American Academy of Pediatrics endorses EEG
biofeedback for treatment of ADHD
In the most recent revision of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) “Evidence-based Child and Adolescent Psycho-social Interventions”, EEG biofeedback (neurofeedback) was raised to “Level 1 — Best Support” as an intervention for Attention and Hyperactivity Behaviors.
The studies that AAP cited as supporting their decision were:
- Beauregard, M., & Levesque, J. (2006). Functional magnetic resonance imaging investigation of the effects of neurofeedback training on neural bases of selective attention and response inhibition in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback, 31, 3–20.
