Being in Control. The Role of Biofeedback in Controlling ADD
ADD is an attention deficit disorder not a stress disorder- or is it? A closer look at the histories of my patients began to show that up to 75 percent of the ADD children had other medical problems accompanying the ADD. Could these associative medical problems exacerbate the ADD? If so, then relaxation assisted biofeedback would be a better treatment than medication.

Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD) is really a misnomer and implies a deficit in attention. However, many children with this disorder focus perfectly fine on subjects of their own choosing (such as watching TV and playing Nintendo). The problem resides in an inability to regulate (i.e. initiate, maintain, and shift) attention to cognitively challenging tasks of someone else’s choosing.
