Did you know that Neurofeedback is a research based treatment for individuals with ADHD? Traditional ADHD treatment has focused on medications. However, in recent years strong research has demonstrated that Neurofeedback achieves equivalent effects as medication. In fact, according the American Pediatric Society Neurofeedback is now a Level 1-Best support intervention for ADHD, meaning that it is considered a best practice treatment for ADHD.
At the Toronto Neurofeedback and Psychotherapy Centre we use QEEG assessments and Neurofeedback to target parts of the brain that develop early in a child’s development. Clients regularly report initial improvements in their child’s attention, followed by improvements in academic performance, social skills, decreased distractibility, improved memory, and decreased impulsivity.
By using QEEG assessments we are able to determine the difference in brain wave activity and observe regions of the brain which may be underactive or overactive. Research has shown that there is a difference in brain waves for children with ADHD. In addition, many empirical studies show changes in brainwaves post treatment as well as changes in behaviour (less aggressive, more cooperative, better communication, improved attention span and improved sensory motor skills.)
