Dynamic Neurofeedback Training for Children
A focused and clear mind is essential for the development of successful learning, life, and social skills. A strong attention span can help to make school or work tasks much easier and assist with information processing.
NeurOptimal brain training uses dynamic neurofeedback systems to allow a child’s brain to improve its functioning by simply providing real-time feedback about its behavior. Much like a mirror, dynamic neurofeedback does not cause changes to happen; it merely reflects what is happening, allowing the brain and central nervous system to use the information in a way that is best for each individual.
NeurOptimal neurofeedback training can assist a child with attention difficulties by strengthening mental acuity and resilience. Parents may also choose to train alongside their child to enhance their own concentration at work, improve overall wellness, and manage stress.
A child’s capacity to maintain attention in the classroom depends on their response to distractions and interruptive thoughts. When children become anxious or stressed, daydreaming or zoning-out can occur more frequently. This separates their minds from the classroom and impedes their information absorption. NeurOptimal training can help combat this by allowing the child to better cope with stressors and distractions.
ADHD has negative impacts on controlling impulses and the ability to hold attention. Neurofeedback training can help by working with a child’s brain to improve their cognitive abilities, rather than fighting or masking symptoms. It is not a treatment for ADHD or any other learning disability or condition, it is a tool for relaxation, stress management and self-optimization.
Children with any type of learning difference often experience stress and lack of self-confidence at school when they feel like they are different. NeurOptimal training can help kids feel calmer in otherwise stressful and challenging environments, allowing them to perform at their best and to benefit more fully from interventions offered.
Neurofeedback training exercises the brain to maintain concentration, focus better, improve learning capacity, and manage performance anxiety. Consistent training helps the mind dismiss unwanted distractions and focus on the task at hand. This benefit usually results in better overall academic performance, leading to stronger confidence and self-esteem.
Being able to focus more efficiently also helps students manage stress. These two factors mutually complement each other, as a calm child can better focus on the present task. As the child goes into an exam or approaches an assignment with a calmer demeanor, they will be able to concentrate mindfully on the learning material.
Many students struggle with distracting thoughts and overcoming this barrier to learning is important for academic success. NeurOptimal neurofeedback training works as exercise for the brain, building flexibility and resilience. As the brain becomes more resilient and flexible, the child should be able to maintain their attention for longer periods of time. Consistent neurofeedback training promotes stronger academic performance by helping children to dismiss harmful distractions.
Neurofeedback training can be used to promote healthy habits and stress management. As the child becomes more attentive in the classroom, they should begin to feel more comfortable and confident in their abilities. This can come as a major relief to both the child and the parent. NeurOptimal training works to boost a child’s confidence, reducing daily stress stemming from academic anxiety.
Proper quality and quantity of sleep are imperative for children to hold focus and cognitive functioning throughout their learning day. When a person doesn’t get enough rest during the night, the brain tries to compensate by ‘zoning out’ throughout the day. Children are much more likely to have a successful learning day after experiencing the powerful benefits of quality sleep, with the help of consistent neurofeedback training.
