The ADHD Without Medication Solution
Tues., Aug. 27th at 6pm at the Brain Performance Center
Have your questions answered regarding neurofeedback and how it could help your child. Neurofeedback is a powerful, non-invasive tool, whereby the brain’s electrical patterns are trained using sophisticated audio/visual feedback technology that appears like a video game. It is used to help child focus, concentrate, and succeed in school. Neurofeedback is supported by substantial peer-reviewed research and is considered a safe, evidence-based intervention. The AAP has given it the highest level of efficacy, equal to stimulant medication for addressing attention disorders. There are no known side effects and can provide permanent improvements to the brain. More info at
