Hemoencephalography: HEG Based Neurofeedback Practically Introduced as a Smart and Easy-to-Use Training Method in ADD/ADHD, Dyslexia and other Learning Disorders
Ralph Warnke, Dr. Christel Kannegießer-Leitner
Neurofeedback is a fast progressing treatment method. The scope of pathologies and non-pathologies being treated with neurofeedback is likewise growing steadily. A key downside of current standard neurofeedback training is the lengthy treatment periods. I.e. in ADD patients, standard number of sessions often exceeds 40 weekly trainings.
This work describes a different approach to neurofeedback treatment. It is based on the concept of nIR-based HEG therapy as proposed by Toomin and others. The key target groups here are ADD/ADHD children, dyslexic children and children with other forms of learning disorders. Providing clients with a rather compact structure of HEG based neurofeedback training with several sessions per day over a duration of one or two weeks each appears to have similar if not better effects on clients than a lengthy form of therapy. The overall aim of this approach is to provide children and youth with limited concentration and endurance with a treatment they can more easily cope with and perceive as successful in a fast and convincing way.
