How does Neurofeedback help Dyslexia?

  • Dyslexia is a specific reading disability due to a defect in the brain’s processing of graphic symbols.
  • It is a learning disability that alters the way the brain processes written material.
  • It is typically characterized by difficulties in word recognition, spelling and decoding.
  • People with dyslexia have problems with reading comprehension.
  • Dyslexia is considered a neurological and often genetic condition.
  • Dyslexia is not linked to intelligence.
  • The effects of dyslexia vary from person to person.
  • The only shared trait among people with dyslexia is that they read at levels significantly lower than typical for people of their age.
  • With Neurofeedback there is a solution to help individuals with brain based disabilities like dyslexia make changes to their brain that have a lasting impact, no matter their age.
  • Neurofeedback helps to re-train the brain and optimize the functioning of the entire brain by removing barriers and improving the connections and brainwave activity in a certain region of the brain or among different regions of the brain.
  • It releases the old stuck or abnormal patterns to create new and more effective, stronger and organized patterns.
  • Training protocols are generated from the initial QEEG brain mapping.
  • Training involves audio and visual feedback that involuntarily teaches the individual to self-regulate the abnormal brain wave patterns that are presented to them on computer screen and through earphones in a number of ways.
  • Neurofeedback training has shown a high level of clinical success around the world, and is supported by a strong base of research in neuroscience.

  • Neurofeedback (Brain Training) uses information about the brain's electrical energy, or brain waves, to literally change the way the brain works.

  • Many children with learning disabilities are simply stuck, so to speak, in the wrong brain wavelength patterns.

  • Through Neurofeedback, their brains can be taught to operate on an entirely new level.

  • In fact, a 1985 study found that children with learning disorders who were treated with neurofeedback therapy showed an average IQ increase of nineteen points.

  • Neurofeedback training or Brain Training targets the symptoms of dyslexia at their foundation – the brain!

  • Often visual, auditory, and/or executive processing deficiencies are present in those with learning disabilities, and neurofeedback directly targets these areas of brain function.

  • Not only can it target the primary symptoms, but also the secondary symptoms of learning disabilities including social emotional and self esteem difficulties.

  • Neurofeedback produces long-term changes in an individual’s functioning and mental health.
