Neurotherapy and neurofeedback are well suited for children. Not only are the computer games appealing to children, they also have an extra dimension of neural plasticity that many adults do not have. Kids’ great capacity to absorb information and language makes them quick to train. Believe it: you can train a child who can’t listen. You can train children who cannot sit still. The combination of sophisticated brain technology and well-proven learning techniques can lead to dramatic results. With a background in teaching social-emotional learning skills to first graders and kindergarteners in Santa Barbara County Schools, Tiff’s therapeutic regimen, combined with neurotherapy and puppetry is effective, as well as entertaining.
Her work with young children emphasizes social and emotional skills, such as listening, paying attention, remembering directions, and controlling behavior. Her methods enforce self-regulation, as well as executive-functioning skills that help children manage their feelings, make friends, and solve problems.
For most kids, some of the initial changes reported are: 1) improved sleep 2) the ability to self-calm, and 3) better attention.
Often, it’s the most difficult brains that show the most improvement because they have the furthest to improve. Sometimes the changes are quite surprising, and aspects of your child emerge that have always remained unexpressed. Often parents and relatives will notice changes within the first five sessions.
When self-regulation improves, and the brain becomes better regulated, many other symptoms start to improve. This includes improved listening, eye contact, attention, becoming more interactive and engaging properly with other children and adults.
