CogMed – Improve Working Memory

or Call (07) 5578 2000

Children’s Occupational Therapy

Working Memory is critical for focusing, resisting distractions, and for complex thinking. When children have poor working memory and notice that they are not able to learn as quickly and easily as their peers, they are very quick to label themselves as “dumb” and lose the natural confidence and engagement children have to learn.

Proven Results

Studies consistently show that problems with attention and learning are often caused by poor working memory. The Cogmed program has been developed by leading neuroscientists to develop working memory, and research and clinical data show improvements in academic performance following Cogmed training.

8 out of 10 users who complete training show measurable effects and parents and teachers also report improved social skills, taking initiative, remembering instructions, and completing assignments more independently.

More details about the extensive scientific backing behind the Cogmed program, can be found in the Research and Results tab.

Consistant Outcomes

The Cogmed program research and clinical data show improvements in learning outcomes and grades following Cogmed training. Parents and teachers also report improved social skills, taking initiative, remembering instructions, and completing assignments more independently. The objective is better academic results, particularly in reading comprehension and math.

Significant Benefits

Working memory is critical for focusing, resisting distractions, and for complex thinking. Improved working memory capacity generalises to improved attention and learning capacity and  8 out of 10 users who complete training show measurable effects in working memory. Research and clinical data show improvements in learning outcomes grades following Cogmed training.

Cogmed is able to improve academic results, particularly in reading comprehension and math.  That holds true for those with ADHD, learning problems, traumatic brain injury and specific learning disabilities. It is also often true for concentration problems and poor academic performance. Research shows that working memory is one of the best predictors of academic success and that working memory is particularly important for reading comprehension and math ability.
