It has been shown in one Canadian study that more than 85% of ADHD children no longer needed stimulant medication after Neurofeedback.
With continued advances in training protocols, this percentage may well approach 95%. On the other hand, the focus is always on obtaining better function, not on getting the children off medications.
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the FDA have given Neurofeedback top level status for efficacy in treating ADHD. Further reading on this study is available here.
Autism & aspergers
Right now autism looks like a very complex disease, but at least it is now clear that it is in fact a medical disease and not just a genetically caused mental disorder. But if autism is looked at as a disease, it must also be acknowledged that diseases in general tend to look complex only when they are not yet understood. If one looked at diabetes, for example, without knowing that insulin was involved as the key player, it would also look exceedingly complex indeed.
Recent advances in Neurofeedback protocols have given considerable impetus to work with Asperger’s Syndrome. The advantage here is that the person at issue may in fact exhibit considerable intellectual gifts, which can be helpful in Neurofeedback. Training for this condition involves a primary focus on emotional regulation, with a secondary focus on anxiety (worry) and obsessional features that may be present. Other non-verbal learning disabilities may also be present, and these may require specific attention.
