Neurofeedback as a Treatment for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A Systematic Review of Evidence for Practice
Willis, W. Grant; Weyandt, Lisa L.; Lubiner, Anna G.; Schubart, Chelsea D.
Journal of Applied School Psychology, v27 n3 p201-227 2011
Neurofeedback training is being offered with increasing frequency as a treatment for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). School psychologists are in a unique position to educate teachers, parents, students, and others about a variety of disorders including ADHD, and it is important for them to be properly informed about the validity of various treatment approaches. The authors provide a description of neurofeedback as a treatment for ADHD and systematically examine evidence for practice concerning this topic. They identify 14 empirical reports, published between 2004 and 2010, that they retrieved and critically reviewed. Commonly used guidelines regarding empirically supported treatment approaches show that, at present, neurofeedback is not well supported as a treatment for ADHD. The authors discuss suggestions for professional practice aligned with current evidence. (Contains 1 table.)
