What Causes ADHD?

Per the Attention Deficit Disorder Association, ADHD is not caused by poor parenting, head injuries, traumatic life events, digital distractions, video games/television, lack of physical activity, or excess sugar. ADHD is actually caused by chemical, structural, and connectivity differences in the brain. For the most part, this all ties back to genetics.    

Diagnosing ADHD

Please be aware that ADHD is a complex diagnosis. That said, it’s imperative to work with a professional who specializes in the condition. Diagnosis consists of extensive interview procedures, behavior and symptom ratings, third party observations, and other factors. When it comes to attaining academic, standardized testing, and workplace accommodations, neuropsychological and psychoeducational testing are crucial. Should you be interested in seeing if you or your child has ADHD, it’s best to seek out a psychiatrist, psychologist, or psychotherapist who fully understands the condition.

How Neurofeedback Can Help Treat ADHD

There’s no question that it can be frustrating trying to come up with a solution for ADHD symptoms. That’s why so many folks are giving neurofeedback a shot. Neurofeedback training is completely safe, non-invasive, and painless. These exercises are designed to target improvement in motor planning, expression, auditory imagery, executive function, spatial orientation, and more. Neurofeedback is so popular with ADHD treatment because it helps manage attention and emotions.

At NeuraPerformance Brain Center in Denver, countless patients have seen significant improvement in symptoms. Says a 30-year-old female who deals with the condition and depression: “It’s given my life back. I was so depressed and lethargic. I had to force myself to get out of bed in the morning. Now, I’m up each day with a smile on my face, raising my daughter like I always wanted to!”
