Attention, Optimal Functioning & Life Success

A critical ability in just about everything we want to learn and do well in throughout our lives, involves the ability to pay attention. At one end of this spectrum are long time meditators  who are able to sustain attention on one object of focus for considerable durations. At the other end of this range are those who show Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/ADHD), who suffer severe difficulty in keeping their attention steady. Most people fall somewhere in between these two extremes. Wherever one falls on this continuum, improvements in one’s ability to pay attentions can be made through Neurofeedback Training. Whether the issue is a child or adolescent experiencing difficulty staying focused in school, or an adult having work or relationship difficulties, improving attention skills is highly significant to remediation.
