Neurofeedback has been found to be effective in helping to remediate a number of conditions including problems in attention (ADHD). Neurofeedback is complementary to existing medical treatments and mental health practices.

Good treatment begins with thorough assessment. Symptoms provide significant guidance in selecting the best training protocol, but other measures are sometimes needed. When the clinical picture is complex, a quantitative EEG (QEEG) is often helpful in assessing underlying processes.

An interview with a trained clinician is required for a proper assessment. Primary Care Physicians can often make an accurate diagnosis of various mental health issues. A professional who specializes in psychological treatment may also be needed to assess the true nature of a disorder or syndrome.
