ADD, ADHD, focus, concentration, and attention are #1 on the list of issues found to respond very well to brain training according to the 2014 survey of NeurOptimal Trainers world-wide. You can read more about the trainer survey and its results on the benefits of neurofeedback page.
Research on Neurofeedback and ADHD
The NeurOptimal website includes case studies and research on using brain training to improve focus and attention.
“Neurofeedback is training in self-regulation. It is simply biofeedback applied to the brain directly. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function. Self-regulation training allows the system (the central nervous system) to function better.” – Dr. Mark Steinberg, author of ADD The 20-hour Solution
Dr. Mark Steinberg found after 42 years of practice as a clinical psychologist that he saw what worked and what didn’t work. Do you know what he wrote a book on? Neurofeedback WORKS for ADD and ADHD.
Non-medical. Non-invasive. No diagnosis needed. NO NEGATIVE SIDE EFFECTS. There isn’t a drug that is known to work for ADHD with no negative side effects!

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) elevated neurofeedback to a “Level 1- Best Support” intervention for Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorders.
So what does this endorsement by the AAP mean? Previously, neurofeedback was classified as a “Level 2- Good Support” intervention for ADHD. Now, neurofeedback sits among medication and behavioral therapy as an equally viable and successful intervention.
To achieve a Level 1 status, interventions need to have three things:
- At least two randomized trials demonstrating efficacy by being either superior to placebo or equivalent to another Level 1 intervention in a pre- post change paradigm with significant statistical power.
- Experiments conducted with treatment manuals.
- Effects demonstrated by two or more investigator teams.
The studies that helped to promote neurofeedback demonstrated that the treatment condition showed improvements in both impulsivity and attention on a range of measures and tasks. Moreover, neurofeedback has been shown to solve many of the fundamental problems in patients with ADHD like dysregulation of the arousal system, perceptual focus problems and stressed brain syndrome…all without taking medication!
The AAP is a consortium of over 60,000 American pediatricians who work to advise all pediatricians on best practices. They are the foremost trusted entity in pediatrics.
