Wholehearted Parenting – TEACHING KIDS TO “USE THEIR BRAIN”…CUTTING EDGE BRAIN BASED THERAPY

If you have a child who struggles with anxiety, ADHD, autism, or learning issues, I know you’ll want to listen to our conversation today.

Often, when a child receives a diagnosis of an emotional, behavioral or learning disorder, one of the early treatments offered is medication. Certainly there is a role for medication and I believe when paired with therapy, can be an effective treatment. However, medication is not something to be taken lightly. Listen in as we explore cutting edge therapies, ones that are non-invasive and quite effective. Therapy that actually teaches and empowers both children and teens to “use their brain”!

I’ve invited my guest Anne Arena to join our conversation today. Anne was initially trained as a school psychologist, then continued her training in clinical neuropsychology. She has worked as part of a diagnostic team, providing differential diagnoses for complex cases, and has a private practice in Ellicott City, MD. Anne has added cognitive training and neurofeedback into her treatment regime, to address attentional and stress related disorders. Her work in neurofeedback and cognitive retraining has become a crucial method in helping children and adults improve their cognitive functioning.

Hope you’ll join us!
