Oak Brook IL ADD/ADHD Treatment Specialist

ADD/ADHD Facts:

  • Anxiety disorders also may be present in as many as 10% to 40% of teens with ADHD. 1
  • 20% to 30% of teens with ADHD have a co-existing mood disorder, such as depression. 2

Brain mapping and testing can illustrate what neural networks are not working as well as they should. Neurofeedback treatment can then be implemented specifically to strengthen the patient’s brain weaknesses.

Treatment response can then be compared to baseline to determine rate of progress.

Studies that have explored neurofeedback as a treatment for ADD symptoms have generally been very positive which has lead the International Society for Neuronal Regulation to classify EEG Neurofeedback as a Level 1 treatment (most effective) for ADD and ADHD.

Neuroscience research has clearly demonstrated that ADD/ADHD is a brain related issue, not merely a problem with “not trying hard enough.” The frontal lobes are most often related to symptoms of ADD and the ADD brain tends to produce too much slow frequency, though not all individuals with ADD have the same exact pattern.

The Training Program

Neurohealth’s 40-minute sessions teach your brain to change itself.

During 40-minute training sessions, you’ll sit in a private room to watch a movie or play a video game. Sensors monitor your brainwaves and connect to a computer. The computer is connected to the screen, telling the screen to display better when your brain is producing more balanced brainwaves. Over the course of the program, your brain learns to stop producing brain patterns causing your symptoms and start performing optimally.

Neuro Fact

Alpha activity – specifically in the right hemisphere of the brain has been shown to boost mood

What Clients Say About Us


Julie W.
Teachers made huge comments on his math skills and behavior. I also saw this at home with understanding of what I said to him registering more with him. I saw this in his eyes: recognition. Fewer outbursts of anger.

Anita M.
I am extremely happy with my son’s treatment outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This treatment has dramatically changed his ability to focus and take initiative. I feel confident that my son’s life has been dramatically enhanced. I can’t express my appreciation fully in words.

Mary B.
Dr. Bonesteel has masterfully, compassionately, and extremely kindly helped me navigate through a history of childhood and marital abuse, a child with twenty years of struggle with life-threatening physical and emotional illness, extended family discord, and disharmony with my child with severe depression. I am blessed to have found Neurohealth Associates.
