Cogmed Working Memory Training is a solution for individuals who are held back by their working memory capacity. That includes several large groups: children and adults with attention deficits or learning disorders, those with acquired brain injury, and adults experiencing information overload or the natural effects of aging.
80% of trainees who complete their Cogmed training notice significant improvements:
Working memory capacity is increased, leading to better ability to focus, follow instructions, and stay on task.
8 out of 10 trainees who complete Cogmed training show measurable improvement in working memory capacity leading to improved attention, behaviour and daily functioning.
For children, parents report improvement in social skills, taking initiative, remembering instructions, and completing assignments independently. The goal is better academic performance, particularly in math and reading comprehension, as well as social awareness.
For adults, the effects are being able to stay focused, resist distractions, plan activities, complete tasks, and follow and contribute to complex discussions. The goal is improved professional performance and attentional stamina.
