Meta-Analysis Study of Neurofeedback and ADHD

If you are research oriented and interested in neurofeedback for ADHD, read about a 2009 meta-analysis of related research.

A meta-analysis examines numerous previous studies, looking at differences in and quality of methods used in order to produce a conclusion that integrates the results from all the studies.

The researchers conclude that:
...neurofeedback treatment for ADHD can be considered "Efficacious and Specific" ... with a large ES [effect size] for inattention and impulsivity and a medium ES for hyperactivity.
Personally, what I've seen with clients is improvements in focus and productivity, including being able to organize their tasks and stick with them. It's very rewarding to see the differences these changes make in their lives.
