Learning Disabilities

 

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism and Asperger syndrome are both part of a range of related developmental disorders known as autistic spectrum disorders (ASD). ASD can cause a wide range of symptoms, which are grouped into three categories: problems and difficulties with social interaction, impaired language and communication skills, unusual patterns of thought and physical behavior. People with autism can have different 'degrees' of learning disability, which can affect all aspects of their life. Autism has a common series of signs such as problems with social interactions (i.e. lack of eye contact), impaired verbal and nonverbal communication and patterns of repetitive behavior with narrow, restricted interests. However, autism is a condition unique to every person. With his or her own personality and characteristics, every person with autism manifests the disorder in his or her unique way. 

 

Attention Deficit & Hyperactivity Disorder 

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a biological condition that causes a persistent pattern of difficulties that result in one or more of the following behaviors: lack of attention, hyperactivity and impulsive personality. People with ADD may be easily distracted. The lack of attention or focus may also cause difficulty in organizing, keeping track of time, completing tasks and making mistakes carelessly. People with ADD show excessive nervousness and also balance their legs and wiggle in their seats, they also can be impatient when waiting in line or for their turn to speak. Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can affect a variety of functions. People may be diagnosed with ADD or ADHD depending on whether or not they are hyperactive. It is possible for a person to have ADD without being hyperactive. It's not only about attention. It’s actually about behavior, impulsive or rebellious personalities, defiance, etc. Researchers’ results show that all these are linked to different aspects of the brain’s attention repertoire. Emotional regulation occurs when we pay attention to our connected and intact emotional faculties.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peak Performance

Peak performance is the maximum enhancement of all mental, emotional, physical and situational elements that let us optimize our performance. Performance depends on a healthy brain. So does memory, learning, attention, focus, sleep, the ability to stay calm, mood and migraines. All the ingredients of a peak performance must be recognized, assessed, developed and improved as much as possible.  Anyone who wants to perform at an optimal level, whether in their studies, sports or job can benefit from Neurofeedback. For a sports competitor, as well as for a performance artist good mental function is of the utmost importance, for it will improve athletic training as much as the discipline for rehearsals. Everyone can positively be affected by enhancing the mind’s potential. When conditioning is personalized at this level, one is able to get in touch with the inner resources that will ensure peak performance. Peak Performance is essentially cardio for your neurons or, in other words, an exercise device for your brain to work out, build endurance, and top the performance of your abilities. Many psychological, motivation and learning issues are really brain issues. A well balanced energy, concentration, motivation, meditation all contribute to achieve the best performance in any field.

Benefits of Neurofeedback

Neurofeedback challenges the brain to function better than before, whatever its physical limitations may be. Neurofeedback targets regulation directly. The behavioral methods that are normally used for autism do in time achieve adaptations at the brain level, but they do so indirectly. Neurofeedback is basically a behavioral technique; however, the brain is seen as the behaving entity rather than the child. Anyone of any age can benefit from this training, meaning that if an older individual is autistic, they can also achieve results. Neurofeedback will personalize a method of training so that the individual can self-regulate and find strength and balance within their specific brain functions.

 

 

 

 

Neurofeedback can help the brain to regulate and improve its attention and its behavior. For the vast majority with this diagnosis, complete remission of ADHD symptoms, combined with other methods, could be attained. The goal of Neurofeedback is that the person with ADD or ADHD achieves calmness and mental stability.  The approach is to achieve better overall performance.

Neurofeedback increases the level of performance, allowing your mind and body to let you do your very best.  With Neurofeedback you can get: faster reaction time and speed, greater accuracy stamina, endurance, and muscle strength, better game strategy, decision making and judgment, aggression control - maximize or minimize emotional blocks to performance, better use of imagery and performance boost for important matches. After an initial series of Neurofeedback sessions, people can usually maintain their performance level with only an occasional session, even with a minimum of one per year. A singer can get her act together, prior to performance, with a calming Neurofeedback session. The traveling diplomat can help reset his or her circadian clock with a strategy that includes Neurofeedback. The pilot booked on long-distance flights can ease the strain of time zone shifts with Neurofeedback. The graduate student petrified before his oral exams can prepare with a few sessions of training.
