My husband's son (who lives with me) is undergoing neurofeedback theraphy. So far so good. He is happy to go, has clear goals and reasons as to why he is there.
He's been receiving it for a couple of months. No major improvements yet. But, he has developed an awareness of his condition and understands that he has to focus, concentrate and put himself into it. I do notice he tries to control his impulsivity in a happier mood and that he responds better to cues.
I believe it to be good alternative, worth trying, over medication. But time will tell.
My son was 16 when he was diagnosis with ADHD (inattentive type). He had been labeled as intelligent but lazy by his schools. He was becoming steadily more moody and withdrawn. In a desperate attempt I had him tested by a neuropsychologist (Dr. Robert Velin in Missoula Montana) who found the ADHD. The ADHD had been undiagnosed for so long that he was developing a mood disorder as a result. He was started on Ritalin, which immediatly improved his school performance. In addition he started Neurofeedback therapy twice a week. The difference was amazing. His dark, angry moods gradually subsided. He started talking about what he wanted to do after graduation. He smiled again. It was like the sun breaking through the clouds. My wonderful, happy child was back!
To anyone considering this treatment, I highly recommend it. My son is now a healthy, happy teenager who doesn't have to rely on medications. He still has bad days (what teenager doesn't?), but now he has a future.
