Brain Wave Testing at Absolute Health

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first brain wave test to help diagnose attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children by measuring brainwaves. The protocol will help health care providers more accurately determine whether ADHD is the cause of a particular behavioral problem.

Dr. Sara Penton, of Absolute Health, in Scottsdale, offers the brain wave test, as well as neurofeedback, to help overcome many of the symptoms associated with brain wave imbalance. She states, “The brain wave test identifies unbalanced brain wave patterns that may be related to focus and attention issues, while the neurofeedback is designed to teach children how to better regulate their brain wave patterns. We find that when a child learns how to do this, many of the issues improve—they become calmer, more focused and better able to concentrate.”
