They are also charter fellows of the National Registry of Neurofeedback Providers. We incorporate our Neurofeedback training into clinical practice in psychology. In treating ADHD, for example, we do assessments, neurofeedback training and work with parents and teachers to maximize the child's potential. We also have social skills groups for children who need additional help relating to their peers. Our philosophy is to treat each child as an individual and tailor the program to meet his or her needs. Although our preference is to ultimately have children medication free if possible, we are comfortable coordinating our treatment with pediatricians and psychiatrists. We treat children who are currently taking medication as well as those who have never been medicated and have expereince with working with proscribing professionals to gradually reduce medication as the need decreases during neurofeedback training.
