I was referred to the neurofeedback program back in May/June 2017. My son & I were both apprehensive but noticed small, yet significant changes about a month or so in. Now, after a year the changes are phenomena!!! I cannot say enough about the changes I’ve seen in my teenage son… so much so that he also notices them and even more….appreciates them! He is much calmer, making friends and above all else (and the part that makes me so happy I tear up) he is finally able to verbalize how he is feeling and recognize his moods so there is a lot less anger and frustration. Most of all, I am grateful that my son, for the first time in his (our) lives, is able to fit in and just feel normal!!
We have a son who has Autism. Since doing neurofeedback sessions we have noticed an amazing change in him. He smiles and laughs; he interacts with his younger siblings and seems to recognize if they are happy or sad. He speaks more often and his sense of humour is becoming very prominent. We would have to say that this is one of the best things that we could have done for not only our son, but our family as well.
I found this treatment to be very effective, yet with very little asked of my son. All he had to do was listen to the music, making it easy to persuade him to go.
I found the neurofeedback sessions to be a very positive experience. What happens during the session and how it works was explained very well and all my questions were answered. Before neurofeedback, my son displayed the following behaviors…lack of motivation, talk of being worthless, thoughts of suicide, frustrated very easily resulting in a complete shut down or extreme anger that took a long time for him to calm down, and limited social skills. Changes came gradually but were noticeable. He never talks about dying anymore and he rarely gets frustrated. When he does, it is not nearly as intense and it doesn’t take a very long for him to calm down. We also stopped getting calls from the school to come pick him up because he had shut down again. Some other changes we noticed were his being in tune with other people’s emotions. He started asking me how my day was, or if I wasn’t feeling well, he would ask if I was okay. He had never done this before. He also has made some new friends at school.
My brother started Neurofeedback in November 2011. He has aspergers syndrome and has had many challenges in his life up to that date. Because of this, he was violent to other children and wasn’t very social, and had frequent meltdowns that made it very difficult to get through to him. He also had problems expressing himself, and was constantly agitated. After the first few weeks of doing Neurofeedback twice a week, I saw some small changes in his level of anxiety. Within a few months he started to make eye contact, his melt downs were starting to get less frequent as well as less intense, and he was also starting to make conversations with people he knew. He started feeling more and more confident and he was starting to be more mindful of his actions towards others. After around one year he was a completely different child. He was polite, he was very rarely aggressive anymore, his “melt downs” stopped completely. He was a much happier child because he was now able to verbalize his feelings. It has now been a year and a half and he had done 56 sessions. He has friends at school for the first time that I can remember and he now uses his words instead of lashing out at people or having meltdowns when something doesn’t go the way he expects or wants. He is dealing with changes in his life with enthusiasm instead of dread and if something doesn’t seem right he goes to someone to find out what is going on and what he can expect. He is a completely different child from a year and a half ago. I don’t know what kind of quality of life he would have without neurofeedback. He has matured and grown into a confident, loving, humorous young man.
Our son has been receiving training for over a year and we are extremely pleased with the changes we have noticed. He has a diagnosis of Aspergers Syndrome and has difficulty in social situations and interacting with people. He did approximately 2-3 times a week of bio feedback training. We have noticed that he does not “fly off the handle” as often and will stop and think before speaking. He is more helpful around the house and seems to have made some friends.
Our son, who has been diagnosed with ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder, has been receiving neurofeedback treatment with Doug since 2014. We have noticed significant improvements in self-regulation, anger management, and social interactions as a result of these treatments. Doug has an amazing way with kids, and has built a very positive relationship with our son. We have always trusted Doug’s professionalism and sincere approach to his work. We definitely recommend neurofeedback treatment
