While neurofeedback is not considered a treatment or therapy and does not diagnose, treat or cure any particular disorder, there is a growing recognition that it is useful for a really wide variety of concerns, including ADD.
As of November of 2012, the American Pediatric Academy has endorsed neurofeedback aka EEG biofeedback as a “Level 1/Best Support” treatment for children with ADHD. Furthermore, the APA has equated neurofeedback with medication in terms of efficacy for resolving ADHD.
If neurofeedback is equated with medication for efficacy of resolving ADHD, why not try it? With NeurOptimal we use a non linear approach which allows the brain to be in charge, rather than the brain being pushed in any particular direction. This helps to eliminate the risk of side effects.
Neurofeedback can be used as a stand alone approach or in conjunction with other approaches, including medications, as needed.
