“In my experience with EEG Biofeedback and ADD, many people are able to improve their reading skills and decrease their need for medication. Also, EEG biofeedback has helped to decrease impulsivity and agressiveness. It is a powerful tool, in part because the patient becomes part of the treatment process by taking more control over his own physiological processes.”

Katie Campbell Daley, MD

 “Overall, these findings support the use of multi-modal treatment, including medication, parent/school counseling, and EEG biofeedback, in the long term management of ADHD, with EEG biofeedback in particular providing a sustained effect even without stimulant treatment…parents interested in non-psychopharmacologic treatment can pursue the use of complementary and alternative therapy. The therapy most promising by recent clinical trials appears to be EEG”

 “The literature, which lacks any negative study of substance, suggests that EEG biofeedback therapy should play a major therapeutic role in many difficult areas. In my opinion, if any medication had demonstrated a wide spectrum of efficacy, it would be universally accepted and widely used.”

David F. Velkoff, MD
Medical Director, Drake Institute of Behavioral Medicine, Los Angeles

“In my own practice, I’ve used neurofeedback in a comprehensive medical treatment program to help more than 1,000 patients with ADHD. When combined with supportive therapies such as family counseling and educational therapy, EEG neurofeedback is the most effective treatment available. Critics of EEG neurofeedback hold this treatment to more rigid standards than drug treatments. Yet unlike drugs, neurofeedback is benign.”

William Sears, MD

“Among the newer approaches to managing ADD, the most exciting is a learning process called neurofeedback. It empowers a person to shift the way he or she pays attention. After more than twenty-five years of research in the university labs, neurofeedback has become more widely available. This is a pleasing development, because neurofeedback has no negative side effects.”
