The most frequent use of neurofeedback is for ADD/ADHD. It has been shown to be effective in a number of studies.

ADD and ADHD are diagnosed using a checklist or questionnaire to evaluate how well a child's behavior matches a list of criteria. Other conditions often have some of the same behaviors and can make a clear diagnosis difficult to determine. Dr. Frank Lawlis on the Dr. Phil show discussed how using qEEG or brain mapping can help parents determine if their child actually has ADD. Several brainwave patterns can indicate ADD but the most significant one is too much theta (slow brain waves) in the front and central areas of the brain. In his book, The ADD Answer, Dr. Lawlis discusses how biofeedback can be used to train the brain. Thermal feedback, breath work, heart rate variability, and neurofeedback are all useful in helping to control ADD symptoms. In their book, Delivered from Distraction, Hallowell and Ratey discuss how qEEG can be used to verify an ADD diagnosis. They are currently using qEEG in their own clinic. Since his attendance at one of the Neurofeedback conferences, The Society for the Advancement of Brain Analysis, Dr. Holloween has started using neurofeedback in his private practice.

In Greensboro, qEEG and neurofeedback training are available at Neurofeedback Associates Inc. Call 336-540-1972
