We recently started my 10yr old son on neurofeedback (today will be his 6th session and he goes twice per week) and no improvements yet, but I know it can take months to see a difference, so we’re hanging in there. Would love to hear if others have had any experience with it?

Hi Mitzi.  Each couple years, I spend time trying to decide if I want to invest big $ and time in getting certified to offer Neurofeedback treatments at my office. Never thought about receiving until reading your posts. Remarkable! lol.
I’m really curious about your experience. I wondered how many times u had a treatment, and what you noticed.
Thanks for the FB info.

People should also check with their insurance providers. I have Blue Cross/Blue Shield and so we only pay $20 copay per session for my son’s treatments. So far no noticiable difference but we’ve just started. He uses Othmer method. Here’s where we go: http://www.solutionscounselingandneurofeedback.com in Ann Arbor MI.

Also, Neurocore (https://www.theneurocore.com/) accepts insurance. From their website:

PracticeWise, the company that maintains the American Academy of Pediatrics’ ranking of research support for child and adolescent psychosocial treatments, has elevated Biofeedback to a Level 1 “Best Support” Intervention for ADHD. Click here (http://www.aap.org/en-us/advocacy-and-policy/aap-health-initiatives/Mental-Health/Documents/CRPsychosocialInterventions.pdf) to the see the support chart available on the American Academy of Pediatrics website.

So I feel like a lot of the articles out there are outdated. It’ll cost us about $200 per year in copays. I can handle that. Fingers crossed that it helps because we’ve had a real backslide in progress this year and the meds he’s been on for over a year don’t seem to be working at all anymore, so going to revisit those with the pediatrician soon.

Would love to hear more from folks about their experiences.
