Neurofeedback demonstrated significant improvement on reading speed, reading comprehension and reading composite scores as well as improving both Verbal and Full Scale IQ scores for sixth, seventh and eighth graders identified as having learning problems.
Pre-test and post-test reading and cognitive assessments were administered to Control and experimental groups were chosen at random. Neurofeedback training was provided to the participants of the experimental group only, which lasted approximately 30 to 45 minutes within each one-hour time block. The sessions were conducted weekly over a seven month period. The average number of sessions per student was 28.

Ten learning disorder children were selected with higher than normal ratios of theta to alpha brainwave ratios. The Test Of Variables of Attention (TOVA) was applied. Children were divided into two groups in order to maintain similar IQ values, TOVA values, socio-economical status, and gender for each group. The experimental group did neurofeedback and the control group was given sham neurofeedback (it wasn’t real). Twenty half-hour sessions were applied, at a rate of 2 per week. At the end of the 20 sessions, TOVA, WISC and EEG were obtained.
There was significant improvement in WISC performance in the experimental group that was not observed in the control group. EEG (brainwave) activity showed significant improvement in the children who did the neurofeedback but not the other group. All changes observed in the learning disorders in children who did the neurofeedback and not observed in the children who didn’t indicate better cognitive performance and improvement in their brain’s maturity as indicated by EEG analyses.

The results obtained replicate and extend earlier findings that neurofeedback produces positive effects on learning with boys diagnosed with learning disorders ADHD.
