Malaysia Clinical Neurofeedback | Hand flapping Management

Experts in the field who have studied self-stimulatory behaviors have hypothesized that there are two primary reasons why individuals with autism engage in these unusual repetitive behaviors. 

The first theory involves hyposensitivity, that is, the individual’s body craves stimulation. Basically, the self-stimulatory behavior serves to arouse one’s nervous system and provides the individual with some form of internal satisfaction. This is thought to be the result of a dysfunctional system in the brain and/or the nervous system.

The second theory involves the opposite function, that is, hypersensitivity. In this theory, self-stimulatory behaviors are not engaged in to excite one’s nervous system, but to calm one self. This could be the result of an environment that is over-stimulating and the individual with autism is experiencing sensory overload, therefore engages in self-stimulatory behaviors not to arouse the nervous system, but to block out the over-stimulating environment.

It might seem logical to simply intervene and try to stop the individual from engaging in the self-stimulatory behavior; however, this strategy is not recommended. Since the individual is engaging in these behaviors for a reason, if we attempt to interrupt and stop the behavior, it is possible that another behavior, that could possibly be more stigmatizing or even harmful, could develop.
If a self-stimulatory behavior interferes with the individual’s ability to pay attention to their environment and participate in important activities, there is a basis for concern. Intervention should involve looking at the sensory channel that is being stimulated and replacing the self-stimulatory behavior with another more socially acceptable behavior that will provide the same type of reinforcement.
Here are some common examples of self-stimulatory behaviors as they relate to sensory channels.
Visual: staring at lights, repetitive blinking, moving fingers in front of the eyes, hand-flapping
Auditory: tapping ears, snapping fingers, unusual vocalizations
Tactile: rubbing the skin with one’s hands or with another object, scratching
Vestibular: rocking front to back, rocking side-to-side
Taste: placing body parts or objects in one’s mouth, licking objects
Smell: smelling objects, sniffing people

By utilizing the technology of Clinical Neurofeedback, we can help you to deal with the
hyposensitivity or hypersensitivity issue. Clinical Neurofeedback training can deal with the root cause which is the brain arousal problem.
We will use a safe, non-invasive and no side effect method to peek into your brain and understand your brain arousal level. Feel free to contact us for an initial consultation

1st Malaysian International Integrative Healthcare Conference 2017 - Clinical Neurofeedback by Hiro Koo

Thanks the Medical University CUCMS for inviting me to share my knowledge in clinical neurofeedback training with all healers Who come from UK, Australia, India and other Asia Pacific Region countries. I am glad to be part of the experts here to provide effective intervention plans for children with special needs.

Special thanks to my psychology assistant for helping me today.

Title: Clinical Neurofeedback: Brain training for children with special needs  

Human brain can be trained at any age and new neurons are produced throughout our life. The term of neuroplasticity is well accepted nowadays. Clinical Neurofeedback is based on the concept of neuroplasticity that trains the brain like a muscle. Clinical Neurofeedback is the clinical application of EEG Biofeedback method. It can be applied to some diagnosed (mental) conditions such as (ADHD, Autism, Learning Difficulties, Tics Disorder, Mood Issues). Clinical Neurofeedback is a form of tailored to individual needs training procedure used by trained practitioners to optimize various brain functions. This is essentially a way of teaching individuals on how to self-regulate their own brainwaves. It is safe, non-invasive and painless. A case study will be discussed on how Clinical Neurofeedback helps a child who diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder to reduce his autism symptoms and improving executive functioning. Different brainwaves profile of the various disorders will be discussed as well. We will also discuss about how Clinical Neurofeedback can effectively regulate different brainwaves profile of children who diagnosed with ADHD or for those who are having similar brainwaves pattern in order to reduce the undesirable symptoms of ADHD. At last, the heart of the potential of Clinical Neurofeedback to help manage Tourette syndrome and tics disorder will be discussed too.

Keywords:   Tourette syndrome, Tics Disorder, ADHD, Autism, Clinical Neurofeedback

Review ( Clinical Neurofeedback Training Malaysia for ADHD case) - Muhammad Takif Case

Client Name:  Muhammad T
Age: Around 10 years old

I am a mother also a teacher who faced a lot of difficulties in taking care of my son. 
Before following the clinical neurofeedback training sessions, my son will get angry very easily as he cannot manage his anger. He was quite aggressive and we cannot force him to do something that he does not like to do. Besides, he was unable to sit still and was fidget. 

During the course of training, he became more obedient like he was willing to tidy up his own toy and cleaned up the floor. He also showed other improvements like he was calmer and more relax. Besides, he tended to pay more attention when we were talking to him. He even can comfort and take care of his little brother. 

After 10 sessions of training, he can sit properly and no more fidgeting. 

Throughout the period, teacher tended to pay more attention and observed him as he need more care. His teacher also realized some improvements in his behaviors. After moving him into another class with less student, he showed more positive behaviors and he was less aggressive if compared to last time. 

In academic area, he can focus and pay more attention during teaching and learning. In addition, he managed to finish his school works and understood more easily about the concepts that he had learned. 

In curriculum, he became more active. He was willing to follow instructions during activity. He even represented his school in Nasheed Competition. 

In short, my son showed significant improvements after the training sessions with Hiro Koo.
