Overview

Learning disabilities that involve difficulties in mathematical ability or reading can be improved upon with the help of neurofeedback training. It is especially beneficial for children with SLD who do not show significant improvement with extra tutoring along with standard educational practices. Neurofeedback has also been found to be effective in resolving common emotional issues of children with SLD such as irritability, anxiety, anger, frustration, etc.
With neurofeedback, brain activity in areas related to learning are measured and targeted for change. Neurofeedback training reshapes the networks in the brain that are not functioning efficiently, thus enhancing the learning processes of a child with SLD.
During the procedure, electrodes are attached on the scalp of the person that feeds information to a monitor regarding the brain activity. Constant feedback regarding the brain activity is provided which helps move the brain activity in the desired direction of improved functioning. It is a non-invasive, safe, and painless procedure with no adverse side effects reported.
