Neurofeedback is a type of biofeedback method whose goal is to help train you to manage your own brain functions. The goal is to provide you with tools you can use to help your brain stay calm and focused, an especially helpful outcome for children, teens, and adults diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Usually performed in a therapist’s office, the neurofeedback process involves monitoring your brain’s electrical activity (brain waves) in “real-time” through electrodes attached to your scalp.

Although much research remains to be done on the lasting impacts of neurofeedback, it is emerging as an area of strong interest among those suffering from or treating ADD/ADHD symptoms.
