Whether you're a child or an adult, ADHD can cause impulsiveness, trouble with life management, restlessness, and other symptoms – all of which can take a serious toll on the mind, body, and emotional well-being of the people who suffer from ADHD. The Center for NeuroPotential offers neurofeedback ADHD treatment in New Haven. Neurofeedback, by itself or with psychological and medication therapy, can be a life-changer!
A lot of people with ADHD have tried counseling and different medications, but they feel that they have never gotten to the root of their problem. That's when they typically ask about neurofeedback.
How Does Neurofeedback Help ADHD?
The idea of neurofeedback is to show the brain a mirror of itself and provide it with feedback that gives it subtle cues, auditorily, visually, or both. This feedback allows the brain to self-correct. A computer program is used to train the brain of patients with ADHD. This computer program can help them shift their thinking into more functional patterns.
Neurofeedback is a very exciting breakthrough in modern medicine as there is no medicine involved, and it is completely non-invasive. Who knew that such a widespread problem could be treated so easily!
At the Center for NeuroPotential, we treat ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, and other psychological disorders with neurofeedback. Although neurofeedback treatment may seem too good to be true to many, it isn't magic. All we do is harness the power of the brain to correct itself, as it does so naturally.
ADHD Neurofeedback Treatment for Children
For children, we can use attention training neurofeedback to help them focus. Children also undergo brain-training via a computer program, but they also wear a helmet. When electrodes in this helmet send concentrating brainwaves to the computer, the computer rewards the child by showing them something that they like. This positive feedback trains the brain to focus – something that is not easy or everyone!
What is Neurofeedback Like?
For someone who has difficulty with focus, it's the difference between flipping the switch in your brain and having a lever that takes a lot of effort and strength to push down. With the latter, it's not automatic, and it's very difficult. That's why we need to train the brain with exercises to make it happen.
Study after study has shown that neurofeedback treatment for children with ADHD increases attention levels, decreases activity levels, decreases impulsivity, and increases executive function. What is an executive function?
Executive function involves how people plan things, how they get themselves organized, their time management, and making sure that what has to be done gets done. Both children and adults who have started neurofeedback report that their concentration improves significantly.
