Neurofeedback is a useful intervention in clinicial practice, but how can we help those living in remote areas who don’t have ready access to clinical services? This presentation will provide an overview of a model for remote supervision of neurofeedback that has been successfully used for the past six years to assist clients in home and school environments. Outcome data from one school will be briefly presented, but the main focus will be on the model itself.
A newly developed web-based software application that includes database capabilities, secure transfer of session files and symptom tracking software that automatically graphs progress across a range of variables will also be demonstrated.
