Neurofeedback training can be beneficial for individuals with ADHD by targeting specific brainwave patterns associated with attention, focus, impulse control, and executive functioning. Neurofeedback training offers a solid approach for people with ADHD by working with brainwave patterns and cognitive processes implicated in the disorder. By promoting things like self-regulation, attentional control, and executive functioning, neurofeedback can help individuals with ADHD improve their symptoms, enhance their cognitive abilities, and achieve better overall functioning and well-being.

Let’s take a quick look at how exactly neurofeedback training helps manage the symptoms associated with ADHD.

Improving Attention and Focus

Neurofeedback training targets brainwave patterns, particularly in the theta (4-8 Hz) and beta (12-30 Hz) frequency bands, associated with attentional control and sustained focus. By providing real-time feedback on brainwave activity and rewarding desirable patterns, neurofeedback helps individuals learn to increase attentional stability and maintain focus over time.

Impulsivity Control

Individuals with ADHD often struggle with impulsivity, difficulty inhibiting inappropriate responses, and regulating behavioral impulses. Neurofeedback training targets brainwave patterns associated with inhibitory control, such as beta activity in frontal regions of the brain, to help reduce impulsivity and improve self-regulation.

Enhancing Executive Functions

Executive functions, such as planning, organization, problem-solving, and cognitive flexibility, are often impaired in individuals with ADHD. Neurofeedback training targets brainwave patterns associated with executive functioning skills, helping individuals improve cognitive control, decision-making, and adaptive behavior.

Strengthening Self-Regulation

Neurofeedback training teaches individuals with ADHD to self-regulate their brainwave activity and physiological responses. By providing real-time feedback on brainwave patterns associated with attention and impulse control, individuals learn to modulate their brain activity and regulate their cognitive and behavioral responses more effectively.

Reducing Hyperactivity

Hyperactivity is a common symptom of ADHD, characterized by excessive motor activity, restlessness, and fidgeting. Neurofeedback training aims to reduce hyperactivity by targeting brainwave patterns associated with arousal and motor control, helping individuals achieve a more balanced and regulated state of arousal.

Enhancing Academic Performance

By improving attention, focus, and executive functioning skills, neurofeedback training can help individuals with ADHD perform better academically. Studies have shown that neurofeedback can lead to improvements in academic achievement, classroom behavior, and overall school performance in children and adolescents with ADHD.

Reducing Medication Dependency

Neurofeedback training may offer an alternative or adjunctive treatment option for individuals with ADHD who prefer non-pharmacological interventions or wish to reduce their dependence on medication. Some individuals may experience long-lasting benefits from neurofeedback that persist even after discontinuing medication.

Individualized Training Plans

Neurofeedback training can be tailored to the specific needs and symptoms of each individual with ADHD. By customizing training protocols based on the individual’s unique brainwave patterns and cognitive profile, neurofeedback can provide personalized treatment that addresses the underlying neurophysiological dysregulations associated with ADHD.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Julia 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.


Overall, excellent experience. Very happy with Dr B and staff is wonderful. We feel like we have our family life back!


I am very thankful this technology was available for my training. I was extremely satisfied with all aspects of my training protocols.
