There are six main types of neurofeedback training that can be conducted:
- Frequency training
- Infra-low frequency training
- Z-Score training
- Slow cortical potential training
Currently, there is a lack of evidence suggesting one type of neurofeedback to be better than the other.
The choice of training depends on factors such as:
- the presenting symptoms of the client
- the client’s suitability (determined by factors such as age, sensitivities, trauma and medical history)
- logistical factors such as the availability and distance to neurofeedback service providers.
Ultimately, treatment involves a collaborative relationship between the practitioner and client, in order to ensure the client’s needs are met and the best outcomes are reached.
