Neurofeedback for Autism and Asperger's

We are thinking of buying a neurofeedback machine and learning to use it with Jessica for her autism, and Philip and Thomas for ADHD. We tried it once. It's pretty cool. We can not find someone close to do it. Also our insurance will not cover it. We know an audiologist in Munchen that will work with us. We buy the machine (maybe even used), and sell it used to another family when we are done. For autism it can take years. For ADHD it takes about 6-9 months. Many kids with ADHD go off medication, and stay off it.

Have you heard of Brain Balance Centers ? They have centers across the country that do a lot of work with ADHD and spectrum disorder children. I have two friend who have put their children through the program and are thrilled with the results. Hope this helps!

Can I help? I am a nurse certified in NeuroFeedBack Therapy. Have equipment and will travel. Pity, I was just in Germany a couple of weeks ago!
