Case Histories

Student: J.C.
Grade: 10th
Age: 16

J.C. was diagnosed with ADHD a couple of years ago. He was placed on medication, lost a tremendous amount of weight, and was very unhappy with the way the medication altered his feelings and moods. J.C. has had several treatments of neurofeedback and says: “Reading is much easier, and I don’t have to fight with myself to read. Before, I would get sleepy and wander off. Now I don’t get sleepy, and I enjoy reading because I understand it. I can recall information now and retain what I have read and studied. My concentration level is much better, and I feel in control of myself. The medication made me feel weird. If you do the neurofeedback treatment and have a positive attitude, you can see the results. My grades have improved. I now make A’s and B’s in language, and I never did that!” J.C.'s mom says, “J.C. has a greater interest in his own success. He is not as impulsive, and analyzes the situation before acting. He used to get agitated so easily and quickly. Now he doesn’t. Our experience with the medication was very negative, so it was not an option again. We wanted an alternative way to help our son and the neurofeedback training seemed the way to go.” J.C. now shares his success with his peers and encourages others who have ADHD learning differences to give it a try!
