Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorders
Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders
The diagnose of ADHD describes a list of symptoms related to inattention, difficulty organizing tasks, easily distracted, difficulty focusing. ADHD impacts the frontal lobe, which is the executive functioning of the brain. In QEEG Brain Mapping, ADHD shows up at excessive slow-wave activity. This activity may impact the individual in ways such as drowsiness, poor motivation, and disorganization.

Impact of Neurofeedback and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders
Elite Brain Performance has developed a program that combines both for the most effective alternative drug-free treatment. If you have trouble paying attention, staying on task, poor short-term memory, or act impulsively, then you may be experiencing the basic symptoms of ADD/ADHD. The frontal lobes of the brain are responsible for performing these tasks. It is the last part of the brain to develop, typically in a person’s late twenties. This part of the brain is involved in self-regulation, where we concentrate, finish what we start, and make good decisions. This is also the part of the brain linked to ADD/ADHD. When there is an imbalance in the frontal lobes it is hard for the brain to perform the many tasks involved in our overall executive function. There is evidence that supports the use of EEG biofeedback, neurofeedback, to successfully manage the symptoms of ADD/ADHD. Neurofeedback has a high clinical efficacy rating (4 out of 5) as an effective treatment for ADD/ADHD with no known side effects. There are tests used to diagnose ADHD, but none look at the underlying cause of the problem. The only way to determine the root of the problem is to study how the brain functions and performs by doing a QEEG. Each brain is different, and at The Brain Performance Center, we use the QEEG and a variety of testing modules designed to produce an individualized treatment program that will enable each person to reach their full potential. Our treatments have no reported side effects and do not involve medication which can be extremely expensive and produce side effects such as, agitation. flattened mood, loss of appetite, irritability, mood swings, confusion, headaches, and upset stomach. When an experienced clinician does the neurofeedback training there are no reported side effects. We use neurofeedback with both adults and children and see how effective it is on a daily basis. on a daily basis. There are different ways that ADD/ADHD may manifest in your life. The symptoms range from inattentiveness, hyper activity, impulsiveness, and high distract ability. Regardless, they all can impact your performance at school, on the job, and in your relationships with friends and family. When you have to work three or four times harder than others to produce the same results it lowers your self-confidence and self-esteem as well as your motivation and drive to succeed. There is no reason to feel that you can not achieve what you want to. You can change the way your brain works and take your performance to the level you desire. It can occur in a matter of weeks.
