Attention Deficit

Attention Deficit inhibits a person’s ability to concentrate and complete tasks or to fully participate in activities. For children, this can mean poor grades, difficulty maintaining relationships and being subjected to continual criticism and discipline for not paying attention or for acting out.  ADD and ADHD are the most researched disorders that neurofeedback addresses. Over 80 studies support the use of neurofeedback in decreasing symptoms of ADD and ADHD.

Neurofeedback training is highly effective with ADD and ADHD, because it helps to better regulate the brain without the use of drugs. It enables the participant to learn what concentrating feels like. Brain training has been shown to produce lasting effects that are maintained even after training is completed.
