: 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
Tyler has had several sessions of biofeedback now.
He is now able to do his written homework with almost no help for the first time in his life. His handwriting is improving. HE is less argumentative and seems to mind better. His tic's have lessened. I a now a firm believer in biofeedback. I wish every ADD/ADHD could have biofeedback. I hope after Tyler finished his 40 or so sessions he will be able to come off his meds. The changes are supposed to be permanent. Post a message on the new board about biofeedback if you try it for your son. I will be looking. Linda
