A clear and focused mind is crucial to learning, developing social skills, and achieving academic success.
Children with ADD and ADHD struggle with schoolwork, peer relationships, and behavioral disciplines. Due to their attention disorder, even smart kids could have poor scores at school.
Although extensive research and clinical trials have been focusing on medications to treat ADD & ADHD, parents of children diagnosed with ADD and people who are struggling with difficulty concentrating, are looking for natural, non-drug therapies to improve their cognitive and executive brain function. The good news is that there are many options for treating ADD/ADHD naturally; one of them is neurofeedback.
QEEG Guided Neurofeedback – Normalize and Optimize Brain Functions
The brain is an energetic powerhouse and the brain electronic activities (brain waves) support the various functions of the brain, including memory, concentration, planning, motivation, and mood regulation.
QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram) helps visually map out the areas of the brain that have abnormal activities that contribute to the clinical symptoms.
Because the brain has a fantastic ability to change, known as neuroplasticity, when feedback, signaling the abnormality, is given to the brain, the brain will adjust itself to mitigate the signals. When the feedback is given repetitively to the brain (known as brain training) pertaining to “right” and “wrong” activities, it develops new circuits between neurons.
Neurofeedback, endorsed by both the FDA and American Pediatrics Academy, is an effective non-drug and non-invasive brain training therapy. Safe and time-tested, Neurofeedback is clinically proven to treat brain disorders like attention deficit disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, traumatic brain injury, and concussion.
A Calmer, Clearer and Focused Mind
A well-designed study of neurofeedback treatment for ADHD (published in 2009, the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry) indicated that neurofeedback treatment yielded significant reductions in parents’ and teachers’ ratings of core ADHD symptoms.
Other studies showed that neurofeedback may ease not only the symptoms of attention-deficit disorder but also headaches, learning difficulties, insomnia, anxiety, and depression.
After the neurofeedback sessions, the subjects often perform better on evaluations of their attention and intelligence.
Children with concussions often suffer from headaches when reading or doing schoolwork on the computer. Neurofeedback training can help alleviate these symptoms.
In the US, more than 700 groups are using Neurobiofeedback to treat ADHD, according to the Association of Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback.
For students who do not have any cognitive or mood disorders, Neurofeedback helps optimize their brain functions, enhance their permanence in academics and sports, reduce stress, and promote the wellbeing of body and mind.
