How Effective is Neurofeedback for Kids on the Autistic Spectrum?

In a study of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, children who received Neurofeedback training improved in a wide variety of skills, abilities, and behaviors much more than those who did not receive neurofeedback.

26% average reduction in behaviors on the Autistic Treatment Evaluation Checklists (ATEC) was shown by those kids that received Neurofeedback. What is most notable is that this reduction was seen regardless of the child’s severity level of autism. Kids that experienced severe vs. mild autistic spectrum behaviors all showed improvement.

Parents also noted improvement in many different areas such as: socialization, vocalization, sleep, anxiety, schoolwork and reduction of tantrums.
