Cogmed Working Memory Training is a home-based computer program that helps people of all ages with attention problems by training and increasing their working memory capacity. Clinically proven results demonstrate that after training, people improve their ability to concentrate, control impulsive behavior and better utilize complex reasoning skills. In the end, better academic and professional performance can be achieved.
We use working memory every day. It is the ability to keep information in your mind for a short time, focus on a task and remember what to do next. With a working memory deficit, it is difficult to stay focused, ignore distractions, plan next steps, remember instructions, or start and finish tasks. Studies show a deficit in working memory often leads to difficulties in school, especially in reading comprehension and math.
After completing the program, parents and teachers typically report that students have improved social skills, take more initiative, remember instructions and complete assignments more independently. Adults complete the training intervention to improve their professional performance and attentional stamina. Call or email for more information or to schedule a free consultation.
