One of the many uses for Neurotherapy is in the treatment of ADHD/ADD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) or, as I like to call it, Attention Different Disorder, because ADD is really not a deficit of attention, it’s more like attention TO EVERYTHING! Please check out the four videos below. The first is a TEDX talk about ADD … by a successful playwright who has ADD; the second and third is a testimonial about Neurofeedback and its effects on ADD; and the fourth (at the bottom of this page) is a testimonial about the Interactive Metronome® and how it helps students with ADD.
Neurotherapy helps to train the brain to attend and focus on one thing, and block out other stimuli (Do you think this could help athletes? You bet!). Some interesting observations about AD/HD:
Many famous people had/have ADD including:
Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright Artists: Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh Athletes: Terry Bradshaw, Michael Phelps, Pete Rose, Nolan Ryan, Michael Jordan, Jason Kidd Authors: Charlotte and Emily Bronte, Samuel Clemens, Emily Dickenson, Edgar Allan Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Robert Frost, George Bernard Shaw, Henry David Thoreau, Leo Tolstoy, Tennessee Williams, Virginia Woolf, William Butler Yeats Composer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders:Andrew Carnegie, Malcolm Forbes, Henry Ford, Bill Gates, David Neeleman, Paul Orfalea, Ted Turner Explorers: Christopher Columbus, Lewis and Clark Entertainers: Ann Bancroft, Jim Carrey, Steve McQueen, Jack Nicholson, Ty Pennington, Elvis Presley, Evil and Robbie Knievel, Sylvester Stallone, Robin Williams, Wright Brothers Inventors: Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin Photographer: Ansel Adams Physicist: Albert Einstein Political Figures: James Carville, John F. Kennedy
- Girls with AD/HD exhibit different behaviors than boys with AD/HD and therefore are often misdiagnosed or not diagnosed at all. … that ‘spacey blond’ in the back row is not ‘dumb’, she may have AD/HD.
The Interactive Metronome® is also usefull for treating ADHD. Click on the video below! 4.
