ADD / ADHD

ADD / ADHD is the most common neurobehavioral disorder of childhood. If not treated properly, difficulties continue through adult life.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently placed Neurofeedback in the top treatment tier as having "Best Support" in scientific research for treatment of ADHD without medication.

Attention issues cannot be simply confined to the diagnosis of ADD or ADHD. Even mild attention issues can decrease productivity, harm the learning process and get in the way of daily life. Attention issues are not a laziness problem, nor are they a psychological problem - they are a brain problem. With attention issues, we clearly see decreased activation in the brain's attention networks. Neurofeedback can be used to increase this activation and get the brain's attention networks to work better.

Attention disorders such as ADD and ADHD are some of the most misunderstood issues with brain function. It is not a disease.

There are different Subtypes of ADD that require different treatment approaches. Some subtypes are not helped at all by stimulant medication...

All Subtypes of Attention Disorders are characterized by under-activation of the brain. This is especially prevalent in the lower frequencies and frontal lobes.

  • Difficulty staying focused
  • Easily distracted
  • High activity levels
  • Overly Impulsive
  • Difficulty staying organized
  • Difficulty regulating emotions

  • Loss of appetite
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Potential cardiac risks
  • Personality changes
  • Addiction & use of illicit drugs
  • Might not provide benefit for specific ADD Subtype

Neurofeedback helps children and adults sustain attention and focus by training their brain to increase normal activity. Once the brain is balanced, all Subtypes of ADD can be corrected.  Unlike stimulant medications, Neurofeedback has NO side-effects and the changes are long-lasting if not permanent.

Stop masking symptoms and treat the core problem using Neurofeedback.

Extensive research shows that people with ADHD have too much slow wave activity. Balancing this activity will have a long-term positive effect on attention, impulsivity, mood, emotional and sleep issues.

Research has shown Neurofeedback treatment to be just as effective (if not more) as stimulant medication in the short term, but without the adverse side effects. Stimulant medication only treats symptoms on a daily basis, so Neurofeedback is much more effective and safe in the long run.
