The concept of neurodiversity underscores the importance of adopting a holistic and inclusive approach to neurofeedback training. This approach acknowledges and respects the diversity of neurological traits and abilities among individuals. By recognizing the strengths and differences within neurodivergent populations, neurofeedback training can be optimized to promote positive outcomes and enhance overall well-being.

Neurodiversity is a huge part of why the most successful neurofeedback training programs are custom-tailored for each individual. Everyone is different. This includes how our brains work and are affected by external factors. 

Let’s take a look at the most important implications the concept of neurodiversity has had within the realm of neurofeedback training.

Customized Training Programs

Neurodiversity highlights the importance of recognizing and respecting individual differences in neurological traits and abilities. Therefore, neurofeedback training should be tailored to accommodate the unique needs, preferences, and goals of neurodivergent individuals. Training protocols may need to be adjusted based on factors such as sensory sensitivities, processing differences, and cognitive strengths and weaknesses.

Training Program Flexibility

Neurodivergent individuals may respond differently to neurofeedback protocols compared to neurotypical individuals. Therefore, flexibility in selecting and adapting training protocols is essential to optimize effectiveness and accommodate variability in neurodivergent populations. Clinicians should be prepared to modify protocols based on individual responses, preferences, and progress over time.

Focusing on Individual Strengths

Neurodiversity encourages a strengths-based approach to understanding and supporting individuals with diverse neurological profiles. Neurofeedback training can be used to capitalize on neurodivergent individuals’ strengths and abilities, rather than solely focusing on addressing deficits or challenges. For example, training protocols may aim to enhance cognitive strengths, creative thinking, or adaptive coping strategies.


Collaboration & Training

Neurodiversity emphasizes the importance of involving neurodivergent individuals as active participants in their own treatment and decision-making process. Therefore, neurofeedback training should be conducted in collaboration with the individual, taking into account their preferences, feedback, and goals. Empowering neurodivergent individuals to play an active role in their own training can enhance motivation, engagement, and outcomes.

Neurodiversity Awareness

Neurodiversity encompasses a broad range of neurological profiles and conditions, including autism, ADHD, dyslexia, Tourette syndrome, and others. Clinicians should be aware of the diversity within neurodiversity and recognize that different conditions may require different approaches to neurofeedback training. Understanding the specific needs and characteristics of each neurodivergent individual is essential for providing effective and personalized treatment.

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.
