Course Description:
Electroenchalographic (EEG) biofeedback, commonly referred to as neurofeedback (NF), records the electrical activity of the brain and has been used to treat symptoms of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder since the 1970s. Nearly all research on NF has been conducted in clinical settings and has examined symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity; no studies have directly examined academic achievement. To date, only a handful of studies have researched the use of NF in public school settings and, until now, none have explicitly examined its use as an intervention to improve academic achievement. This session will present the findings of the first study on the use of NF to improve reading fluency and comprehension.

Learning Objectives:
Professionals who complete this webinar will:

  • Describe neurofeedback
  • Distinguish neurofeedback from other interventions used in school settings
  • Explain potential use of neurofeedback in schools
  • Describe literature on neurofeedback and academic achievement
  • Cite sources for additional information on neurofeedback

Presenter Bio:
Jeff La Marca, Ph.D., M.A, B.A.,
Jeff La Marca, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Special Education at Seton Hall University. He has many years of experience as a public school elementary classroom teacher and later as a music specialist. His interest in special education stems from considerable work as an advocate for exceptional individuals and a desire to help all students excel. At Seton Hall, he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on special education and assessment. Dr. La Marca's research interests focus on the use of efficacious interventions for individuals with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Specifically, he is examining the use of neurofeedback as an intervention in schools. Research suggests that neurofeedback may be useful for improving academic performance in children with ADHD. His current research study, "Evaluation of Artifact-Controlled Electroencephalographic (EEG) Training: A Pilot Study," is now underway at Seton Hall University as part of the PIRATE Project.
