Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder impacts about one out of twenty people in
the United States. About 60% of those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity
Disorder are "Hyperactive." The other 40% are not hyperactive.
They are the "Inattentive" or "space-cadet" ADD students.
EEG Biofeedback training, also called Neurofeedback, is available in most cities in the United States.
It is a good intervention, and can be effective, provided that your clinician knows what he or she is doing. Expertise and experience are very important, just as in counseling or medicine. Choose your providers wisely.
The very best resource on the internet regarding EEG Biofeedback training is the EEG Spectrum web site.
Everything that you want to know about EEG Biofeedback can be found there, from research to providers near you. We cannot possibly build a site as good as theirs, so we will not try. Visit their site.

ATTEND and EXTRESS
EEG Biofeedback works under the assumption that an individual can learn how to regulate his own brainwave activity if he is given immediate feedback in an understandable format. Most providers have systems that use video games to give the feedback to keep the subject interested while learning.
We have, in fact, seen children as young as four years old learn to decrease slow, unregulated brainwave activity, and increase mid-range, regulated brainwave activity on demand through the training.
The training is also outstanding for peak performance training in athletes and business executives. Ask NASA, the US military, and the most of the world's Olympic teams. They know.
