Parent Ed Night

Innovative Assessment and Treatment for Autism, ADHD and Learning Disabilities

Monday, October 24, 2016
Sundling Jr High School 7:00 - 8:30 pm

Come to this free workshop that is open to anyone in the local community. In this presentation, Dr. O'Donnell will discuss the innovative QEEG (brainmap) assessment and Neurofeedback treatment for various neurological disorders, including anxiety and post-concussion. Neurotherapy will address the irregularities of the brain that are linked to the presenting symptoms and biofeedback is when the organism uses its own information or feedback to regulate itself. Based on the brainmap, he trains any irregularities by bringing these values to the norm resulting in remediation in symptoms or behavior. Dr. O'Donnell will discuss the efficacy of Neurofeedback treatment for Autism, AD(H)D and Learning Disabilities.

Dr. Joseph O'Donnell (MA, MBA, PhD) is a Board Certified Neurotherapist and founder of the Northwest Biofeedback Center. He takes a relaxed, easygoing approach to working with clients, especially children, is genuinely concerned with his clients' issues and has strong empathy towards their problems.
