I am a mom of 9 year old ADHD boy. He got diagnosed as ADHD 2 years ago. We tried different medicine on different doses; but the side effects really worry me. So, we are looking for some alternative treatment to help him. I appreciate any comments on the NeuroFeedBack or any other possible treatments. Thanks in advance!
Your instincts are correct. Neurofeedback has been used with consistent success for in excess of 20 years. I would refer you to EEG Spectrum in California or The ADD Centre in Montreal for very good information. I am a neurofeedback practitioner of 13 years. Neurofeedback addresses the cause of ADD, and in a way that becomes lasting. Perhaps as important, the NFB supports sense of well-being, improved sleep and often social relationships. By all means, look into this. And a nine year old can do this VERY well.
