Here are some home neurofeedback for ADHD reviews as testimonials from parents that demonstrate not only is neurofeedback a powerful and precise way to eliminate ADHD and ADD at its source…the brain. It also demonstrates that properly supervised home neurofeedback with a professional is as affective as clinic based training except more convenient and cost effective in the long run.
Does Neurofeedback Work for ADHD?
Read some parents testimonials
“My now 7-year-old son has been doing Neurofeedback with Jonathan Banks for several months now. As we live in a very remote location, it’s not possible for us to access this treatment locally, so Neurofeedback from home made so much sense, and I’m so grateful I found Jonathan and his service. The software is easy to use, and the support from Jonathan is amazing. Weekly Skype calls, coupled with graphed training sessions and allow Jonathan to monitor my son as though we were in front of him. When it was suggested to use Neurofeedback as one of the treatments for his ADHD, I blindly followed the doctors and psychologists recommendations, not knowing much about the process or its effects.
Over the past months I have learnt so much in relation to ADHD, ADD, The brain, nutrition, medication, strategies for teaching and so on. Due to our location I home school, like many with ADHD he has visual processing and working memory issues he also has dyslexia and dysgraphia which makes school work very challenging. Because I teach, I guess I’m very in tune with his learning and abilities, more so than I was and would be if he were at a school.
The Neurofeedback has been remarkable, some days depending on the area that we are training, it’s like a switch has been flicked, I never would have believed it had I not seen it with my own eyes. He had gone from struggling with writing and being so anxious every time he picked up a pencil, to one day not even noticing he had a pencil in his hand. Another example being he would require prompting all the time for answers to his school work being a 1:1 student, then overnight I asked the questions and he came right out with the answers. His focus has increased, his temperament evened out, he was often tired all the time, slept badly due to restlessness, had constant undiagnosed leg pain/cramps for years, causing sleep issues and became mentally fatigued after minutes of work, and now over time, he has the resilience to get through a good chunk of school work before he tires (he can do in a day what took him a week before!), has not had leg cramps in months, sleeps soundly, and the list goes on. Needless to say this has made my life as a mum and teacher so much easier and enjoyable so I’m happier and much less stressed.
The training has been amazing, though it’s not over and everyone responds differently, if you’re looking for a treatment option, please, please, please, at least try Neurofeedback with Jonathan and see the results. I can’t recommend both the treatment and Jonathan Banks Highly enough, its been life changing for all of us, and I am so fortunate I found Jonathan, and happy that I gave it a go. I read many blogs with parents struggling with their children’s, their symptoms, so much like my sons, and I want to scream from the rooftops…Neurofeedback, Neurofeedback, Neurofeedback! Please at least try it.”
“My 9 year old was ‘diagnosed’ as being on the ‘spectrum of ADHD’ at the age of six years old. We had suspected that he had learning difficulties for a little while as his symptoms included limited concentration, lack of confidence, inability to complete tasks that had more than one step as well as being able to have quality sleep during the night. The only option we were given was to give him Ritalin, something I was not keen to do until we had tried all other avenues first.
During my research about this condition I came across Jonathans website about ADD Neurofeedback and although we weren’t located in his area, I rang him to discuss my sons situation and if he would be a good candidate for this type of ‘treatment’ and learnt that it was definitely an option we should try. Although admittedly I was unsure of the success it could have, the fact that that it was non invasive and we could do it from the convenience of our own home was exactly what we were looking for.
Almost immediately we sore a difference in our son. He was no longer feeling as tired during the day, able to sit still for longer and have the confidence to try and tackle new work. His teachers were amazed at his level of concentration and his ability to start and complete set tasks. His meltdowns from frustration almost became non-existent and gave our son the tools required to express how he was feeling. In his words, ‘his brain was not as foggy and he felt calm after doing the Neurofeedback’.
I would recommend Jonathan as well as Home Neurofeedback to everyone. We look forward to continue progress with our son and are excited about what the future holds for him. Thanks”

