What is ADHD?
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) has done away with the ADD diagnosis. Now there is one diagnosis — Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) — with three types: Inattentive, Hyperactive-Impulsive, and both.
Regardless of the type, Brain Training can help correct the symptoms (as well as the root cause) of ADHD.
Alarming statistic time: 70% or more of children with ADHD grow up to be adults with ADHD.
Let’s see if we can lower that a bit.
In 2012, The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) upgraded neurofeedback’s effectiveness to Level One — the same rating given to medications for ADHD.
This means that, according to the AAP, neurofeedback is as effective as medication for treating symptoms related to ADHD. (And it’s non-invasive, with zero side effects. Yay!)
For an adult with ADHD, “normal” life is a minefield of challenging situations.
In the workplace, you may be perceived as lazy, unintelligent, inconsiderate, and unreliable. (Being late really ticks people off.)
And when people think you’re an inconsiderate procrastinator? They treat you that way.
Brain Training can correct the root issue of your ADHD. Even if you’ve been struggling with it your whole life.
ADHD and Brain Waves
An ADHD patient usually presents with dysregulation in the beta and theta brain waves.
The theta:beta ratio in a healthy brain is about 2:1. An ADHD patient’s ratio can run as high as 20:1.
In your initial Brain Mapping session, we’ll be able to see all the dysregulation in your brain waves. We use that information to create a treatment plan that focuses your Brain Training in the areas where you need it most.
