Neurofeedback Named in The 9 Best Treatments for Children and Adults with ADHD

Neurofeedback Named in The 9 Best Treatments for Children and Adults with ADHD

Posted on: November 19th, 2019 by Neurohealth Associates

Studies confirm that children with ADHD can achieve great symptom control with services like neurofeedback and various behavioral therapies. Many adults, too, successfully use non-medical ADHD therapy in their treatment plans.

Behavioral Therapy for children, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for adults, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for adults were named for addressing symptoms of ADHD in addition to Brain Training or Neurofeedback for addressing not only symptoms, but in a more physiological way than the aforementioned.

Neurofeedback uses brain exercises to reduce impulsivity and increase attentiveness in children and adults with ADHD. By training the brain to emit brain-wave patterns associated with focus, as opposed to those associated with day-dreaming, neurofeedback helps to rein in ADHD symptoms like impulsivity, distractibility, and acting out.

Typically, neurofeedback patients wear an electrode-lined cap while performing a complex cognitive task, such as reading aloud. A computer reads the brain activity then maps the areas of the brain where there is too much or too little brain-wave activity – the theoretical sources of the patient’s ADHD symptoms.

Neurofeedback also helps with various other conditions including: Anxiety, Depression, Emotional Over-Reactions, Motivation Issues, Executive Function (which is sometimes confused with ADHD), and more.

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.
