Math Disabilities Treatment Program

A successful and alternative treatment for Math Learning Disabilities

Do you or your child struggle with a math learning disability? If so, our Math Disabilities Treatment Program here at the Scottsdale Neurofeedback Institute may be just for you. We have been offering a successful alternative treatment for Math Disabilities here in Arizona for over 18 years. By using QEEG guided EEG neurofeedback we have been able to make a substantial difference in the lives of individuals who are diagnosed with a math learning disability.

Approximately 10% of the population have math learning disabilities. A “learning disability” is defined as a 20 point gap between (IQ) intelligence and test scores. For instance with an IQ of 100 and math at 80 or below. Another common definition of a math learning disability is that ones math knowledge is two years below grade level.

QEEG Brain Mapping Research for Math Learning Disabilities

Here at the Scottsdale Neurofeedback Institute in Arizona we have researched the QEEG topographic brainmaps of individuals with a math learning disability . We have found that our findings agree with that of others and shows that math learning disability is located in the parietal lobes (the upper back of the head). EEG neurofeedback training can usually remediate the blood flow and metabolism abnormalities, timing, and connectivity dysfunctions in these areas.

Neurofeedback, a primary treatment for Math Learning Disabilities

QEEG topographic brain mapping, with multiple databases, including the New York University Medical School Normative Database, can accurately assess for what types of dysfunction are present and to what degree of severity. EEG neurofeedback training can, in most cases, rather remarkably remediate these abnormalities, with statistically significant improvements.

With math learning difficulties there is still usually a need for remediation such as tutoring, special education, computer and academic training to make up for the many years of underachievement caused by these brain areas performing inefficiently.

Poor handwriting (Dysgraphia), located in the motor strip which runs from above one ear to the other, and facial expression processing deficits (such as Asperger’s) which is located in the fusiform gyrus, below the posterior temporal lobes are also treatable with neurofeedback, as are reading disabilities and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD).

Pre and post mapping and pre and post testing is performed to measure improvement.
