Cogmed is an evidence based program to help improve working memory of children and adults. Cogmed is for children who are struggling in school, adults who are experiencing information overload, someone who’s experienced a neurological injury such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) or stroke, or natural changes in cognitive function due to aging.
Deficits in working memory can affect an individual’s ability to focus attention, control impulses and solve problems. Impairments of working memory are found in a wide range of individuals who experience attention deficits, such as children and adults with ADD or ADHD, persons with learning disabilities and victims of stroke or traumatic brain injury. Cogmed is based on a breakthrough discovery that individuals can train and improve their working memory.
Through a combination of software-based memory exercises and personal coaching, participants engage in a challenging five to eight week program using an Internet-connected computer. Cogmed’s program has been validated by high-impact research in controlled scientific studies.
