When it comes to ADHD, we understand how the brain organizes itself and the struggles that come with it. The lack of attention to detail and the inability to follow verbal instructions can be frustrating, but it is not due to a lack of effort from the child. It is simply an unfortunate side effect to the way the brain is processing information. Those with ADHD are not forgetful and absent-minded, but instead consumed by external stimuli. With the right tools and training, the brain can learn new ways to process information and stay engaged in the task at hand. The program we created to treat children with ADHD is a two-pronged approach: cognitive therapy and neurofeedback. Cognitive therapy games are used to teach underdeveloped skills; whereas, neurofeedback is used to help the brain organize how it processes information.

Cognitive Therapy Games

Children, especially those with ADHD, thrive in a game setting. By mixing games and learning together, attention is rewarded while enhancing the skillset needed to thrive in an academic setting. These techniques are proven to help children build specific skills, such as visual memory, phonological and phonemic awareness, auditory processing, non-verbal social language, semantics, and more. These games address symptoms of ADHD, as well as stimulate the brain’s abilities in reading, writing, and and math.


Neurofeedback simply gives the brain a mirror to see what it is doing, allowing it to reorganize itself for optimal functioning. It is completely non-invasive, using sound to communicate with the brain in real-time. You sit and relax listening to calming music, and as the delicate electrical activity shifts, the music pauses briefly. That is the feedback to the brain saying, pay attention to what you are doing. The brain then has the ability to readjust some unpleasant automatic processes into more effective ways of functioning and processing information because the brain always wants to stay in comfort.
