A short break from The ADHD Four Great Tips
A recent meta-analysis, a study of previous studies, indicates that biofeedback is not an effective treatment for ADHD. That does not mean that it doesn’t help for other conditions, and doesn’t even mean that it doesn’t help some people with ADHD.
One of my concerns about science is that most scientific reports testing anything simply look at the averages. There are few negative studies that look at the few people whom a treatment helped or even the few that it seemed to make worse. Or at the outliers in brain imaging studies or any other type of study. I think some breakthroughs could be made by studying the outliers.
But I do believe that biofeedback is probably not an effective treatment for most people with ADHD. And I believe that science, imperfect though it may be, is the best approach to determining what works and what doesn’t.
