We are in the process of setting up Neurofeedback with Neurocore . Their program is unique in that it is a company that will work with the parents in their own home. We pay a deposit, receive a contract, get trained on line, they ship a laptop, EKG equipment, software and then work with us online to do the Neurofeedback. Since we would have to drive an hour each way to do Neuroffeedback in an office it works great for us. I will let you know how it goes.
This site has the best explanation of Neurofeedback I could find.
Never, never quit. Our children have suffered through trauma that changed the way their brains work. They cannot heal themselves. They cannot try harder. They cannot "stop it". They cannot be bribed, rewarded, or begged into behaving better. Their brains are wired differently. Rewiring through trauma or attachment therapy, EMDR therapy, Neurofeedback and or other trauma type therapies can help if the person is trained to work with traumatized children.
While I am thinking of it, perhaps because this is my day off, TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. Care for the caregiver. Take a walk on a warm spring day, plant some flowers, go for a cup of coffee, go shopping, exercise, eat nutritious meals, breath deeply and spend time in prayer. Restore.
