Neurofeedback Testing and Treatment

Understanding the expected results up-front will help you determine the type of treatment plan you choose for your child. Typically each child is different and will respond differently to various treatments, but you will at least understand the time and money involved in the process.

Dr. Collins says that asking for results is wise when considering neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy for children with learning disabilities. Typically families see the child's "symptoms" subside within 20 to 40 sessions of neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy, with treatments scheduled 1 to 2 times per week. Those "symptoms" could include temper tantrums, problems with homework, the ability to study or work independently, socialization issues, gaining and retaining friendships, integration of sensory information or difficulties responding to an adult's requests in a reasonable manner.

The good news is that neurotherapy or neurofeedback therapy can create long lasting effects and help the family start to rebuild relationships. Most people are surprised with the positive results when the human brain is trained to work more efficiently.
