Attention Learning Center has three locations in
southern California (San Juan Capistrano, Irvine, Encinitas) that
specialize in the assessment and treatment of ADD, ADHD, Aspergers,
Autism, learning disabilities, anxiety and closed head injuries. Using
the most cutting edge brain scanning (QEEG) equipment we can ascertain
the most accurate diagnoses and even specific subtypes and for each
individual client and develop a successful individualized treatment
plan including biological treatments such as non-drug Neurofeedback.
EEG Biofeedback (Neurofeedback) Therapy was begun by
Joel Lubar, Ph.D. in 1976, at the University of Tennessee as a non-drug
treatment for Attention Deficit Disorders. Dr. Lubarís early work
demonstrated IQ increases and behavioral improvements for these
Since then, research has shown that this procedure can be used for
children and adults with Learning Disabilities, Autism, Asperger's and to
improve the cognitive functioning of elite athletes and others.
Our New Name
Because we are able to help people with conditions in
addition to ADD, we have changed our name from The Original ADD
Treatment Centers to Attention Learning Center. What we havenít changed
is an underlying treatment philosophy that centers around always doing
whatís best for our clients. For a more detailed discussion of this
important issue, click here.
The Attention Learning Center is headed by one of the
original researchers who pioneered the use of NeuroFeedback Therapy,
Michael Linden, Ph.D. If
you live near Orange or San Diego County, you can have this nationally
known pioneer develop your treatment plan. He published the first
controlled studies on NeuroFeedback Therapy (Journal of Biofeedback &
Self-Regulation, 1996) which have been recognized with awards from
the California and the National Biofeedback Societies.
He was also
centrally involved in the research of brain mapping (Monastra, Lubar,
Linden 1999 & 2001) that is generating professional interest well beyond
EEG Biofeedback Therapy community. The results of these studies
demonstrate that NeuroFeedback Therapy can be a vital component in
treating ADD/ADHD, LD, Autism and Asperger's Syndrome. These improvements
come without side effects and remain permanent for years.
am pleased to recommend Dr. Michael Linden who
has been actively using QEEG and neurofeedback for more than two
decades. He has been publishing studies on QEEG brain imaging testing
for ADD, and Neurofeedback for ADHD and Autism. He is one of the
pioneers in the use of QEEG and neurofeedback for the evaluation and
treatment of autistic spectrum disorder.

Dr. Linden is a Clinical Psychologist and Nationally
Certified in Neurofeedback and Biofeedback. He is the director of The Attention Learning Center, which has offices located in San Juan
Capistrano, Irvine and Encinitas, California. Heís repeatedly been asked
to be a key note speaker at professional conferences throughout the
Our colleagues have benefited from Dr Lindenís technical
innovations such as the use of continuous performance tests to gage the
improvements from Neurofeedback Therapy and vital research in brain
mapping. Currently, Dr. Linden is in the early stages of developing
Neurofeedback treatment procedures for learning disabled and brain
We do not want to become the biggest,
we want to remain the BEST.
"...We are very pleased with the
results of Dr. Lindenís Neurofeedback treatment program and hope that
other children and their families can enjoy the successes we have."
brought our granddaughter to MPC and I was so impressed with her
treatment that I asked if someone my age (55) could be helped. It has
been two months since I finished my last treatment - This has been
truly one of THE most significant experiences of my life."
