Reduce over diagnosis by improving diagnostic accuracy by up to 97%.
It takes about 15–20 minutes to administer—including setup, clean up, and data collection.
The method works by collecting brainwave data and processing it into a report.
Founded by Cheryl Leong, MFT who has worked with ADHD and its co-occuring diagnosis for more than a decade across two continents. She was concerned at the number of families who were dissatisfied with their diagnostic process, medical treatment and psychotherapeutic interventions.
NEBA is the first of a new kind of medical device cleared by the FDA that uses brainwaves (EEG) to help clinicians conduct an ADHD test for children and adolescents (ages 6 – 17.99 years) withmore accurately diagnose. FDA created an entirely new category of medical device to regulate NEBA. These devices are called Neuropsychiatric Interpretive EEG-based Assessment Aids or NIEAs for short.
NEBA uses brainwaves (EEG) along with a clinician’s initial diagnostic impression to improve the accuracy of the ADHD diagnostic process. NEBA measures the electrical activity in the front part of the brain to derive a biomarker. NEBA then combines this information with the clinician’s diagnostic impression. Using this data and a patented method, NEBA categorizes children with ADHD symptoms into three groups:
Our FDA validation study (available from FDA’s website) showed that NEBA’s categorization can help clinicians reduce over diagnosis of ADHD to as low as 3%
Some third party payers do cover NEBA. There are thousands of payers in the United States. Each has its own payment policies. Learn more here.

It depends. The total out-of-pocket for NEBA will never be more than $425 and your out-of-pocket cost will likely be significantly less. Why?
