“We spent thousands of dollars and seven years trying to get answers for our 10-year old son’s aggressive and defiant behaviors. We were given professional diagnoses that ranged from “there’s nothing wrong”, to Oppositional Defiance Disorder, and finally Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). We have tried individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, and medications. Nothing kept him from exhibiting extreme aggression (such as hitting, kicking, biting, and destroying property) on as many as 23 days each month.
I heard about neurofeedback from a friend. I talked to our son’s therapist about it and she recommended the Wholeness Center so that we would have a doctor overseeing the treatments. Having a QEEG of our son’s brain provided us with confidence that the diagnosis of ADHD was correct. Our son completed 40 sessions of neurofeedback. Two months after completing the treatment, the results are still remarkable. We were able to reduce the dosage of medication that our son takes, he is generally aggressive no more than 3 times in a month, and any aggression shown now is much less extreme than it was before.
Our son says neurofeedback was “awesome and painless”. He feels more in control of his temper and it has raised his self-esteem. Dr. Steve Rondeau and the staff were very helpful and answered all of our questions. I wish we had known about this type of treatment years ago! “
