– One study found that 20 sessions of neurofeedback therapy triggered improvements in concentration and attention that were similar to those brought on by Ritalin (Rossiter and LaVaque, 1995).
– One study demonstrated that 30 sessions of neurofeedback therapy were effective in producing cognitive, attentional, behavioral, and IQ improvements (Leins et al., 2007).
Neurofeedback for ADHD is associated with decreased impulsiveness and hyperactivity, improved mood and concentration, increased mood stability, improved sleep patterns, and increased academic performance.
A study found that children undergoing neurofeedback therapy made more prompt and greater improvements in ADHD symptoms, which were sustained at the 6-month follow-up, than did students who received cognitive training and the control group (Steiner et al, 2014).
Neurofeedback training provided significant and sometimes “dramatic” clinical improvements in children with ADD/ADHD (Chartier and Kelly, 1992, referenced by Fox, Tharp, and Fox, 2005).
Neurofeedback can be incredibly valuable in the ADHD healing process. If you or someone you know is struggling with ADHD, we’d love to connect and be a support.
