Special Needs, ADD/ADHD
ADD / ADHD
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) cover a wide range of problems involving inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination. Although these disorders are most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorders in children, they also impact many adults, and, if not treated, can have lasting negative effects on everything from interpersonal relationships to career success.
ADD/ADHD can run in families, but the cause is unknown. It seems to be set in motion early in life as the brain is developing. Imaging studies suggest that the brains of children with ADD/ADHD are different from those of other children. A child who has the symptoms of ADD/ADHD should be carefully examined by a doctor in order to rule out other possible conditions or reasons for the behavior. Children with ADD/ADHD can have at least one other developmental or behavioral problem. They may also have other problems, such as depression or chronic anxiety.
Those who suffer from ADHD have difficulty focusing and completing tasks. They also have specific brainwave patterns.
NeuroAdvantage offers brainwave programs designed to help your brain stay focused and sharp, remove that fuzzy mental ‘fog’ feeling and create optimal conditions for performing complex mental tasks, brainstorming, studying, analyzing, or performing any task that requires high level of concentration.
These programs reinforce the 12-18 Hz Beta brainwave patterns that help foster calm and increase focused attention. Our programs will help you greatly improve the efficiency of your brain, as well as its overall capacity. Used on a regular basis, these programs will give you:
- Improved concentration
- Improved memory
- Peak performance
- Enhanced creativity and
- An improved immune system.
Research Supports the Effectiveness of LSN in Treating ADD/ADHD and other Learning Disabilities
Click here to review research findings from ten different studies conducted with children suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and/or learning disabilities. These findings document the effectiveness of brain retraining for many symptoms common in people with ADHD and/or learning disabilities.
Summarizing across studies, researchers found that LSN treatment:
- Increased sustained attention
- Improved impulse control
- Decreased anxiety and depression
- Improved essential learning skills including:
- Auditory memory
- Mental processing speed
- Verbal and non-verbal IQ
- Improved academic performance
- Generated improvements similar to psycho-stimulant medication; and
- Maintained the treatment gains for up to 16-months following treatment termination.
NeuroAdvantage™ Programs for ADD / ADHD
NeuroAdvantage™ offers a number of Light & Sound Neurotherapy (LSN) programs designed to improve mental concentration and focus in children and adults. These programs are especially effective when done in the morning.
Alpha and Theta are the brainwave patterns most commonly associated with meditation, and also with the ADD/ADHD brain. The difference is that the ADD/ADHD brain exhibits a lack of synchrony between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. Using brainwave entrainment technology, the two hemispheres of the brain are stimulated with natural and balanced frequencies aimed at promoting focus and concentration, whilst at the same time bringing about a state of calmness and relaxation. Brain retraining increases the electrical activity in the brain, increases the blood flow to the brain, and promotes new nerve cell growth in the brain. Major shifts in brainwave patterns can be seen after as little as one session of brain retraining.
To change your emotions and behaviors over time, you will want to use a series of sessions on a regular basis over several months.
Eventually, your brain will be trained to produce these same patterns on its own, thus allowing you to have greater control over your ability to concentrate and reduce hyperactivity.
For maximum effect, use the NeuroAdvantage™ Trainer with the programs we have designed to help improve mental concentration, memory and focus. Your NeuroAdvantage™ Coach will work with you to determine the most effective programs and schedules.
We have also developed the audio programs for mental concentration, memory and focus. These programs can be used with the Trainer, or by themselves.
