Re: Has anyone tried Neurofeedback to treat AD(H)D?

My therapist used to do neurofeedback, and ironically I came to him for neurofeedback as a treatment for ADHD--only to discover he had stopped that methodology.

But my therapist, who is really sharp, thinks that neurofeedback can definitely help people with focus and self-regulation. He likes it. Ultimately he concluded that even among people with ADHD, no two people's brains were the same, so the neurofeedback was never quite a precise fit.

Now we do a lot of work on meditation, brain breaks, monitoring my thoughts, reacting calmly when I'm emotional ... just without the brain hookups of neurofeedback. Of course people who use neurofeedback say it's great for ADHD. Other providers who don't use it aren't so bullish on the treatment.

Bottom line: if you are really interested in that method and you can find a provider who is confident and that you like, go for it! I think it's worth a shot. My therapist didn't reject it so much as concluding that he could achieve the same ends using other methods.
