ADHD Treatment in Dubai: Neurofeedback Therapy and Why It Works

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a behavioral disorder and a neurodevelopmental disability. Persons with ADHD exhibit inattentive and/or hyperactive-impulsive behaviors that are inappropriate for their developmental level.

In other words, while children — especially young children — are often inattentive, hyperactive, and impulsive, a child with ADHD is often noticeably more so. Their inattention and hyperactivity-impulsiveness are beyond the level of their peers. In children with ADHD, moreover, hyperactive-impulsive behaviors are often disruptive; children with ADHD often act in a way that disturbs their classmates, teachers, and other people.

ADHD can impair an individual’s quality of life and functions. It makes focusing on everyday things very challenging. Persons afflicted with ADHD typically have trouble staying organized, making realistic plans, thinking about the consequences of their actions, and/or controlling their fidgety nature. They may also have a hard time adapting to changing situations and sometimes react in extreme ways.

Traditionally, ADHD treatment in Dubai often took the form of medication and some form of parental training or therapy. Understandably, however, parents could be reluctant to give their children ADHD medication. UAE parents are not an exception when it comes to desiring safer methods of ADHD treatment for their children.

This is especially applicable to parents of younger children. Medication for ADHD in toddlers’ treatment is not something any parent would want. It is also not an approach that any ADHD specialist in Dubai or elsewhere, would encourage.

The great news, however, is that you now have the option to choose a non-invasive and safe method for managing hyperactivity-impulsiveness and inattention symptoms: neurofeedback therapy for ADHD.

ADHD Treatment in Dubai: What It Looks Like

ADHD neurofeedback therapy is a simple, non-invasive, and painless procedure. We use electroencephalography or EEG to monitor brainwaves and give you and your brain instantaneous feedback about your brain activity.

During a neurofeedback ADHD treatment session, all you need to do is sit comfortably in a chair to watch your favorite movie. While you are watching the film, we will listen to your brain activity through sensors placed on your head. Every time your brain does something right — i.e., displays a desirable brainwave pattern, say, one that indicates great focus — you will get a better picture and sound from the television.

Over time, through repetition in multiple neurofeedback therapy sessions, your brain learns what it needs to do to focus on the task at hand without being distracted. By the end of the customized brain training program for ADHD treatment, our Dubai clients report that they have found it easier to focus, manage their time, and perform well, whether in school, at home, or at work.

Since neurofeedback involves learning and every person is unique, the type, order and pace of change differs from person to person. You will start experiencing benefits within the first few sessions. But for these effects to last, we recommend a full package of 20 sessions. However, some may require more than 20 sessions.
