Neurofeedback for ADHD

Catherine Pascoe

Nearly two thirds of children diagnosed with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), experience profound or severe restrictions characterised by patterns of inappropriate inattentiveness and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity (ABS, 1998; NH&MRC, 2009). Current treatment guidelines developed on behalf of the NH&MRC recommend an holistic approach to the treatment of ADHD that includes pharmacological and/or psychological interventions (NH&MRC, 2012).

Despite a lack of endorsement in the current Australian guidelines as an evidence based treatment for ADHD, many clinical practitioners using neurofeedback training as a treatment for ADHD in children have found significant improvements in their clients (Arns et al, 2009; Bakhshayes et al, 2011; Rossiter, 2004). The aim of this study is to assess the efficacy of neurofeedback training for children with ADHD.
