19-Channel Neurofeedback in an Adolescent with FASD

David W. Hallman

Abstract


Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD), resulting from gestational exposure to ethanol alcohol, can result in a wide range of lifelong and severe challenging behaviors with a concomitant lowered quality of life. This article presents the results of neurofeedback treatment (80 sessions over 14 months) with an adolescent diagnosed with FASD and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and who had a significantly low social adaptive quotient (<1 percentile) and marginally low intelligence (13th percentile). Significant neural dysregulation, as measured by quantitative electroencephalography, resolved almost entirely. This occurred with a parallel improvement of his challenging behaviors as subjectively reported by his family and one of his workers.
