Neuro/Bio & Educational Feedback
Neuro/Bio/Edu Feedback allows individuals to promote self mastery skills where they can learn how to improve attention, the ability to focus for prolonged periods of time and gain a sense of self control over their body and mind. It has been used to improve health and/or performance, and there are physiological changes that often occur in conjunction with changes to thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Eventually, these changes can be maintained without the use of extra equipment.
Those individuals using the Neuro/Bio/Edu Feedback programs have been able to see marked improvements in four key areas:
- Improved Focus. Individuals have developed core skills like ignoring distractions, increasing memory, increasing organization, finishing tasks, and following instructions
- Improved Behavior. Hyperactivity and impulsivity are often problems at both school and home. Focus more, fidget less. Once these behaviors are controlled, it’s easier for an individual to succeed at school.
- Improved Academics. Individuals can improve skills that are necessary to survive and thrive in the classroom.
- Improved Social Interaction. It can help improve relationships between siblings or with other children at school and also improve interactions between parents and adolescents with ADHD. Your child does not have to be an outcast or feel different. Your child will be able to make friends and learn the skills necessary to keep them.
Attention problems seldom occur in isolation. When attention is weak, individuals are also typically weak in other skills. These include:
- Time on Task: The ability to start and complete an assignment within a given amount of time; i.e. homework, projects at work
- Visual Tracking: The ability to follow a moving object with focused attention; i.e. watching a teacher at the front of the room, speaker at a meeting
- Short Term Memory: Memory helps us perform tasks, take multiple step directions, and remember names for a short period of time.
- Discriminatory Processing: The ability to filter out distractions while paying attention. Increasing this ability reduces the effects of distraction at home, school, and the workplace.
