About Us

Attention Disorders Clinic provides evaluation, treatment, and ongoing management and support for children and adults with ADD, ADHD, Asperger’s and autistic spectrum disorders, executive function difficulties, and other related neuropsychological disorders such as anxiety and depression.

Our office is a collaborative effort providing comprehensive care for the whole family with both a medical practice and a separate psychology practice in one location. David Jubelirer M.D., Natalie Carter DNP, and Jenny Jones, APRN are the medical providers. The psychology practice of Aharon Shulimson Ph.D. encompasses psychological therapy services, biofeedback, and neurofeedback.

Attention Disorders Clinic was founded to provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date, care, diagnostic tools and testing, and treatment for patients with attention disorders. Our approach combines an understanding of current advances in neuroscience, recognizing that many problems are neurologic in origin and that these brain differences have behavioral consequences.

Our approach is to provide services for the whole family. Besides an extensive personal and family history, we offer FDA approved, research based brain mapping (QEEG) to ensure accuracy in diagnosis and guide treatment options.. Counseling, education, medication, supplements, genetic and neuropsychological testing, executive function coaching, and brain training using biofeedback and neurofeedback are tailored to individual needs.

It is our belief that helping you with specific challenges is critical for daily living, and the overall goal of successful treatment is to improve and maintain self-esteem and encourage independent growth.

Services

Quantitative EEG is sometimes recommended and performed in the office. The QEEG is used to help understand the underlying neurologic basis of attention problems and other conditions through computerized assessment of brain wave patterns. A patient’s brain waves are then compared to established norms for people of the same age and sex using sophisticated FDA approved software. Drs Jubelirer and Shulimson are among the few specialists in the Mountain West skilled in the interpretation and analysis of the Quantitative EEG and Brain-mapping.

Because the findings in ADD or ADHD are distinct ,QEEG is particularly useful in very young children when it is hard to know if the behaviors are just part of the normal developmental spectrum and in individuals who also may have depression or anxiety, etc.

Four distinct patterns of brain wave activity have been identified in ADHD:

1) Elevated theta wave and decreased beta wave activity.

2) Elevated beta wave activity.

3) Abnormal activity in the right temporal/parietal area.

4) Elevated alpha wave activity.

The QEEG results are used as an aid to significantly increase the accuracy of diagnosis, create a neurofeedback therapy program individualized to meet a person’s needs, as well as to reduce some of the “trial and error” involved in choosing medications.

Brain wave differences may also point to neurologic connections that serve to explain the basis of a variety of behaviors and additional personal life challenges.

Neurofeedback, also known as neurotherapy or EEG biofeedback, is a form of treatment that is used to change patterns of brain wave activity. When implemented by our experienced clinicians, it can greatly reduce or eliminate the need for medications in a variety of conditions.

For example, persons with a common form of ADHD have an excess of theta waves.

Over twenty years of research and clinical practice has shown that people can use neurofeedback to learn how to lower the

amount of theta waves their brains produce to within normal limits, thus improving their attention.

Neurofeedback is also used to treat anxiety, depression and other cognitive impairments caused by fibromyalgia, traumatic brain injury, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Typically, we perform a Quantitative EEG (hyperlink) test to assess an individual’s brain wave patterns and customize a neurofeedback program based on our findings.

Dr shulimson has over 15 years of experience performing neurofeedback. He is trained in the advanced practice of Loreta neurofeedback which “trains” multiple areas of brain differences simultaneously often resulting in fewer total neurofeedback sessions.

The neuropsychological evaluation involves an interview and the administration of selected tests chosen to learn more about brain function . The tests are typically pencil and paper type tests. Some tasks might be completed by the patient with assistance from a technician, but the majority of the tests require administration by a neuropsychologist or trained, skilled psychometrist. Neuropsychological tests are standardized, meaning that they are given in the same manner to all patients and scored in a similar manner time after time.

An individual’s scores on tests are interpreted by comparing their score to that of healthy individuals of similar age, education, gender, and/or ethnic background and to expected levels of functioning.Although individual scores are important, the neuropsychologist looks at all of the data from the evaluation to determine a pattern of cognitive strengths and weaknesses and, in turn, to understand more about how the brain is functioning.

We offer testing to assess strengths and weaknesses in executive functions and can provide strategies to improve skills that have not developed at an age appropriate level. Executive functions include the skills of planning, organizing things and ideas, initiating and completing tasks, forgetfulness, procrastination and time management, and understanding the big picture not just the individual details.
