Her adoptive parents were not seeing progress in the placement she was in, and some problematic behaviors appeared to be escalating. They believed the setting was not a good fit for Louise, and they withdrew her.  Parents were hoping for an alternative to the myriad of medications and behavioral plans that seemingly were not effective in managing Louise’s behaviors. They were advised to consider neurofeedback as an option. 

They came to our office for neurofeedback, a form of brain wave biofeedback. After the initial treatment, parents noticed that she was much less impulsive in stores.  Behavior at restaurants was calmer around food issues. During the sessions she appeared calm and pleasant, reporting that she was feeling calmer.

Louise has completed 12 sessions and her social skills are already improving.  She is re-enrolled in a different less restrictive school and making satisfactory progress. Parents are very pleased with Louise’s progress so far and are looking forward to re-integrating her with the family shortly

It is very encouraging to see Louise make such great progress.  The expectation is that with continued treatment she will be able to live a more normal and happy life with her family and peers.  Her future appears much brighter with better emotional, and behavioral balance.
