Who Benefits from Neurofeedback?
Experts working with individuals with Special Needs claim that treatment should being as soon as delays are noticed. There is an effective treatment has been around for over 30 years called Neurofeedback. For example research into the value of Neurofeedback has shown that children who receive Neurofeedback treatment improved and experienced a reduction in ASD symptons of close to 60% as rate by the parents whose children were involved in a study. Neurofeedback calms the constant anxiety that goes along with ASD. It allows the child to become aware of the world around them. Eye contact, language, social skills, play and other deficits slowly evolve into useful functions.
During neurofeedback the brain’s electrical impulses are measured and a computer is programmed to give feedback when the brainwave patterns are improving. Our clients play a video games with their brains. As desirable brainwave activity increases, the video game moves faster. If undesirable brainwave activity interferes, the game is inhibited and action stops. As the brain begins to respond to the cues it is given, the learning of new brainwave patterns takes place.
