How Neurofeedback Can Help You
The Washington DC Center for Neurocognitive Excellence (DCNE) provides neurofeedback (NF) because it is a powerful therapy for ADHD – as well as anxiety, depression, and PTSD – for both adults and children. It works by reading and analyzing a person’s brainwaves using sensors and providing auditory and visual cues to help train a person to produce more healthy brain-waves. For many parents and individuals, neurofeedback continues to be a preferred primary or complementary treatment for ADHD due to its impact as well as multiple benefits over traditional treatments.

NF therapy is a non-invasive treatment, without many of the serious side effects that ADHD medications have such as mood swings, insomnia, nausea, stomach upset, and dizziness. It is a short term treatment, requiring as little as 4-6 months to change symptoms long-term or permanently – rather than years or a lifetime of medications adherence. Treatment benefits impact academics, work performance, relationships, ability to relax and enjoy activities, and more.
Numerous sources and clients have attested to its efficacy including the American Psychological Association (APA.org):
“Psychologist J. Monastra and colleagues supplemented a well-documented treatment program (Ritalin plus special training for parents) by giving some treated children neurofeedback on top of the medical and parental intervention. The traditional treatment was initially very effective, but when treated children were later taken off Ritalin, only those who had also received neurofeedback were able to maintain the improvements they had shown.”
