Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

Neurofeedback and Attention Deficit Disorders: ADD and ADHD

Contemporary American society is plagued by attention disorders. Unfortunately, there is no agreed-upon cause or treatment for such problems. They can affect adults as well as children and can manifest in a variety of ways. The two conditions that are most commonly discussed are Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

More than just the ability to “pay attention,” it is likely that ADD and ADHD involve many physiological functions. Today the standard treatment is medication, but many people experience side effects or wish to reduce their (or their child’s) dependence on chemical substances.

While there is much yet to learn about these challenges to individuals and families, studies have shown that attention disorders respond positively to neurofeedback. (Researchers note that the rate of neurofeedback progress among children is individual, but those who fail to progress should be assessed for complicating factors, such as birth trauma, heavy metal toxicity, traumatic brain injury or other conditions.)

Whether or not a child has been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD, brain training helps to restore focus, improve academic performance and reduce dependence on prescribed medications. It can also reduce behavioral problems often associated with attention disorders, such as uncontrolled anger, fighting, irritability and lack of empathy. Plus, the learning that happens during neurofeedback is long-lasting.
