How can Neurofeedback help with learning difficulties?

Neurofeedback is a tool that help to improve brain regulation, and so the short answer is that if a learning difficulty is associated with brain dis-regulation, then yes it is likely Neurofeedback will help.

Problems of attention and hyperactivity have been linked to brain deregulation since the 1970s. The evidence for Neurofeedback to improve ADHD symptoms is very well established and endorsed by an American Academy of Pediatrics report at the highest level of Evidence-Based Intervention, with up to 80-90% success rates reported, and we do not need a medical diagnosis to help.

Brain dis-regulation is also associated with other learning difficulties, please refer to our specialist pages to learn how neurofeedback may be able to help, as well as the learning disability Down Syndrome.
