One in seven people have some kind of learning difference, according to The National Institute of Health.  That means that one in seven processes information differently.  Walt Disney, Albert Einstein, and George Patton had learning differences and were able to overcome and rise above these differences, with proper treatment most people can.  Research shows that neurofeedback is an effective treatment for improving  the way you cognitively process  information.

Cognitive processing is a function of the parietal lobes.  learning differenceIt the parietal lobes do not have enough beta waves (processing power) then they can not do their job. If you have ever tried to start a car with a dead battery then you understand how a lack of processing power feels.  Very frustrating.

A learning difference does not reflect lack of motivation, but it does interfere and create a gap between your capability and your performance.  Learning differences are also called learning disability.  The brain gets information two ways: you see it or you hear it.  If you have difficulty with visual processing (i.e. reading) or with auditory processing (i.e. following verbal instructions), then you learn differently.

Often times both children and adults will experience lower self esteem because of the difficulties  they experience at school or work; they may have to work two to three times harder than others.  Common learning differences include: Dyslexia, Dyscalcuila and Dysgraphia.

Learning differences can be genetic.  A person who learns differently has a brain that is wired differently.  Auditory processing is a function of the Temporal lobes while visual processing occurs in the Occipital lobes.  If your brain is out of balance in those areas, then the brain can’t do its job properly.

Please call us today to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your needs in further detail. Understanding what is creating the processing problem is the first step in solving the problem and treating the learning differences.  We have found neurofeedback to be successful in treating learning differences.
