Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) are common issues for both children and adults. Symptoms may include:
narrow focus on the present moment
lack of attention to details
lack of body awareness and control
prone to distraction
failure to consider the consequences of behavior
difficulty with organization
difficulty with sustained projects and following through with chores
frequent fidgeting or squirming
very active, difficulty sitting still
blurting out answers, not waiting their turn
Individuals with ADHD/ADD often perform poorly in school and in the workplace, even though they may be highly intelligent and creative. These attention issues are often inherited, with the condition appearing in multiple generations of the family.
The most common treatment for ADHD/ADD is medication, but when the medications are stopped, the condition returns. Neurofeedback can be a highly effective alternative because it allows the areas of the brain that control arousal and focus to learn how to self-regulate. Neurofeedback can improve school, sport, and work performance, as well as social skills and self esteem. Unlike medication, the effects of neurofeedback training are often lasting, although occasional "touch-ups" are sometimes necessary in order to maintain the progress.

Neurofeedback is a type of psychotherapy that helps you return your brain to the way it was designed to work. It has been used successfully to help people with a wide variety of problems, including depression, anxiety, ADHD, serious behavior issues, addictions, sleep issues, epilepsy, PTSD, and brain damage from head injuries.
The "neuro" in neurofeedback refers to nerves and the nervous system because neurofeedback measures the electrical activity of the nerves in your brain. "Feedback" refers to the visual, auditory, or tactile information (in other words, feedback) that a neurofeedback system gives your brain to help it shift its brainwave patterns.
Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback applied to the brain itself. It uses the brain’s natural abilities to learn in order to help it function more efficiently. ...continue reading →
