The use of neurofeedback with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and Asperger’s is a relatively new field but rapidly expanding field, with around 20 studies published since 2002. ASD or Asperger’s has been found to respond well to “connectivity-guided” or
“assessment-guided” EEG biofeedback. Patients do a qEEG brain maps which indicate which areas have excessive connectivity, and which have deficient connectivity, and tailor protocols are then created using sequential (bipolar) montages. A 2013 published review of treatments for autism gave neurofeedback a recommendation grade of B as an intervention for behavioral and cognitive symptoms of ASD (see Frye et. al., 2013).
Neurofeedback has been shown to enhance neuropsychological functioning and to lessen autistic symptoms, and the effects have shown to last in follow up studies after two years.
