Non-invasive, neurofeedback aims to train the brain with positive feedback when the brain produces efficient activity and telling the brain when it is inefficient.
EEG neurofeedback is an advanced form of biofeedback training that applies sensors to the scalp and reads brain activity. We can assess to see where the brain is functioning poorly or inefficiently, and re-train the brain in specific areas to run smoothly. It is like getting a car tuned by the mechanic. This means your child’s brain will work better after 10 to 30 sessions of training (each session is 30 minutes long). Neurofeedback is particularly helpful with neurological conditions such as autism, ADHD, down’s syndrome, psychosis, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety and anger management. Neurofeedback is non-invasive with no side effects, easy to learn by the child, and is used with children as young as five years of age.
This is the latest innovation in neuroscience that is providing real outcomes for children with traditionally hard to treat conditions. In regards to autism, neurofeedback has achieved Level 3 efficacy based on current scientific evidence. Of the 23 scientific studies on neurofeedback, every single one has demonstrated a positive result with autism cases from children to adults, even with small sample sizes.
