Cogmed Working Memory Training
A home-based program that helps people with attention problems by training and increasing their working memory capacity. Clinically proven results demonstrate that after training, people can improve their ability to concentrate, control their impulsive behavior and better utilize complex reasoning skills. In addition, post-training evaluations show that Cogmed helps kids perform better in school. Parents and teachers reported improved social skills, initiative, remembering instructions, and completing assignments more independently. Adults have reported improvements in their ability to stay focused, ignore distractions, plan next steps, remember instructions, and start and finish tasks.
The program includes: an initial interview, a start-up session, 5 weeks of training from home with weekly coaching calls, a wrap-up meeting, a 6-month follow-up interview, access to the Cogmed training web, and the optional Cogmed extension program (12 months). This program is appropriate for preschool children, adolescents, adults, and elderly.
