IMG-20150615-WA0003Neurofeedback (NFB) is an operant conditioning procedure by which the subject is trained to increase or inhibit the brain’s production of electrical activity in specific frequency ranges. Prior clinical and experimental studies have demonstrated the efficacy of neurofeedback with a variety of disorders, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, epilepsy, anxiety disorders and depression. AT the same time there seems to be a dearth of studies on neurofeedback treatment for learning disability. The main aim of this study is to ascertain the potential benefits of neurofeedback training for students with learning disabilities. Three were referred to author’s clinical practice. A mini-quantative EEG was administered to all the subjects and protocols were developed following analysis. The subjects had an average of 40 to 80 neurofeedback sessions, three times every week. Each session lasted for 30 to 45 minutes. The results support the hypothesis that there will significant improvements in academic functioning following neurofeedback training. It was concluded that neurofeedback may be an efficacious supplement to special education. Limitations of the study and suggestions for further research are presented, and it is recommended that this study be replicated using larger samples.
