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.
