning disability or processing disorder may exhibit disorganization, fidgeting, difficulty following instructions, or social problems. These symptoms are often erroneously blamed on ADD/ADHD. If it truly is ADD/ADHD, stimulant medications may significantly improve the symptoms. However, when medication fails, the problem could be that some type of processing or learning issue is involved.

Specialized brain mapping
Accurate diagnosis that goes beyond the typical diagnostic checklist can eliminate putting someone on medications unnecessarily. This is where our specialized brain mapping makes a difference, by identifying both attentional and processing markers in the brain. These markers help tell the story about what in the brain is driving your child’s problem.

Struggling 8th Grader Matures, Makes Honor Roll in Five Months
14-year-old Sai was making C’s and D’s. He had trouble understanding what he read. His vocabulary and maturity were that of someone two years younger. His parents had him evaluated by a psychologist who suspected something wasn’t right in the way the parts of his brain were communicating with one another. She recommended he try neurofeedback training at the Center for Brain Training. After five months of training, not only did he start doing homework without assistance, but he made the honor roll for the first time in his life.

He also seemed to feel at peace.” Then other small changes occurred. Without being asked, he cleaned his room and closet and began keeping them tidy without prompting.

“I regularly recommend the Center for Brain Training to other parents because neurofeedback has made such a huge impact on my child’s life. I’ve come to depend on everyone there because they help me attack whatever is going on at the moment. They are part of my support system. I am so thankful I found the center. I feel like they’re family.”

After eight sessions my son was less prone to anger and emotional outbursts, more communicative and calmer. He now spends his free time working on cars (and not playing video games). He and I have more of a normal father-son relationship. I’m amazed by the power of Bradley’s neurofeedback training. It’s been incredible, a miracle.
