Why Is Cogmed Different?

Why Is Cogmed Different?

Three reasons Cogmed is different from other “brain training”

1

Sientifically Researched

Cogmed is developed by leading neuroscientist and proven to be effective in rigorous research published in peer-reviewed journals.

2

Sustainable Change

Cogmed training is a scientifically determined program that changes the way you process information and research shows the effects last once training is completed. It is not about teaching behavioural strategies for coping with memory deficits.

3

Support of a qualified provider

Training is provided excusively by a qualified Cogmed provider, through an alied health care professional and/or an educator. Support provided by the Cogmed provider is critical to staying motivated and completing the program and building metacognitives skills.

Cogmed has by far the largest body of research of any cognitive training program available, supporting its effectiveness in improving working memory. Beginning with Dr. Klingberg’s 2005 study showing strong results in a placebo-controlled multi-centre trial for children with ADHD, leading worldwide researchers have since added to Cogmed research. This research has proven Cogmed’s efficacy with a wide variety of populations including ADHD, ABI, learning disabilities, and even typical developing and aging.

Who is it for?
