The neuroAgility Program

December 6th, 2010 - By admin in neuroAgility News

We will also be sched­uling your Family Support Sessions with you.  We want family members, signif­i­cant others, and those living with and affected by the person doing the neuro­feed­back training to attend 2 sessions for every 10 neuro­feed­back sessions.  Struc­ture, bound­aries, goals, ideas and emotions all come into play when family is working and living together.  Our ther­a­pists and our CBT struc­ture will lend a hand in home­work battles, family time, down time, better commu­ni­ca­tion and many other areas where we know fami­lies struggle.

Neuro­feed­back training is most effec­tive two times per week.  Our sched­uling manager sched­ules your full eval­u­a­tion (above), and will then work with your daily routine to see when the best training times are.  You will train two times per week, every other day to have maximum benefit. We will be offering Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday training time slots. Our offices are open M-TH 9am-7:30pm and F 10:30am-5pm.

What is qEEG?

qEEG is a recording of the elec­trical activity that comes off of the scalp.  This takes about an hour in the office.  We will place a cap on your head, and measure 19 lead sites across your scalp.  This infor­ma­tion will let us know what brain waves are firing where.  When we do a map (qEEG) in the office, we are recording 10 minutes eyes open relaxed, and we are recording 10 minutes eyes closed relaxed.  The session takes nearly an hour as we are getting all clear and clean signals ready to record, the prep time is impor­tant.  When you are done with your map your hair will have elec­trode gel in it.  It is good to bring a cap, or prepare your day knowing you will have a bit of gel in your hair upon leaving.   When coming in for your qEEG: no caffeine or sugar, and glasses are preferred to contacts.  We should have a conver­sa­tion about medica­tions you may be taking to see if they are work­able with our recording.
