77: Neurofeedback for ADHD

We’re here to shed light on the benefits of neurofeedback for ADHD and how it greatly helps in optimizing cognitive function and promoting self-regulation.


Neurofeedback, which is a natural game changer, can help change the lives of kids diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). However, there are still many people who are unaware of this non-invasive treatment.

That’s why we’re here to shed light on the benefits of neurofeedback for ADHD and how it greatly helps in optimizing cognitive function and promoting self-regulation.

What does ADHD look like in the brain?

It’s important that we understand the mechanisms of what an ADHD brain is like for the reason that it almost occurs across a continuum. Some kids are inattentive but are pleasant and easy to get along with whereas others may be impulsive, moody, emotional and sort of everywhere in between.

And these kids share something in common – a dysregulated brain. We are able to see the pattern of dysregulation through a QEEG brain map which I personally use for diagnostics and for the determination of appropriate treatments and protocols, especially for their neurofeedback.

If you’re wondering what an ADHD brain looks like, try putting your hand into a fist. Your knuckle is the frontal part of the brain – that is the part that looks different in the brain of someone diagnosed with ADHD.

What is neurofeedback and how does it work?

The first step in any treatment is checking. We conduct statistical analysis and do brain checks to look at certain regions of the brain that we suspect to be affected. So if a certain region of the brain isn't working, they limit an individual to do certain things.

Neurofeedback remains to be a mysterious process for most people. Some people think something's coming through the wires but it doesn't. In reality, it’s as simple as reinforcing the brain to produce the appropriate and healthy combination of brainwaves.

Neurofeedback also helps in healing those dealing with traumatic history. And with the number of improvements we’ve seen, it has been a wonderful journey seeing people’s lives change for the better. I’m blessed to be a part of their journey as they experience the many benefits and effects of neurofeedback.

How neurofeedback reduces symptoms of ADHD.

Neurofeedback is likewise great for reducing symptoms of ADHD as it improves one’s attention and focus. When you do neurofeedback, your processing improves, your brain calms down, and your mood improves.

In fact, the American Pediatric Association recommends neurofeedback and says it's a level one intervention, which is as effective as medication, yet not enough people know about it. Moreover, it significantly improves ADHD symptoms like impulse control, hyperactivity and behavioral disinhibition.

Stopping a response is the actual foundation for executive functioning skills. If you can't put the brakes on, how can you do anything else? That’s why it’s important for parents to really follow through the behaviors of their kids and teach them about putting the brakes on. As parents, we have to be their major supporter and reassure them that everything’s going to be okay.

Keep in mind that this is not a quick fix; it’s going to consume a lot of time. But the good thing about it is the fact that the changes are long lasting as compared to medications which only provide us with temporary relief.
