Neurofeedback for ADHD


Hello Mark,

Just curious if you have any knowledge about Neurofeedback, EEG and HEG and it's effectiveness.

Thanks!

D.Z.

Hi D.,

I do know that Neurofeedback can train the ADHD kid to alter his brain functioning so that he daydreams less and pays attention more (through the use of special software and computer enhanced techniques which allow him to monitor his progress in a videogame format).

One of my adolescent clients who tried this couldn't sit still for his Neurofeedback sessions at first. After about the third session he began to enjoy the sessions. By about his tenth session he was more attentive at home and less oppositional. Within six-months his reading and math scores had progressed one grade level.

He continues to make grade-appropriate progress in school, but does have occasional setbacks. He goes back periodically for booster sessions.

So Neurofeedback is a cool adjunct to the implementation of appropriate parenting strategies for ODD kids. However, it should not be used in lieu of these strategies or as a sole treatment modality. LEARN MORE
