Milestones is pleased to offer Neurofeedback services for our clients. Neurofeedback is a type of brain training therapy that has proven to be a very successful intervention for adults and children with a variety of different symptoms and disorders. Neurofeedback is safe, non-invasive and the client’s comfort and active engagement are closely monitored.

OUR APPROACH

Brain Training
Neurofeedback involves training the brain to function more efficiently. This occurs through the process of “showing” the brain its own activity and then “rewarding” the brain for changing the activity in order to allow it to make adjustments to better regulate that activity. In essence, we are training the brain to establish more appropriate patterns of electrical activity.

How Does it Work?  
The electrical activity of the brain is detected by sensors that are placed on the client’s head. That information is read by computer software and fed back to the client in the form of auditory, visual, and tactile feedback while they interact with a video game or while watching a video. This feedback allows the brain to learn how to drive its own activity to improved regulation and performance. Over time this feedback will help train the brain to better regulate itself.

Training protocols have been developed to specifically address a wide range of concerns. The electrical activity we target and the locations on the scalp that are monitored are specific to the individual and the concern we are working to address. The training takes place over a minimum of 20 sessions in which the brain gradually learns to better regulate its own brainwave activity.