“Amos is 8. He will turn 9 in the middle of 2015. His sister is 16, his father works a 28/7 FIFO roster and I am a part-time teacher at a juvenille detention centre. Amos is a sweet, outgoing, loud – extremely loud kid who loves being the class clown, cracking jokes, riding motorbikes, playing with the dogs and having any kind of motorsport adventure. Now to his list he can add playing the playstation and the wii. He is a real boy’s boy. Anything that involves working bees, tools, outdoors and high speeds has him hooked. He doesn’t like homework, reading, maths, sitting still, playing with toys inside, building blocks, drawing or anything that involves being still or quiet or being on his own. Not that he is very good at relating to other people, in fact, his social skills are pretty bad. Not that it is his fault. He has a gut-brain connection that is out of whack. His diagnosis is extensive: primary language disorder, adhd, odd, tourettes and sensory integration dysfunction. It has been a long road in getting the doctors to single out the separate parts of the diagnosis and his case is so complex and in some cases, subtle, that specialists and teachers are always perplexed when he makes gains that he “shouldn’t be able to.”
Now that I have listed the good things about my son, I will share with you the other, very overwhelming issues that are a part of his diagnosis. This is the picture of Amos before starting neurofeedback 5 months ago. Amos had terrible rages and violent mood swings, his answer to everything was to punch – as a result my 16yr old daughter and I would be continually bruised. My daughter couldn’t invite friends over and neither could I so we became quite socially isolated. I couldn’t take him to parks, because he would inevitably punch or bite another child. His behaviour started to become quite sexualised (which was terrifying at 7yrs old) and no matter what behavioural intervention I tried or what medication he was on, the behaviour didn’t dissipate. Amos couldn’t sit still. Not ever. He couldn’t play the ipad or watch tv. He couldn’t sleep through the night.
He was paranoid about water, so shower time was a nightmare or rages, punching, screaming and biting. He began to develop multiple phobias of grass, sand, rain, storms, teeth brushing, swimming etc. It was like I was watching my son be enveloped in a terrible sea of paranoia, fear and turmoil. He couldn’t concentrate. He couldn’t even look at a page in a book or sit still for me to read to him. It would take over 2hours for him to fall asleep (with me beside him) only to then wake 2 hourly for the rest of the night.
I knew if I could get him sleeping and being able to calm down, then maybe we had a shot at getting him interested in learning how to speak and read. Education is the only way out for my son. I truly believe that. I want to teach him how to express himself. I want to help this child find his voice and develop those wonderful aspects of his personality. He faces so much adversity each day for every little thing – like buttoning his shirt, toileting, eating, concentrating etc. That to unlock the potential that lies inside of him would be phenomenal.
Amos has had a range of health issues starting when he was just 10 days old. Believe me when I say I have done almost every single mainstream and alternative therapy that there is to do. Naturopathy, hypnotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, kinesiology, acupuncture, skin brushing, scenar therapy, chiropractic, physiotherapy, sleep training, learning and behaviour intervention, a range of drug therapies (which became a longer and longer list each time I went back to the specialist). All of these therapies were in conjunction with seeing mainstream doctors, pediatricians and specialists. All of these therapies had varying levels of success. Eventually, my journey with Amos led me to neurofeedback therapy.
I am not a believer in one therapy only, I generally take a multidisciplinary approach. So currently, Amos attends The Glenleighden School – which is a school for students with Primary Language Disorders – and there he gets very high levels of support, learns the Paget Gorman speech signing system and has regular contact with a speech therapist and occupational therapist. He also regularly sees his naturopath who works on his gut and his eczema.
Since beginning neurofeedback therapy our life has revolutionized. It was NOT easy at first. I would have to hold his hands for the 3min sessions of neurofeedback and have my daughter assist me as I would hold him in an intervention hold while she attached the eeg. I knew it wasn’t going to be a quick fix or something he would respond to in a month.
Amos has always had trouble adjusting to new therapies – so I look at this as a long term, consistent approach. He began with 3, 5 and 8 min sessions that quickly jumped to 15mins – my son had NEVER sat still for so long. Within 2 months he was sitting for 20-30min sessions and that has been maintained for 5 months. I know that eventually I will try to extend the sessions, but for now it seems that shorter 20-30min sessions of 5 times per week are what seem to make the most lasting changes.
Does neurofeedback work for ADHD? Yes it does and the changes are extensive: Amos is going to sleep by himself. He wakes only once per night and generally puts himself back to sleep. He is down to 1 night nappy (instead of 2 and soaking through the sheets) which is dry a few nights per week. His tic has disappeared. He started playing the wii and the playstation. He can do reading exercises on his ipad (only for 5mins but that is a miracle). He lets me read stories to him once or twice a week, his gross motor skills have improved out of sight – he can ride motorbikes and push bikes. He has STOPPED hitting. Completely stopped. No more punches or kicks. None. He will have a shower without screaming. He lets me brush his hair, he lets a barber cut his hair. He walks on the grass, he goes in the pool. Friends visit us. Yes, I still have to help him play with others, but he doesn’t punch or bite them anymore. We had my daughter’s 16th birthday party here in November and 80 kids came and Amos was excellent. No over-stimulation, no crazy antics, no inappropriate behaviour. We went to NZ to stay with relatives and he coped with it. He has gone from a kid that did everything to not do the neurofeedback and sabotage it in progress to now saying when he can do something…”thats neurofeedback helping me Ill do more of it”
I can see my son starting to emerge. It is a wonderful thing. We are not “there” yet, but we are definitely on the road. I am so grateful for this technology and for Jonathan’s insights and support. I am looking forward to seeing what else lays in store for Amos. It is delightful to watch. There is no greater feeling that to go from a place of hopeless disempowerment, to one of excitement for the future. Neurofeedback has, and will continue to play an important part in Amos’ incredible journey. I wish you all the best of luck with your own child and hope that your own story will be just as rewarding as mine is.”

“Our family life was pretty stressful and out of control when I first heard about neurotherapy. Two very busy working parents with high level of professional responsibilities, 9 yo twins with diagnosed disabilities and no family support… all the ingredients for an explosive result, and such was our family life…from the minute Jonathan assessed our son…we knew we were in good hands.I personally feel relieved, and I am extremely impressed and proud of their achievements and my contribution. I can enjoy a ‘normal’ life, without stressing when my mobile phone rings during school hours.The situation is under control, the family is happy to do simple activities together and with others. No more embarrassment, only enjoyment. I think that thanks to Jonathan’s way to manage the neurotherapy sessions, we have become a very strong and mature family.We are a winning team.”

“Just a small token of my (our) appreciation for all you’ve done for Lilly (all of us). I truly don’t feel you have any concept the impact of your care has had for us. It has been a lifeline when we were drowning. To reach that lifeline and be pulled to shore has been so incredible! I will never be able to repay you for your work, understanding and warm dealings and will remain indebted. Thank you so much!”
