Neurofeedback- A Cutting Edge ADHD Treatment

neurofeedback for ADHDAttention 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).

What is Neurofeedback?

What is Neurofeedback?Neurofeedback is a type of brain training or biofeedback that uses  real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography (EEG)- to train a client to regulate their own brain waves. Neurofeedback is approaching the mainstream- this article in the Washington Post about neurofeedback extols it’s virtues as an adjunct treatment for a wide variety of brain disorders, including PTSD, pain and anxiety.

A neurofeedback session is a bit like playing a video game with your brain. EEG (electoencephlograph) Sensors are placed on the scalp to measure electrical activity, with measurements displayed using video displays or sound. Clients can learn over time and repeated sessions to self- adjust brainwaves back into the normal range, resulting in a reduction of emotional or neurological symptoms.

For those who find it difficult to come into the office regularly for sessions, neurofeedback is also available as a home care therapy. Click here for more information on neurofeedback training at home.
