Learning Disabilities and Dyslexia
Do you have difficulty reading and writing?
Does it take you longer to finish tasks compared to others?
Are you struggling in school or work?
If you are living with a learning disability or dyslexia, Neurofeedback can help your brain focus on important tasks and better process information, improving your work, relationships and everyday communication.
LEARNING DISABILITIES PRESENT BARRIERS AT EVERY STAGE OF LIFE
While there are a variety of learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, math disabilities or general learning disabilities, most cases involve too much slow brainwave activity. This increased presence of slow brainwaves causes interruptions in the communication bewteen various brain regions, thus affecting learning networks in the brain.
TREATMENTS CAN INCLUDE A COMBINATION OF THE FOLLOWING:
- Psychotherapy (in person or virtual)
Neurofeedback and Learning Disabilities
Neurofeedback works to reshape and retrain your brain by regulating brain patterns that lead to the symptoms of learning disabilities. Neurofeedback enhances brain activity, such as increasing brainwave activity that is responsible for focused thought, improved reasoning, and feeling alert. This is brain activity that is often dysregulated when you have a learning disability. Neurofeedback also helps smooth your brain’s communication through its neural networks, helping your brain improve its processing of information.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH NEUROFEEDBACK
Neurofeedback is very successful in regulating brainwave patterns. Those who have completed Neurofeedback treatment for a learning disability have seen improvements in attention and working memory, as well as improvements in symptoms related to their learning disability. Neurofeedback has, in one study, shown a 400% improvement in reading memory, a 109% increase in reading ability, and a 250% increase in reading comprehension. Through Neurofeedback treatment, your brain will understand and interpret new information more easily and will lower the barriers raised by a learning disability.
