Using The EEG to Enhance Student Experience in School

SERIES #3

Using The EEG to Enhance Student Experience in School

Wednesday, December 8th
12:00 – 1:00pm Eastern Time

For many of our school-aged clients, the qEEG data is collected to enhance the neurofeedback training; however, this data can be utilized well beyond the application to neurofeedback to enhance other aspects of the child’s environment. More often than not, academic performance is a principle concern when parents seek an evaluation for their children and they look to us for expertise that occasionally feels beyond their scope.

Join in for a discussion about how we can use EEG data to further educational goals that parents have for their children. We’ll use a case study to make clear what information you can provide in your reports to most aid families in their quest for a positive school experience and will share concrete advice that you can pass on to families to facilitate interactions with schools in regards to IEP and 504 plans.
