Paulie (not his real name), a 6th grader, struggled with school work, homework and on-task behaviors. Additionally, he was a challenge for his teachers and parents, with hyperactivity, oppositionality and impulsivity as part of their behavioral concerns.

Andy (not his real name), a 12-year-old, had difficulty at home and school with anger and rage issues, as well as ADHD. Behaviors were often defiant and uncooperative.

He was destructive from a young age. Besides always seeming restless and even anxious, he could not stay on task and was very disorganized. He often reported stomach discomfort. Medication did not seem to be helping all these troubling behaviors, which were negatively affecting him at home and school, both socially and academically.

Charlotte (not her real name) felt limited by her fear of driving. It prevented her from engaging in many activities and going places that were desirable. Visiting family members who lived at a distance was always difficult for her, and she would often forego the drive, causing her to miss out on family events. As a passenger she also struggled with the stress of riding in the car. Other therapies did not adequately remediate her problem.

Collette (not her real name) was a very sad 8 year old child. She struggled in school, had difficulty focusing, completing her class work and considered herself “dumb.” She was easily distracted and often misplaced things. Because of panic attacks she asked to be home schooled. She reported feeling rejected on the playground, complained of stomach aches and cried easily.  Mother was concerned that she was quickly losing confidence. Mother reported a forehead injury, when as a toddler, Collette fell down a few stairs on to a ceramic floor.

Roberta (not her real name) considered neurofeedback because of depression, anxiety and panic attacks that interfered considerably with her life. For many years, despite all the doctors’ attempts to help, medication was not proving to be the answer, and her struggle was getting no better. At her first appointment she appeared sad and with the help of her husband, she communicated how difficult life has been. Because she was unable to stay on task and was easily overwhelmed, she felt she was unable to work. Her depression made driving impossible, and she was very dependent on her husband for most household chores.
