Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed childhood neurological disorder. Children with ADHD are hyperactive and have low impulse control, and may have trouble paying attention.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as many as 11 percent of children in the United States have been diagnosed with ADHD.
Neurofeedback is a therapy that is increasingly being used to treat ADHD. It is non-invasive and free from side effects, unlike the medications commmonly used to treat this disorder, such as dextroamphetamine (Adderall), or methylphenidate (Ritalin).
