Michaela, a mother from USA, like many other parents, has a child diagnosed with ADHD. She has been desperately trying to help him improve with various medications with results never being satisfactory. With no significant improvement, Michaela felt that medication may not be the answer to her son’s problem and started to research Neurofeedback.
ADHD cases are growing high in number with around 11% of children in the United States have been diagnosed with the disorder. With this prevalence of ADHD cases and disappointing results from medications, parents are considering Neurofeedback.
How Neurofeedback Works
Neurofeedback uses real-time display of brainwaves that are monitored by a technician. When the child is within the set parameters of “ideal” brainwaves, the child is rewarded with music, video or game. This promotes focus and attention while pathways are formed in the brain to use this ability in everyday life outside the session.
What makes neurofeedback a promising way to manage ADHD is its lasting effects, providing long term management, an advantage compared to medication.
Parents Are Willing to Take the Risk
Michaela, who has tried Neurofeedback on her son found the results quite impressive. Life at home with her son has improved and he can receive a smaller dose of medication, which is slowly being lowered.
