Attention Deficit Disorder
ADD / ADHD

Are you struggling with focusing, forgetfulness, distractibility?

At Montreal Neurotherapy Center, we have helped hundreds of children and adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), also called (ADD).

Our Approach

We work with the concept of Neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity refers to the potential that the brain can adapt, as it needs to reorganize by creating new neural pathways.

For us, every individual is unique. The one-size-fits-all solution is not a valid option. Our innovative assessment and treatment programs are based on the latest neuroscience discoveries. We are committed to non-pharmaceutical interventions that offer a high degree of safety and efficacy.

Testing for ADHD

A brain-based assessment for a more complete diagnostic!

  • qEEG technology that precisely measures your unique brainwave activity
  • Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG)
  • Interview and history taking
  • Questionnaires and Behavior Check-lists
  • Continuous Performance Test (CPT)
  • Conners Scale for Assessing ADHD
  • Tests of Attention: Visual & Auditory, Selective attention, Vigilance, Memory, Verbal working memory
  • Tests for executive functions: Figural fluency, Interference, Cognitive flexibility, Response inhibition, Task switching
  • Tests for processing speed
  • Medical questionnaires
  • Lab tests if needed

Treatment for ADHD

We offer NEUROFEEDBACK TREATMENT for children and adults:

  • Increases Attention Span – Decrease Impulsivity – Improve Learning Difficulties
  • Level 1 “Best Support” Intervention for ADHD — The American Academy of Pediatrics’ has elevated Biofeedback to a Level 1 “Best Support” Intervention for ADHD for child and adolescent
  • Neurofeedback has been used in the clinical treatment of ADHD for over 30 years
  • The efficacy of neurofeedback has been documented in over fifty peer-reviewed, published journal articles

Our Brain-Based Assessment

Quantitative Electroencephalography (qEEG)
(45 minutes)

We starts by using advanced qEEG technology that precisely measures your unique brainwave activity. It is performed to investigate brain wave patterns associated with concentration and attention.

Baseline Assessment
( +/-  3.5 hours )

  • Interview and history taking. Review of previous assessments, if any.
  • Questionnaires and behavior Check-lists
  • Continuous Performance Test (CPT):
  • Conners Scale for Assessing ADHD
  • Tests of of Attention: Visual & Auditory, Selective attention, vigilance, memory, verbal working memory.
  • Tests for executive functions: Figural fluency, interference, cognitive flexibility, response inhibition, task switching,
  • Tests for mental processing speed
  • Medical questionnaires
  • Lab tests, if needed

Full Neuropsychological Assessment (if needed):
( +/- 3.5 hours )

Neuro psychological assessment involves the investigation of various aspects of function including intellectual, emotional, perceptual, sensory, strength, and coordination with consideration towards integrity of brain function. Detailed interview, review of medical and educational records, and the use of published standardized psychological tests are the most commonly used methods used in this type of assessment.

Neuro psychological assessment is used for diagnostic purposes (learning disabilities, concussions and more severe brain injury, developmental disabilities, loss of mental efficiency with aging, dementia, post traumatic stress disorder, and emotional problems), to characterize change following compromise of brain function and to determine return to play in sports as well as mental efficiency in relation to careers.

Treatment for ADD

Our program for children and adults will increase attention span, decrease impulsivity, and improve learning difficulties.

PROVEN & APPROVED

“ Level 1 “Best Support” Intervention for ADHD —The American Academy of Pediatrics’ has elevated Biofeedback to a Level 1 “Best Support” Intervention for ADHD for child and adolescent.

Treatment for ADHD

Training: 40 minutes.
Forty to sixty sessions usually achieve lasting results in most cases.

Biofeedback to Decrease anxiety: (5 to 10 minutes at the beginning of a session)
Self Regulation of EDR (Alertness Level) and skin temperature using Biofeedback with respiration, pulse, muscle tension, Heart Rate Variability (HRV).

Neurofeedback To Improve Focused Concentration
The Goal is to gain a more flexible brain and learn self regulation and remain relaxed, alert and focused without fidgeting.

  • Reduction in Theta Amplitude
  • Increase SMR & Beta activity in order to be calm and focused.

Cognitive Training
In addition, exercises, done at home without Neurofeedback, help with special learning needs. We use several computerized programs that train 21 cognitive skills including auditory and visual attention. We monitor progress at distance.

This program lasts up to 12 months
