At Mind Potential Northwest, we understand the demands on young people today. More than half of our clients are school age kids who experience anxiety & nervousness, fear & obsessive worrying, focus & concentration issues, compulsive behaviors, learning challenges, or physical discomfort like stomach pain and headaches. These symptoms have affected their ability to participate in regular childhood activities and their ability to succeed in school. Neurofeedback offers a highly effective solution to addressing these concerns in a short amount of time. These services are often as effective as medications in reducing symptoms, but they go beyond that by addressing the underlying issue in brain function, yielding long lasting, often permanent results, with few side effects.
Personal Development & Neurotherapy services can help improve results in the classroom and beyond. We understand that being a kid is tough enough in today’s demanding and over-stimulating world. Add a sensitive nervous system or learning differences to that, and it can feel almost impossible to muster up the courage to go to school, to attend social functions, to focus on homework, or to simply enjoy time with family. One out of eight children is affected by anxiety to the degree that it contributes to poor performance in school. Additionally, 7% of today’s youth experience Learning Disabilities and ADHD is the most common neurobehavioral disorder of childhood, effecting about 3 – 5% of school aged children. What many people don’t know is that ADHD symptoms can be caused by anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, and even some medical conditions. In fact, Two-thirds of kids diagnosed with ADHD have other difficulties as well: learning disabilities, anxiety, behavior or mood problems.
Many emotional & behavioral issues, ADHD and other learning challenges,
result from problems in brain function.
EEG Biofeedback Brain Training / Neurotherapy
is designed to address these underlying brain disregulations.
In its 2012 review, the American Academy of Pediatrics gave
EEG Biofeedback Level 1 Efficacy — the same level given to medications.
At Mind Potential Northwest, we provide services that address the underlying source of your challenges. We understand that most doctors are going to recommend medications for children to assist in addressing these challenges. We want parents to know that there is another option. We believe that sometimes medication is beneficial and necessary, but it’s also important to realize that medications are designed to just treat the symptoms and do not correct the source of the problem in the brain. If you are a parent and are reluctant to medicate your child, Neurotherapy offers another option.
