BFB – Biofeedback
What is BFB (biofeedback)?
This is a hardware-computer technique using various sensors (acoustic, visual, tactile, electromyographic) aimed at transmitting information from the body to special equipment that converts signals into a picture or sound.
This technique is suitable for children:
– with autism spectrum disorder (ASD);
– with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD);
– with Down’s syndrome;
– with cerebral palsy;
– with learning disabilities (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, etc.);
– with a delay in speech (DSD) and psychoverbal development (DPSD) (alalia, dyslalia, etc.);
– with problems of psychomotor development;
– with emotional and effective disorders (neurosis, stress, anxiety, etc.);
– with communication problems.
What tasks does BFB-training cope with?
– Improves concentration.
– Improves memory.
– Reduces the level of excitability of the nervous system.
– Stimulates speech function, namely:
– improves speech perception;
– contributes to the formation of conscious expressive speech;
– improves the ability to process information;
– improves articulation;
– evens out the violation of tone and asymmetry of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ);
– improves motor and cognitive functions, and also reduces negative behavioral and emotional manifestations.
Also indications for biofeedback training are:
– Nocturnal and daytime enuresis;
– Stuttering, tics, anxiety;
– Sleep disturbance, chronic stress, exhaustion of the nervous system.
BFB training has practically no contraindications (the only contraindication is an individual reaction to wearable sensors). The biofeedback procedure is an interesting and exciting activity for children, which makes it possible to conduct a session and get results in a state that is comfortable for the child.
