One in five children in the U.S. have learning and attention issues such as dyslexia and ADHD, according to the National Center for Learning Disabilities.
Having such a disability makes academic life more challenging than for the average student. But nearly half (48%) of parents mistakenly believe children will outgrow these brain-based difficulties while 33% of educators say sometimes what people call a learning disability is really just laziness.
Learning disabilities are actually neurologically-based disorders, meaning they are rooted in problems of brain function. Neurofeedback therapy, also called Neuromodulation therapy, targets specifically areas in the brain naturally, essentially retraining the brain to function at an optimal level without the use of medications.
At our practice, we use qEEG technology to map the brain and identify where dysfunction lies. From there, a customized protocol is developed that can retrain the brain to function at its best and overcome learning disabilities.
Neurofeedback is commonly used to treat the following learning disabilities:
- Auditory Processing Disorder
- Executive Function Disorder
- Language Processing Disorder
- Non-Verbal Learning Disabilities
- Visual Perceptual/Visual Motor Deficit
