Cogmed Working Memory Training is an evidence-based online program for helping children, adolescents and adults sustainably improve attention by training their working memory.
Working memory is crucial for focusing, complex thinking and being able to appropriately shut out environmental distractions. Improved working memory capacity generalises to improved attention and impulse control.
Based on extensive scientific research, Cogmed is an intensive program that is done from home under the guidance of our qualified Cogmed Coach, Occupational Therapist, Julia Eggles. The program can be short and intense with the classic 5 week protocol or offered in shorter training sessions over longer periods for busy families.
80% of users who complete the training show measurable effects. In children, research shows improved academic performance following Cogmed training. Parents and teachers report observing improvement in a child’s social skills, initiative, instruction recall and increased independence in completion of assignments.
