Wednesday, May 11 qEEG and Neurofeedback: Breakthrough Neuroscience Applications That Improve the Diagnosis and Treatment of Emotional, Behavioral, and Learning Issues (in person), 10 a.m. to noon. Please join us in the Brubeck room to learn more about qEEG. The use of sophisticated technology to intervene and improve brain function is just beginning. It promises a transformation of practice in many fields: education, rehabilitation, neurology, psychiatry and psychology. Qualitative electroencephalography (qEEG) is the process of recording the electrical activity of the brain through the scalp and then comparing it to a widely used database of similar recordings from individuals of the same age/sex without malfunction symptoms. This allows us to identify and image very specific locations and types of dysregulated brain activity, leading to improved diagnosis and treatment recommendations. Neurofeedback is the direct training of the brain to improve the regulation of its activity in these identified areas, leading to improved functioning. In this presentation, James Cooney, LCSW, a clinical social worker whose specialties include ADHD, LD, anxiety, depressive disorders, developmental trauma, and anger management, will provide an overview of these related technologies and their use to refine the diagnosis and treatment of attentional, emotional and behavioral difficulties that impact children’s learning. Presented by SPED*NET Wilton in partnership with Wilton Library and Wilton Public Schools. Registration required. Please register online or call 203-762-6334.
