Reactivity Problems: Tantrums and emotional overreactions

Tantrums are one of the most common forms of “problem behavior” in young children but tend to decrease in frequency and intensity as the child grows older. They are not the results of inadequate parenting. For the toddler, tantrums are normal. As the child (and their brain) evolve over time, reactivity should diminished in a fairly consistent manner. Over-reactivity can cause problems with “giving up too easily,” can have a negative impact of family and friend relationships, and eventually become a source of self-esteem issues. Sensory and motivation issues can also co-occur with reactivity problems. Many adults will also feel like they are too reactive to frustration and stress, which can also be associated with anxiety or lack of joy.

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

The cerebrum is the largest part of the brain, accounting for 85 percent of the organ's weight

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 outcomes and feel very fortunate to have encountered Dr. Bonesteel early in my child’s life. This method 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.
