Neurofeedback for Autism
How Can Neurofeedback Therapy Be Used to Treat Autism?
Research on the effectiveness of neurofeedback for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is in its early stages. Studies have reported that neurotherapy may improve cognitive flexibility (ability to shift from one kind of task to another) and reduce ASD-related behaviors.
At Cognitive Solutions Learning Center, Inc., we have worked with hundreds of children, adolescents, and adult clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We have consistently found it to be helpful, and often recommend neurofeedback when standard educational and behavioral practices do not seem to be producing positive benefit.
Neurofeedback for Autism is often especially helpful with the difficulties with frustration, irritability, anger, anxiety, and mood that very often accompany Autism.
What is the Length of Neurofeedback Treatment?
Neurofeedback training at Cognitive Solutions Learning Center in Chicago consists of a series of thirty-minute sessions. A typical treatment program requires 20 to 40 training sessions. Because Neurofeedback is a learned skill, improvement is gradual and occurs over time. Some individuals may need more training to achieve the full benefits of the therapy. Improvements in attention, organization, and behavior are typically well retained on a long- term basis.
