Anybody try neurofeedback?

My son is 10 and has been in a remedial school for 3 years now. He is very inattentive and I've recently come across the Sluggish Cognitive Tempo information. It summarises his battles perfectly.

He was on Ritalin but he started getting eye tics and his appetite decreased significantly. He's severely underweight as it is and doesn't eat much.
We tried Concerta as well and it didn't help much. We took him off of meds completely as we didn't see a huge difference in his scholastic abilities.

He's now started Neurofeedback and has 8 sessions under the belt.
I briefly spoke to his teacher today and she hasn't noticed any difference as yet.

He goes back to mainstream schooling next year and I'm quite concerned.

Has anybody had success with neurofeedback?
