Neurofeedback for ADHD Symptoms
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG Biofeedback, can help improve attention and focus in children, teens and adults. It is a method that has been used for over 50 years.
Neurofeedback for ADHD symptoms is based on the finding that our brain uses certain types of brainwaves, depending on whether we are in a focused state or daydreaming.
The goal of neurofeedback for ADHD is to teach you to produce the brainwave patterns associated with a calm focus.
How do Brainwaves relate to ADHD?
It is common for people with ADHD to show more of the Theta brainwave in the front part of their brain. This pattern is often associated with
- Difficulties with attention
- Impulse control problems
The good news is that brainwaves can be trained so that Theta returns to a typical level. Neurofeedback can train your brain to make less Theta brainwaves so that you are more focused and calm.
At my office I use scientific equipment and software to help your brain learn to use a more effective pattern of brainwaves so that you experience more calm focus.
