If neurofeedback providers are not licensed and are rendering clinical evaluations,
interpreting test results or setting protocols for a medical or mental health issue, they may be operating illegally and unsafely.
Questions to Ask Your Neurotherapy Provider:
1. What type of License do you have that qualifies you to work with my/my child’s condition? If you do not have a license, is there someone on the premises at all times supervising you who does? Is this person fully trained and experienced in neurotherapy?
2. How long have you been doing neurotherapy?
3. How many clients have you seen in your neurotherapy career? In a typical day or week?
4. What type of conditions do you typically work with?
5. Do you utilize a wide range of equipment and protocols to offer an individualized approach or do you offer a one-size-fits all approach with only one or two types of interventions?
6. Do you keep up with the latest developments in the field by receiving regular training and professional development in a variety of neurotherapy interventions and approaches? Are these trainings accredited and if so, by what accreditation body? (preferably, these events should be accredited by one’s professional association such as The American Psychological Association and/or by the Biofeedback Certification of America).
