Neurofeedback - An Alternative to Medication
Neurofeedback is a form of therapy that helps children change their own brain functioning without medication. It is a painless and noninvasive procedure that records brain waves and gives feedback to the child about their brain activity by means of a “video game.” Children can win the video game by increasing desirable brain wave frequencies.
Training in this modality is recommended 2-3 times a week. However, the commitment pays off: results are often seen more quickly than in traditional talk therapy and new brain patterns yield long-lasting results. Neurofeedback has been used to ease ADHD, autism, anxiety and depression. Please click here for research articles related to neurofeedback (EEGInfo).
