Feb. 1 , 2017- BIOFEEDBACK
Description: ADHD is a brain disorder. But did anyone analyze brain activity for your diagnosis? The FDA has approved use of quantitative analysis of the EEG (qEEG) as a biological marker for diagnosis. Many studies have also shown that it is possible to re-shape the EEG through biofeedback to sharpen attention and reduce impulsivity in ADHD.
This talk will describe use of EEG for diagnosis and treatment of ADHD and as an indicator and treatment for executive dysfunction and sleep disorders.
All Chapter Programs are open to the public. Free for CHADD members A suggested donation of $5 is appreciated from non-members .
