Neurofeedback-A promising therapy for Developmental Disabilities
Updated: Jul 16, 2019
Neurofeedback, also known as EEG (electroencephalogram) biofeedback, is a therapeutic intervention that provides immediate feedback from a computer-based program that assesses a brain activity.
Neurofeedback, is a therapeutic
technique that pairs operant conditioning with brain scan images. The thought behind it is that children and adults can be taught how to voluntarily control brain waves, electrical impulses transmitted through the neural network that transmit information to and from the autonomic and sympathetic nervous systems.
There is increasing support from doctors and psychiatrists that children and adults with developmental disabilities show unusual brain wave patterns. If a person can be taught how to voluntarily control and relearn brain activity, that many disabling symptoms caused by disorders such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, and bipolar disorder could be alleviated.
A team of Neuro Feedback Trainers from Chennai and Bangalore assed our children to provide with a comprehensive brain function report which will help us plan our therapy intervention with more accuracy.
Dr. Sai Kiran Kumar, Consultant Neurofeedback trainer,BCA,USA along with Neurofeedback practinores Zeba Saher, Cheeksha,Navyshree, Misbah Urooj,Shivanai, Sameera, Charitha, Navmalika, Akhil ,Aura Ann from Presidency college organized this biofeedback sessions.
Parental counsel ling was also provided to parents along with a very motivating talk by Sai Kumar to keep the morals high of everyone and emphasizing the importance’s on therapy.
"We are called to serve not be served" Visiting Aash, we understood the immense need in this region for assessments and training for cognitive behavioral therapy.We were overwhelmed by the response and are driven to conduct more camps to met the needs of the children with our extended support " concluded Dr Sai Kiran.
We are thankful for Dr Laji Vargheses guidance who introduced us to Dr. Sai Kumar and team. We look forward to continues guidance's from the team and to have a fallow up camp next year.
