Call us to schedule your initial assessment

What is the Process like?

You will meet with a Licensed Therapist who will complete an initial assessment to identify whether this technology can meet your needs.

Afterward, you will be assigned a coach who will guide you through 2 weekly 30-minute brain training sessions for 10 months.  During that time you will also check in monthly with a licensed therapist.

Does It Hurt?
No.  Actually, it is fun! You wear a simple armband that connects to a computer and you use your brain to control the computer games. Look, Mom! No Hands!

How long does it take? 
The treatment takes only 30 minutes twice a week.  Spend an hour with us every week and we will literally change your brain in less than a year.

What is Neurofeedback?
Neurofeedback is a word that means using your own brainwaves to teach you how to do things better. Using technology designed by NASA, your brain controls what happens on the screen, teaching you immediately what you need to know in order achieve results. 

It is a pretty amazing way of exercising your brain to focus better, improve concentration, and decrease stress. 

How Much Does it Cost?

 Although times are changing, many insurance companies do not cover neurofeedback treatment for attention-related issues. Although insurance may cover the initial assessment and appointments with the licensed therapist, coaching sessions are typically not covered by insurance.  

 Our goal is to make this technology affordably available to individuals and families.  Pricing options can be discussed more fully during your initial appointment.
The Research
The system we use is the only neurocognitive system to have randomized, controlled studies funded by the US Department of Education and Tufts School of Medicine.

Here are some of their findings:

Those who participated in this technology showed greater improvements in a reduction of ADHD symptoms 6 months after the intervention than those who did not receive the treatment.  The findings suggest that this is a promising treatment for ADHD

 Journal of Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics – January 2014

Children in both the 2nd and 4th grade who had been identified to have ADHD symptoms participated in this study. One third used the neurofeedback technology that Yuma Counseling Services is using. One third participated in cognitive training. One third did not receive treatment. 

Only the third of children using this technology showed significant improvement in the reduction of ADHD systems, while the other children showed almost no improvement at all. Additionally, those children not using the technology also showed an increased use of stimulant medication.

The Journal Clinical Pediatrics (CLIN PEDIATR 2011 50: 615 originally published online 10 May 2011) 

This study showed that the use of Neurofeedback and computer-assisted technology had a significant improvement on the students' behaviors and ability to pay attention.
