how do i train my Child's brain to focus?



Feeling scattered? Teachers calling to say there's an issue in the classroom?

Neurofeedback training with the NeurOptimal® system is effective and safe brain training that teaches the brain how to uses the right brain waves, our "focusing" or "concentrating" brain waves when we need them. This learning is part of our unconscious brain activity, which is the target of NeurOptimal®.


Learn how neurofeedback training with the NeurOptimal® system can:

  • Boost your child's confidence
  • Improve focus and attentiveness
  • Enhance executive functioning at school, work and in life!

What is Neurofeedback?

Neurofeedback Training with the NeurOptimal system is a safe and non-invasive tool for enhancing school performance. Families also find it helpful for performance anxiety, a common feeling when taking tests or giving a solo at the school concert.

NeurOptimal® helps us perform at our best-what ever that is for us individually. With great calm, focus, and being able to shift out of go-mode to rest-mode, we are better able to meet life’s challenges. Read our case study here and watch a video testimonial from one of our clients.

Luigi's Story

A mom and son discuss how neurofeedback helped his school performance. Luigi's grades improved significantly the year after neurofeedback training. 


This interview took place a year and a half after he completed 3 months of weekly neurofeedback sessions. Read more on Luigis improvements here.

Is Neurofeedback Safe?

Yes. NeurOptimal® neurofeedback is safe for anyone to use.  Why?  Because nothing is being added to your brain. The training works by alerting your automatic functioning part of the brain to its own actions (this part controls the fear response, flight/flight/freeze, sleep, attentiveness, executive functioning, etc.) so it can ‘see’ its own maladaptive patterns.  Because the brain is designed to be responsive to new information, it can optimize its performance. And that’s when we see the positive shifts.

Do the Effects of NeurOptimal® Training Last?

Training with NeurOptimal® is actually a learning task. You get results because your brain is actively learning, even if you are not doing the learning consciously. So much like reading, once your brain knows how to read, it can’t “not know”. Your brain doesn’t forget. It may get rusty, but the effects of learning remain throughout your lifetime.

However, your brain is living tissue and you can— and will— get "knocked off" by stress, by toxins, by poor nutrition. When we notice we are less resilient or more irritable a few booster sessions will get you back to where you were. A "neurofeedback trained brain" is quickly able to utilize the information NeurOptimal® is offering. It's as if the brain says "I know what to do with this!" So you quickly get back into your good place.

If you are going through a more difficult time, you can quickly do a session or two at one of our neurofeedback clinics to recover your optimal flow and functioning.  Our system is also available for rent per month which is the most convenient and cost-effective option, especially helpful for families who want to train together.
