At Spectrum Learning, we provide a spectrum of interventions for children and adults with ADHD. Usually, we combine a few interventions into a training program to get the best results. Of course, the first things to do are tests and assessments that we provide. The results from the tests and assessments are used to tailor an individualized training program for your child.
The interventions that we provide for ADHD are:
Brain based Intervention: Neurofeedback
Neurofeedback is one of the core therapies at Spectrum Learning. We are the first
in Asia to provide neurofeedback therapy (since 1995). Research has shown that neurofeedback
is an effective non-
With neurofeedback, we can train the brain directly in a safe and non-
There are many ways that we can exercise the brain using neurofeedback. The QEEG or Brain Mapping will provide valuable information on how to train your child’s brain. However, without a QEEG, we can also design the training protocols for your child based on our years of experience.
With neurofeedback therapy, the most common training is to train those regions of the brain that are too active can calm down, or those regions that are too passive can increase in activities so as to reduce the symptoms of ADHD. We can also train in other ways depending on the presenting condition, such as to train different parts of the brain to work together harmoniously for better function.
Research has shown that neurofeedback is as effective as medication for treating ADHD but without the side effects.
A) For this child with ADHD, his QEEG showed that he is the excessive Beta subtype. The QEEG indicated that the excessive Beta is focused at a location on his right frontal (site F8). Children with excessive Beta at this location are hyperactive, very challenging and mischievous.
For this child, neurofeedback is used to focus training at this site, F8, to calm down and reduce his excessive Beta. This will lead to a reduction in ADHD symptoms once his excessive Beta reduces to the norm.
B) For this child with ADHD, his QEEG showed that he is the excessive Theta subtype.
His excessive Theta is at the mid-
For this child, neurofeedback is used to focus training at this to reduce Theta. Once his Theta reduces to the norm, it will lead to a reduction in day dreaming, better focus, increase motivation, better organization and etc.
There are quite a few types of QEEG profiles for ADHD children who may have similar behavioral symptoms. So a QEEG or Brain Mapping is highly recommended so that we can tailor a specific intervention for your child.
Neurofeedback and Behavioral Modification
The neurofeedback therapy we provide also has a behavioral therapy component. In addition to training the brain to change its brain waves (EEG), we are also applying behavioral modification training for your child to be able to sit still for a longer period of time. This is similar to the OT or behavioral therapy done at other centers.

Biological based Intervention -
The biochemistry part of our intervention ensures that your child’s brain can change with neurofeedback and other therapies. When you put your child through any therapy, the brain must be able to adapt so that there can be changes in their behavior and mental abilities. For the brain to be able to change, it must not be exposed to any toxins and will need to have enough of the right nutrients to repair and develop.
Toxins are known to cause neuro-
Nutrients are known to be essential for brain repair and development. For example, if you child is deficient in iron, it will slow down brain development. A deficiency in specific proteins can inhibit brain repair and growth.
At Spectrum Learning, our biochemistry assessments will allow you to find out if your child is exposed to any toxins and whether your child has the right nutrients for brain repair and development.
The biochemistry assessment will lead to a recommended regime of nutritional supplements. Many ADHDs are either lacking in or have excess of specific nutrients that affects brain function. These basic supplements are easily available over the counter, but our tests will let parents know exactly what their child needs.
He will need to reduce high potassium foods in his diet and take zinc supplements.
He will also benefit from taking Calcium and Magnesium supplements. The excessive
Boron and Molybdenum indicates that he also needs B-
Some children are exposed to toxic elements such as mercury and lead. These can be the causes of ADHD. We will recommend a detoxification program for them. Many parents see remarkable changes after the detoxification.
B) For this child, his hair analysis (HTMA) shows he is exposed to a range of toxic elements, including Lead and Mercury. A detoxification regime is highly recommended for him.
Other biological factors will include allergies, digestive problems, breathing difficulties, sleep apnea and etc. Our staff are trained to recommend interventions to address these conditions.
Other intervention methods
Other intervention methods includes:
Studies show that these have limited effect on its own. However, when combined with neurofeedback and biochemistry intervention, the effectiveness is significantly increased.
Caution on Physical Exercise training:
It is our opinion that if a child has exposure to toxins, rigorous physical exercises or brain activation training should be avoided. Our body usually shuts down when exposed to most toxins as a way to protect itself. Rigorous exercise or brain activation training will increase circulation. This may result in more toxins entering the brain. So be sure to test your child before committing to an exercise program.
