“I have had two men with ADHD, one of whom was on meds for 15 years, the other for over four. The one that used meds for 15 years is now off them and experiencing no depression, no anxiety and can sleep through the night. He did 25 sessions. The one on meds for 4 years cut his down and is sleeping through the night, with less depression, better focus and less anxiety.”
“A 6-year-old boy was brought to me by his mom because she received a note from his school saying they wanted him checked out for ADD/ADHD. Not wanting to put him on medication, she decided to bring him for sessions instead of following the teacher’s request. 8 sessions in and she had not told the school about the neurofeedback, but the teacher met with her and said “I don’t know what you’re doing, but whatever it is, it’s working! He is concentrating more, acting up less, even better at French than he was.” The teacher withdrew the request to have him looked at.”
“At the moment we only use NeurOptimal® for our grandson, Dylan (8 years old), who has ADHD/Minimal Brain Dysfunction. He was the main reason we chose to get started with the equipment […] Dylan’s sessions are twice a week and after 20 sessions we do see progress! He now starts to write and read. Furthermore, maybe most important: he learns to control his temper/anger.”
“An adult client with ADD reported, after her third session, a sudden lifting in her depression. She went on to say that everything seemed different without that “cloud around her”. After another 6 sessions, she made a remark that now she knew what organization looked like. She had never been able to perceive how to organize a task or process before. Symptoms related to ADD are continuing to resolve.”

Brain training to help with anxiety and ADHD
Linda Ciampa tells us how some patients with severe anxiety of ADHD are using neurofeedback instead of medications to change their brainwaves and help their conditions.
Although NeurOptimal® does not directly treat ADHD or other learning and attention issues, it is a tool that helps alleviate symptoms associated with these and other conditions by improving the overall functioning of the central nervous system.
