Neurofeedback for Children

Although NeurOptimal® is not a treatment for specific conditions, it is a tool that helps alleviate symptoms of many conditions by improving the overall functioning of the central nervous system.

Neurofeedback is deemed a ‘Level 1/best support’ according to the American Academy of Pediatrics analysis of Evidenced-Based Child and Adolescent Interventions (September 2010).

Appropriate for children ages 4 and up, NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback has been used to alleviate the symptoms of a variety of challenges faced by our young clients at NeurAlive, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADHD, OCD, developmental and learning disorders.  One reason why we love offering brain training to children is that they don’t have to ‘do’ anything to feel the effects.  They simply sit or lie back and listen to music for the approximate 30 minute session.  They can also choose to watch a movie or draw, craft, read or play lego.  Learn more about NeurOptimal® and its benefits for children via the videos below:

Mothers’ Stories



Observations of Change in a Family System Using NeurOptimal®
Someone dear to you, someone you deeply care about, has fallen through the cracks in the mental health system.  The medical system has not been able to interrupt a downward spiral in the person’s life. If you are interested in how one person in a family might respond differently in a crisis, you may be interested in this story of how an older sister learns to manage self using family systems theory and NeurOptimal®. It is a story of learning to be more aware and objective about mental illness and how thoughtful relationships changing, throughout the family, can make a tremendous difference in enabling better functioning (for everyone, not just the symptomatic one). Overall it is a story of how one begins to redirect anxiety in a system.
