Cogmed is an evidence-based training program that improves working memory. Delivered via iPad, it is particularly beneficial for kids who struggle to follow multi-step instructions, comprehend reading or complete math tasks. It is also available to teens and adults who struggle with attention dysfunction. The training is conducted under the supervision of a licensed psychologist.
Cogmed is offered for preschool children (JM module), school-age children (RM module) and adults (QM module). It has been effectively used with the general population as well as in individuals with ADHD, working memory deficits due to learning disability, cochlear implants, stroke, acquired brain injury, etc.
If you or your child have difficulty concentrating, ignoring irrelevant information, holding several chunks of information in mind, planning and organizing, getting started and staying on task, then Cogmed training can be helpful in resolving these issues. We have many years of experience working with children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and memory training has proven to be especially effective for ADHD children and young adults.
Recent metanalysis (based on 36 research studies) published in “Nature” magazine by European ADHD Guidelines Group (EAGG) suggests that Cogmed training can lead to significant improvement in ADHD-related attention symptoms.
The Wise Family has been a part of the development of Cogmed since 2009. The exciting new version of Cogmed training is only available through professional channels and The Wise Family is proud to be part of a worldwide network of Qualified Cogmed Practices.
