Neurofeedback Can Help Improve Brain Development
Improved Autistic Outcomes With Neurofeedback Training
Neurofeedback training is an all-natural technology that can provide long-lasting improvements for autistic children and adults.
Many autistic patients struggle with communication with others. This is frequently due to an excess amount of brain energy in the Delta frequency.
Neurofeedback can improve the balance of brainwave function in the brain, creating the opportunity for significantly improved behavior and communication.
Neurofeedback uses the same safe, natural approach in improving your brain function.
The Training is Fun
For the patient, all that is needed is for them to sit back, relax, and watch a video or movie they find interesting. While they watch the video, our computers will be measuring their brainwave activity. If they lose focus due to too many Delta waves, the movie dims and the sound drops down. This dimming acts as feedback to the brain, letting it know it`s going too slowly.
Over time the continuous feedback helps the brain to develop new, more efficient neural pathways. As a result, they are able to think and communicate more clearly!
Like Learning How To Swim, The Process is Safe, and Creates Long Term Change
Neurofeedback uses a process known as operant conditioning, a technique developed from cognitive behavioral therapy. It is a natural learning process. Remember when you first got in a pool, and were learning to swim? At first, it was difficult. Then, with practice, and some coaching from your parents or teacher, you learned how to stay afloat, and then how to swim.
Now, even if you haven`t been in the pool in a long time, you know the skill is still there if you need it. That`s exactly how the training in our office works. A normal training session is 30 minutes long, during which your brain gets frequent coaching in the form of changed audio and visual signals. These signals help the brain create new, more efficient neural pathways that allow for better thought processes, and improved behaviors.
As a result of this, the patient is more able to communicate with the outside world. This decreases their frustration, and also improves their ability to learn new things.
