What results do we obtain?

In the case of ADHD, impulsivity, distractibility, and hyperactivity, many individuals respond positively to the training. This may lead to more successful school performance. Cognitive function may improve as well. In several controlled studies, increases of 10 points in IQ score were found for a representative group of ADHD children. And in two clinical studies, an average increase of 19 and 23 points was demonstrated.

Behavior may improve in other ways as well. If a child has a frequent temper tantrums, is belligerent, or violent or cruel, these aspects of behavior may come under the child's control.

In the case of depression, there can be a gradual recovery of "affect", or emotional responsiveness, and a reduction of effort fatigue. In the case of anxiety and panic attacks, there is gradual improvement in "regulation", with a drop-off in frequency and severity of anxiety episodes and panic attacks until the condition normalizes.

In the case of epilepsy, we observe a reduction in severity and incidence (frequency of occurrence) of seizures. In many cases, anticonvulsant medication may ultimately be reduced (if ordered by the referring neurologist), and side effects of such medication may diminish.
