Neurofeedback training - an effective therapy for treating ADD/ADHD
Historically medical treatments for ADD/ADHD were considered to be the only intervention for reducing the core symptoms of this disorder. However over the last thirty years a growing body of research, including randomised, controlled, and double blind studies, and case studies have shown that neurofeedback training is an effective therapy for treating ADD/ADHD.
Studies that have compared drug treatments with neurofeedback training for treating ADHD have shown that Neurofeedback is just as effective as the drugs in the treatment of the core symptoms of ADHD. However the main differences that were noted in comparing neurofeedback training with drug treatments, was that neurofeedback does not have any side effects and when the treatment was stopped the gains were maintained, whereas when the drug treatment was stopped the symptoms returned.
