Abstract

Neurofeedback and the IVA+ in the Treatment of an Individual with ADHD and Autism Neurofeedback is a non-invasive computer based program utilized in the treatment of individuals with ADD, ADHD, Major Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia, mTBI, and Reading/Learning Disabilities. Neurofeedback involves training and learning self-regulation of brain activity to better control one’s mental state. The IVA+ is the assessment tool used to help identify auditory and/or visual processing challenges that are then treated with Neurofeedback sessions. This presentation will introduce the assessment process and how Neurofeedback works. A case study of an 8 year old boy diagnosed with ADHD and Autism will be presented including a discussion of the positive effect Neurofeedback has had on diminishing his ADHD behaviors and initiating emotional regulation and empathy- related to his Autism. Further research will need to focus on behavioral interventions along with Neurofeedback treatment.
