Unveiling a Compassionate Approach to Managing ADHD in Children

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a prevalent neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts millions of children across the globe. Traditional approaches often combine behavioral therapy with medication. However, as our understanding of the brain’s adaptability has deepened, so have the avenues for treatment. BrainCore Therapy, a leading-edge form of neurofeedback therapy, presents a drug-free and effective alternative for managing ADHD.

Understanding the Impact of ADHD on Children

ADHD can dramatically affect a child’s life, manifesting as persistent inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. These symptoms can lead to challenges in learning, socializing, and overall emotional well-being. Amidst these challenges, BrainCore Therapy emerges as a hopeful solution, reducing reliance on medication.

Decoding BrainCore Therapy: A Drug-Free Path to Better Focus and Behavior

BrainCore Therapy utilizes the principles of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to alter and improve its functionalities. This therapy involves non-invasive sessions where children engage with visual or auditory feedback that trains them to modify their brainwave activity. This method not only improves concentration but also enhances impulse control and overall emotional and cognitive health.

The BrainCore Therapy Experience

BrainCore Therapy starts with an initial “brain mapping” session using a QEEG (Quantitative Electroencephalogram). In this process, a specialized cap is placed onto the patient’s head to measure and display brainwaves in real time. This critical step allows the technician to analyze the brain’s electrical activity thoroughly and develop a customized treatment plan. In subsequent sessions, only a few electrodes (no needles or sticky tape) are needed to continue monitoring the brainwave activity and provide ongoing biofeedback. During these sessions, the child engages in specific activities such as watching a music video or movie, which are carefully chosen to encourage the development of stable and effective brainwave patterns. As optimal patterns are achieved the screen brightens or advances providing easy to understand visual feedback. Through consistent practice, this method helps retrain the brain, fostering healthier patterns of response and significantly improving symptoms associated with ADHD.

Scientific Backing and Parental Feedback

The efficacy of BrainCore Therapy is well-supported by research. Studies indicate significant improvements in focus, attention, and academic performance in children with ADHD who undergo this therapy. For instance, a meta-analysis highlights its effectiveness in managing inattention and impulsivity comparably to traditional medications. Long-term follow-ups also suggest sustained benefits, underscoring its role as a lasting solution for ADHD management.

Parents of our patients have shared heartfelt testimonials of transformation post-BrainCore Therapy. From dramatic improvements in school performance to enhanced daily functioning, the feedback underscores the therapy’s impact. For many families, BrainCore Therapy has been a game-changer, providing their children with the tools to succeed and thrive without medication.

Hi Dr. Will,

I hope you are having a great holiday season! I wanted to share an update on Aiden. Even though our sessions have ended, I continue to see ongoing improvements from the neurofeedback.

Around Halloween, I received an unsolicited email from Aiden’s teacher, who happens to be the same teacher he had last year. She expressed how impressed she was with Aiden’s ability to stay engaged and focused despite all the excitement of Halloween.

On Friday, we had parent-teacher conferences, and I can’t even begin to describe the positive change in his grades. Once again, his teacher mentioned that he’s like a completely different child! He no longer gets frustrated or overwhelmed, he approaches challenges with a positive attitude and when he sees himself getting distracted he removes himself from the situation and finds a quiet corner in the classroom where he can focus!

I’ve been raving about you and neurofeedback, so I’m confident you will receive some inquiries. Please feel free to share this email with anyone who might be on the fence about making the commitment.


I am so grateful for Dr. Will at Dutchess Braincore Therapy! We brought our son to Dr Will because after 5 years of school teachers’ reports of our child being disruptive and having difficulties in class, we knew something had to be done on our part. Medication was not an option for us. We knew our child was bright and thought that he would be able to discipline himself if we could figure out how to accomplish the skill.

We received great feedback from his teacher almost immediately. Then he faltered a bit and I became skeptical. We finished our treatments in the summer so were not able to really know the results until the new school year. During our first parent-teacher conference I was brought to tears when the teachers said that if I hadn’t mentioned that our son has ADHD they would have had no idea of the condition. This was affirmed with his report card, all A’s and behavior and informational chart listed almost all 4 (Above age level). Thank you to Dr Will and his amazing staff for all that you have done for us we can’t be happier with the results. I would highly recommend BrainCore Therapy with Dr Will.


Before seeing Dr. Will for Braincore Therapy, Matthew was on medication for ADHD. Although the medication did help some, he was still struggling to focus and was left with undesirable side effects. As a result, we were all left frustrated and at a loss for what to do next as we knew that he needed more help. Medication was not the answer. We decided to try BrainCore Therapy and found Dr. Will.

For Matthew, the sessions were life-changing. The sessions were easy, and Dr. Will is very accommodating. Throughout this process, Dr. Will was patient and kind, walking us through every step of the way. He genuinely cares about all of his patients. With Dr. Will’s help, we have seen an incredible improvement in his attentiveness. He is able to focus and remain on task. His grades have dramatically changed for the better. On top of all this, we were able to cut his ADHD medication in half, which eliminated the negative side effects he was having. We will also be continuing treatment with the goal of eliminating medication entirely.

I would recommend this to anyone who does not want to deal with the side effects of medication.
