Don’t Overlook These 3 Features of ADHD

ADHD Overlooked Features

Great article alert! Dr. William Dobson explains the three defining features of ADHD
1. an interest-based nervous system
2. emotional hyperarousal
3. rejection sensitivity
NeurOptimal® can help to calm emotional hyperarousal and reduce sensitivity. It helps children and adults become more resilient in their response to stress and more flexible in their ability to move from one state to another.

Helping Children with ADHD, Autism and Learning Disabilities To Become the Best They Can Be


As a parent of a son with ADHD and early trauma, I know what it is like to frequently live in crisis. We tried many alternative methods to help our child and, along the way, we learned that there is no magic bullet. What I do know is that our journey with NeurOptimal® has resulted in a family that no longer operates in crisis, and a boy who is no longer on any medication and is much happier, calmer, and more confident. He happily engages in summer camps independently, is a member of sports teams without any difficulties, and is engaged in his life in a way that we marvel at every day.   

With NeurOptimal®, children with ADHD can often focus and concentrate better, have greater self-control, improve upon organizational skills and school grades, and feel more confident at school. Their social skills and enjoyment of relationships tend to improve, and medication is often reduced or no longer required. Children on the autism spectrum often show improvements in reading, writing, listening and speaking, sleeping, adapting to change, recognizing non-verbal cues, and expressing emotions. Children with learning disabilities often experience improvements in auditory processing, memory, focus and alertness, processing speed, overall academic performance, and confidence.

What is NeurOptimal® Neurofeedback? How does it work?

NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is a brain training program that focuses on calming the central nervous system (CNS). As the CNS becomes more resilient and flexible, symptoms and issues related to a wide range of health conditions start to fade away.

NeurOptimal® is 100% non-invasive, safe and drug free. During a 33 minute training session the client listens to music and relaxes! The system monitors the clients brainwaves and, over a series of sessions, the client’s brain learns to “reset” itself and to work more efficiently.

Fight, Flight, or Reset

Many people today have a central nervous system (CNS) that is in the “fight or flight” response setting – even when there is nothing going on to externally cause this. Through NeurOptimal® training, the brain learns each time the CNS is in this state and the CNS then calms or resets. Over time, the overall level of alertness in the CNS decreases and clients find that they can respond to everyday events – from a calmer place.

Who else can benefit from NeurOptimal®?

In addition to increasing the quality of life for children and their families, NeurOptimal® has had positive outcomes for people of all ages coping with a myriad of health conditions including depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, PTSD, concussions, trauma, Alzheimer’s disease, and the “brain fog” associated with chemo-therapy.

Bowen Therapy and Sports-induced Brain Injuries


Bowen Therapy practitioner Craig Mattimoe writes, “The unwanted after-effects of sport-induced head trauma are variously known as post-concussion syndrome (PCS), mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) or traumatic brain injury (TBI).

“Although it appears most PCS cases recover spontaneously, many do not, and there is no medical consensus regarding the required time for a full recovery, or even what constitutes a full recovery.

If an athlete is treated with Bowen while any PCS symptoms are present (most important) a more effective healing option is made available to the body’s innate self-repair and maintenance mechanisms, which option, as documented in repeated, first-hand clinical observations readily initiates a swift recovery (in 93% of cases thus far), the very occurrence of which would clearly seem to override and replace previously sluggish recovery patterns.

This is an especially hopeful prospect for athletes with multiple concussion histories and even more encouraging against the existing backdrop of exceptionally swift clinical recoveries routinely achieved with Bowen, wherein both first time and repeat concussion cases show almost no differential in immediate responses, overall outcomes or recovery times. In other words, from every indication, sport-induced concussed athletes respond and recover favourably and swiftly to Bowen therapy, despite the number or severity of prior concussions.
