Improving focus and the ability to sustain attention is fundamental to dealing with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Many people who exhibit severe ADHD symptoms may also suffer from a number of comorbidities. Anxiety, especially as adults, is the most common. Neurofeedback is established as efficacious in helping those with ADHD. Biofeedback has established efficacy for decreasing anxiety. The combination of ADHD symptoms plus anxiety is found in those with diverse diagnoses, including Learning Disabilities, Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Post-concussion syndrome, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Affect Disorders, and movement disorders, (Tourette’s syndrome and Parkinson’s Disease). Assessment, which is crucial to getting the intervention right, will vary depending on the presenting symptoms. Neurofeedback treatment is based on QEEG assessment and understanding the neural networks that underlie the symptoms.

Participants will review the basics of thorough assessment including the testing used at the ADD Centres and the key elements of using the assessment to guide effective neurofeedback (NFB) plus biofeedback intervention. The emphasis in this presentation will be on single channel assessment and NFB combined with heart rate variability training. However, the use of LORETA in assessment and intervention will be noted. The literature supporting the effectiveness of these treatments will be given.
