ADD: The 20-Hour Solution
This new book by Mark Steinberg, Ph.D. and Siegfried Othmer, Ph.D. describes a powerful remedy for Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in straightforward language that every reader will understand. The authors specialize in the use of EEG biofeedback techniques (also called neurofeedback) for the attention, behavior, mood, and learning problems of children and adults. ADD: The 20-Hour Solution explains everything that parents of children or adults with ADD or ADHD need to know about how neurofeedback techniques work. Read how they address the underlying problem and characteristics of ADD/ADHD, which must be corrected in order for symptoms to resolve. (ADHD is the formal designation reflecting that hyperactivity is an additional feature in this variant of the condition.)
Drs. Steinberg and Othmer take readers through this method, which can improve the brainís ability to pay attention and regulate behavior. They outline a step-by-step process of finding and selecting a professional who offers the appropriate EEG neurofeedback services, and describe the process of resolving ADD safely and sensibly in only 20 hours, utilizing this innovative treatment method. They discuss how to monitor progress, and give specific criteria and methods for evaluating treatment success. This book will guide parents in how to talk to doctors, therapists, teachers, and others about ADD. It discusses other treatment interventions, and how they might complement neurofeedback. The book details what parents can do to support treatment, create effective environments, minimize stress and conflict, and get their child on-track to healthy adjustment and development. The authors also give specific procedures and examples of effective behavior modification suitable for children, particularly children with ADD.
ADD: The 20-Hour Solution explains the self-healing capacities of the human brain and how it can learn or re-learn the self-regulatory mechanisms that are basic to its normal design and function. The authors define mental fitness and explain the role of EEG neurofeedback in bringing about tangible improvement for those struggling with ADD.
