Neurofeedback is based on more than three decades of research and is a specific form of biofeedback which involves the measurement and feedback of brainwave activity for the purpose of allowing one to increase their ability to regulate their central nervous system. It utilizes very small EEG (electroencephalogram) signals obtained from sensors on the scalp, to monitor the brainwaves and provide corresponding feedback to the brain. Neurofeedback is essentially brainwave training, a tool for the brain to directly learn flexibility, mental control and ultimately increased stability and resiliency. Improvements in attention, impulse control, mood, sleep and cognitive functioning are often observed with training.
Sophia receives OT 1x/week for Sensory Processing Disorder at C.T.S. with Erin. She has gone from low tone upper body to climbing a rope ladder and rock wall! She is also able to walk in a figure 8 which she could never do because of poor motor planning. The confidence she has gained has also improved her speech and eye contact. Sophia also started EEG Neurofeedback. Her pre-school teachers have commented on her progress in reading and following instructions. I am excited to see the results EEG will have on her in a year.
