San Diego Neurofeedback Therapy for Learning Disabilities
Nearly 20% of all children in the U.S. have some form of learning disability or attention disorder. These range from issues such as ADD/ADHD, behavioral problems, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) emotional disturbances, and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Many of these children have normal intelligence. However, they have difficulty meeting their academic potential
Why choose neurofeedback to treat learning disorders?
With brain mapping and qEEG, we know that learning disorders are complex issues. Each disorder has sub-disorders with unique causative factors. This is why each child who comes to Thrive Neurolab receives a personalized treatment plan based on their individual brain activity.
We also know that natural strategies and lifestyle changes can improve symptoms in children who have certain learning disabilities and other issues. Thrive Neurolab takes a comprehensive, compassionate approach to help your child. Call today to discuss how we can help you.
Intervention for learning disorders is crucial
Frequently, parents believe that their child will outgrow their challenges. They see them as “late bloomers.” Thus, a high percentage of these children receive no interventions to help them succeed. This may set a foundation for low self-esteem, frustration, shame, and a life of failing to live up to potential.
Untreated learning disabilities and attention disorders can increase the risk of:
- School failure
- Substance abuse
- Problems with the law
- Suicidal ideation
Types of learning disorders that qEEG neurofeedback can improve
ADD/ADHD is a disorder that results in a variety of behavioral issues, like distractibility, short attention span, procrastination, disorganization, and poor impulse control. It is the most commonly diagnosed learning disorder in children. It tends to be more common in boys. Unfortunately, approximately 25% of these children receive no interventions or treatments.
Autism spectrum disorder
ASD involves developmental delays, problems with social skills, communication difficulties, behavioral problems, and learning disabilities. These can range from mild to severe. The rates of diagnosed ASD have increased considerably over the last several decades. In America today, approximately 1 in every 59 children has been diagnosed with ASD.
Children may have emotional problems that interfere with learning. These can be depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues. The Center for Disease Control estimates that 4.4 million children between the ages of 3 and 17 have anxiety and around 1.9 million have depression. This can result in learning difficulties as well as low motivation, high irritability, and test anxiety.
Nearly every child has a moment of defiance against authority. They may act aggressively or throw a temper tantrum. However, a few children develop a pattern of these types of conduct that leads to negative consequences. Then, it has become a behavior problem that interferes with learning and all areas of life and relationships.
