Really surprising - several kids with ADD/ADHD who did NOT speak English have now been successful using Neuroliminal Training in different countries, including Norway, Brazil, and Mexico. In addition, infants who were not speaking were also affected postively.
There are now five types of effective recognized professional treatment for ADD, ADHD and Autism used today by different clinicians:
1. Drug treatments (Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, Strattera, etc). Most of these drugs contain methylphenidate, the same ingredient as "speed" on the street where it's highly illegal and addictive to many. They do help education authorities to "control" a child while at school. Some schools even get a subsidy for every Ritalin user. PERHAPS a conflict of interest - YOU THINK? This type of "medication" does NOT "cure" anything. Suppressing symptoms can also suppress potential. In addition, there are many drug side effects and addictions as serious drawbacks to using Ritalin and similar drugs. You can check on Dangers of Ritalin if you aren't convinced about its dangers. Is that what you want for your child?
2. Allergy treatments. For several years, I worked with another researcher developing End-Point-Titration (EPT) in a Florida allergy clinic. In my opinion, EPT is the only truly effective method of allergy/sensitivity cure therapy. During that time, (EEG biofeedback was not known to me then), I used this technique along with others to successfully treat ADD/ADHD in several children. However, this EPT therapy is usually very expensive, ranging up to $10,000 in expensive "doctor" time to diagnose and treat.

3. EEG Biofeedback (EEG BF) aka Neurofeedback (NFB). Starting in the 70's, more and more clinicians have found that training to raise the SMR brain wave while controlling or lowering Theta works to alleviate or remove those symptoms of attention and concentration deficit, impulsive and hyperactive behavior, autism, epilepsy etc. The same drawback of very high cost is here as well, as this training in a clinic also requires hours and hours of expensive clinic/doctor time. Typical costs for 60 half hour training sessions for ADD/ADHD/autism runs from $3000 to $5,000. EEG Biofeedback (AKA neurofeedback) has been in use since the 1970s. It is completely safe (so safe that no state in the US even requires a license). Many research and personal reports show that well over 500,000 diagnosed ADD/ADHD persons have been "trained" out of these brain disorders with it. These kids sit quietly in class and learn and in most cases, their measured IQ goes up.
The data from dozens of clinicians and thousands of ADD/ADHD subjects shows with 40 half hour sessions, approximately 50% of ADD/ADHD trainees lose all the "brain problem" symptoms. With 60 half hour sessions, approximately 85% of ADD/ADHD trainees lose all the "brain problem" symptoms. "Success" in this training is considered to be the trainee sitting still in class, paying attention, learning easily, doing assigned homework in the time allotted and in many cases, an increase in tested IQ. Needless to say, getting off all dangerous drugs is also an important criterion.
What about the "other" 15%? Well, remember that ADD/ADHD is NOT a disease. It's more like a broad "continuum" ranging from the boy who eats candy at lunch and is hyper for the afternoon all the way up to non-communicating autism. Also remember that diagnosis of ADD, ADHD and Autism is more art than science and is done more for insurance than for therapy. Diagnosis and separation of ADD-Autism symptoms is a "guess" at best and many children are misdiagnosed by many different doctors.
4. Neuroliminal Brain Wave Training. Since April 2004, Dr Bate has conducted successful experiments in substituting a complex subliminal message on an inexpensive CD for the expensive EEG BF (or NF). The success rate is the same or better than EEG BF (NFB), but the cost of EEG BF (NFB) certainly makes NT only a fraction of the cost to any parent with ADD or ADHD kids and any adult with ADD or ADHD (or autism, Depression or other Brain Problems). In the experiments Dr Bate found that this "sleep" therapy may take as long as two or more months, but the ADD/ADHD participants experienced the same improvement as would be experienced by EEG BF (NFB), and the unlimited use during sleep adds to success percentage considerably.
An important factor is that the NT is guaranteed to work! No clinics do this! If used for 60 days without noticeable success (even with autism), return the CD package for refund!

Another very important success factor is "motivation" of the trainee. Some clinicians are not as good at this as others. This also applies to parents and teachers. Each child is an individual and different in some, or even many ways. Those children that are closer on the continuum to autism are the ones that mostly compose this 15%. These children take more sessions (up to 200 in one case reported by Dr Von Hilsheimer, but even these more serious cases may be trainable with EEG BF (NF). In addition, there are many nutritional therapies and allergy testing that can help dramatically. See Alternate Therapies.
One of the other features (besides low cost) of the Neuroliminal Brain Wave Training is that no real motivation is required. Simply sleep comfortably while it works on the unconscious mind to raise the SMR brain wave and lower the Theta brain wave (which is just what EEG BF (nf) does!)
