Unlocking Their Potential: Autism Awareness Month & Child Abuse Prevention Month
We all know children who cannot seem to be still, listen or follow instructions, no matter how clearly you present them. These children are too often labeled as troublemakers or criticized for lacking discipline. However, there could be underlying reasons for this behavior, as well as solutions to help these children thrive.
Don’t judge—pinpoint the issue. Some of these children could struggle with ADHD. Others could be silently coping with stress from traumatic events or unstable home lives, perhaps suffering with a form of PTSD. Still others could be overcome by depression and anxiety or meet the criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder.
There are solutions. Neurofeedback is a tool to quantify and train brain activity. How it works is quite simple. Brain cells interact to create thoughts, sensations, actions and emotions which are detectable as brain waves. Neurofeedback specifically monitors these brain waves to look for irregularities, then produce a signal to correct and guide the brain waves back into a healthy pattern. Over time, the brain will learn to operate within healthy ranges on its own. This technique has been researched and closely studied for over 50 years.
The Brain Wave Center’s mission is to help as many children as possible access the benefits of neurofeedback training. Therefore, payment arrangements can be made for families in need, based on what they can afford. We also have relationships with various charitable organizations that can help offset costs. At the Brain Wave Center we provide brain mapping, Neurofeedback, psychotherapy, nutrition counseling, assessments and more.
