Summer Recess: The Perfect Time to Start BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy for Children with ADHD
BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy is an alternative treatment that can help children diagnosed with ADHD to achieve greater focus and concentration without the use of pharmaceuticals.
In my house, I’m the one who helps our nine -year- old with the math homework. While most parents hate common core, I enjoy it. I have always done math in my head pretty much the way the kids have to do common core. While I find it easy to do, my nine- year- old son does not. He is defeated before he even looks at it. He automatically doesn’t understand it. This leads to moments of frustration on my part which I must learn to control. If I get too frustrated, I can hear my wife scream “pineapple”, which is my reminder word that I’m getting loud and need to relax. After explaining it several times, suddenly it becomes easy for him and it gets done. The good thing is that eventually he understood it and could complete his homework, I calm down and we can get on with our life.
When your child has ADHD everyday tasks are even more difficult.
I can only imagine what parents go thru when no matter how many times they explain it, their child just doesn’t get it or can’t pay attention long enough to learn it. The frustration that a parent experiences trying to help their child and getting nowhere. It is very easy to get upset with a child and forget how hard it is for them to focus. Imagine how this makes the child feel. Most parents will seek out medical help which will come in the form of a diagnosis of ADHD and prescription drugs. These drugs help but may have side effects and can cause insomnia in some cases. Now you have a kid who can focus but doesn’t want to wake up in the morning! It’s a vicious cycle.
What is ADHD?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can make it difficult for children to pay attention, concentrate, be still and control their impulses. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), upwards of 9% of children between the ages of 2-17 in the United States have been diagnosed with ADHD. Children with ADHD are commonly treated with medication, supplements, dietary changes, and counseling.
The good news is there is a drug-free solution.
BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy.
BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy is an alternative treatment option that can help a child learn, develop and practice strategies for living a better life with ADHD. BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy is a noninvasive, drug-free therapy without side effects. After finishing the treatment program, children with ADHD are able to focus better without the use of prescription drugs.
How does BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy for ADHD children work?
BrainCore Therapy works by first establishing if there is a dysregulation of brainwave patterns in a patient. After identifying an irregular pattern, a proper protocol is chosen to help build new, healthy brainwaves. I liken it to completely repaving a road that has previously been filled with dozens of potholes of all sizes. This would ensure a much smoother and more pleasant ride.
Treatments are performed by placing sensors on the patient’s scalp and obtaining a continuous reading of their brainwave patterns on a computer screen. BrainCore Therapy software measures the brainwaves and provides onscreen feedback to the patient in the form of a puzzle, game, or even a movie. The more normal the brainwaves are, the quicker a puzzle solves itself, the game advances or the movie becomes brighter. This fun approach is the major difference between BrainCore Therapy and more conventional forms of neurofeedback.
Children will enjoy the BrainCore Neurofeedback Therapy treatment program as they are able to sit down, be comfortable and watch their favorite programs as if they were at home.
If your child has been diagnosed with ADHD, Summer Recess is a great time to start the BrainCore Therapy Treatment program to help your child obtain improved concentration and focus. Your child can complete a full program, usually 20-30 sessions over the summer and be ready for the new school year.
