For educators interested in neurofeedback treatment for ADHD

Neurofeedback is an approach to treating ADHD that has been around for many years and that continues to generate significant interest - and questions. Because of the ongoing interest in neurofeedback, this issue of Attention Research Update reprints an article I wrote several years ago that reviews the current state of the research support for neurofeedback as a treatment for ADHD.

While a number of neurofeedback studies have been published since this article was published - see for a review on one interesting example - I believe many of the issues raised below still apply.

If you are interested in neurofeedback, I'd also invite you to view a webinar I presented with a colleague several months ago titled 'What parents should know about neurofeedback treatment for ADHD'. The webinar is free and can be accessed on the ADDitude magazine site at Although the webinar was developed specifically for parents, I think it is a good general introduction to the topic & may be of interest to you.

You can also find a brief video overview of a new approach to neurofeedback training that I helped develop at
