: : Last week I saw a segment on our local news about
: : ADD and Nuerofeedback. I missed some of the segment,
: : so I didn't get all the info. Has anyone ever heard of this treatment?? My son (10 years old) had mild to moderate ADD ( the inattentive type) and we are reluctant to put him on medication. He is doing OK in school. His grades fluctuate from good to poor.He gets frustrated and cries when he has difficulty to homework. Any info advice would help. Thanks ...Lesa in CT
: NEUROFEEDBACK. MY SON IS ALSO ADHD. WE ARE GOING NEXT WEEK TO START BIOFEEDBACK THERAPY. I WILL POST MESSAGES AS WE PROGRESS. HE WILL HAVE 2-3 SESSIONS A WEEK UP TO 40 TO 50 SESIONS. IT IS VERY EXPENSIVE AND MY INSURANCE MAY NOT PAY FOR IT, BUT MY SON IS WORTH IT. KEEP YA'LL POSTED.LINDA
Hi Linda and Lesa,
I have finaly started my "Bio" or "Nuero" feedback treatments. I had my fifth one yesterday and so far so good. My doctor will look at my progress after the 10th session.
Yes these are expensive and most insurance will not cover I was lucky to find one that will.
They would rather cover the drug treatments which is actually more costly because you are not helped to overcome the problems that ADD brings into your life. The drugs just add more problems than they solve and make big money for the professionals.
Everyone of us that benefits from Nuerofeedback needs to speak out so that others may benefit also, and maybe the insurance industry will wise up and do what is right.
