ADHD is a term commonly used to describe hyperactive, impulsive and distractible behaviour in a person. It affects at least three boys for every girl who is diagnosed, and 2,5% of adults fit the criteria. Living with ADHD, or with someone who has ADHD, can be very frustrating, but there are very simple, natural and often free, ways of improving concentration.
Recognising ADD & ADHD
Neurofeedback is the primary intervention for ADHD & ADD in America.
Attention deficit hyperactive disorder is a neurochemical imbalance in the brain and diagnosis is based on meeting certain criteria over at least 6 months. These behaviours can include carelessness, poor concentration, difficulty with follow-through and organisation during tasks, fidgeting, can’t sit still, high energy levels and disruptiveness.
Attention Deficit Disorder (or ADHD inattentive type) has the same diagnostic criteria as ADHD, without having to meet the hyperactive and impulsive criteria. People with ADD are often forgetful, easily distracted and lose things easily.
Hope for ADHD/ADD
ADHD can be hugely frustrating both for the sufferer and the people around them. Performance at work and at school is affected, your mood can take a knock, and your relationships often suffer too. But there are solutions!
In 2012, the American Academy of Paediatrics rated neurofeedback at level 1 for treatment of attention problems and described it as the best supporting therapy for ADHD.
We also use the latest technology to help the brain focus better. Through Neurofeedback, your brain can better access its full potential. Neurofeedback uses real-time information from your brain to determine in which areas the brain is not ‘balanced’ and then we can show you how to achieve that balance, and therefore optimise your brain’s performance. This too is a natural and safe treatment for ADHD.
Neurofeedback is a non-medical intervention which makes it much better than treating with medication.
