Neurofeedback Intervention

Here at The Kassia Academy, we offer a 'Neurofeedback' Therapy Intervention.

This is delivered by Education Psychologist, Dr Susan Darby

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback acts like a kind of mirror for the brain.  By providing feedback to the brain about what it is doing, Neurofeedback supports the brain to develop its ability to self-regulate.

What is Neurofeedback used for?

Neurofeedback is mainly used in the treatment of ADHD.  When used with CYP who are heightened, it supports focus by helping them to calm.

It is widely available in Germany and in the USA, although there is a growing number of practitioners offering Neurofeedback in the UK.

Neurofeedback is particularly aimed at:

  • Improving concentration.
  • Encouraging relaxed attention.
  • Increasing tolerance of frustration.
  • Improving sleep.
  • Relaxing the environment both at home and in school.
  • Providing an alternative or additional intervention.
What happens with Neurofeedback?

For about 45 minutes:

  • The young person plays special video games or watches a video shown through a special player.
  • Meanwhile sensors on the young person’s head gather information about their brainwaves.  This information affects how the video game or video is displayed.  This is the feedback.

Usually young people have about 20 sessions.  It is important that parents/carers and school staff for the young person report any changes in behaviour, so that the Neurofeedback can be tailored if necessary.
