Abstract

Neurofeedback is a neuroscience based clinical application which involves training and learning self-regulation of brain activity. This presentation is to assist the viewer to understand the process of assessment and how neurofeedback works. The IVA+ is the assessment tool used to help individualize neurofeedback sessions and track progress. This is a multiple case study examining neurofeedback treatments of clients’ diagnoses with ADD/ADHD and Autism. The researchers investigated the effects on behavioral functioning, learning and memory, and social and emotional functioning. Researchers found positive assessment in all areas of investigation; partial success underscores the need for further study of neurofeedback and ADD/ADHD and Autism. Researchers also found a possible need for counseling support for families being affected by a family member with ADD/ADHD.
