Is Lack of Attention ADHD or Something Else? Let’s Look at the Brain.

If you want to effectively change behavior, you have to look at the brain. In examining the brain with a quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG), one can differentiate ADD from several other neurological conditions.  All of these conditions require different treatments. Dr. Kowal will show how applying advanced technology using qEEGs can differentiate various neurological conditions and properly treat each of those conditions, often without psychiatric medications.
