Cogmed is an online training program that improves working memory and attention in children, teenagers and adults.
Is working memory important?
Working memory is the ability to keep information in your mind for a short time, focus on a task and remembr what to do next. We use our working memory all the time – when we’re having a conversation, when we read, when we try to remember someone’s name, do mental maths calculations or write a story or essay.
Does Cogmed work?
Leading independent research teams worldwide have proven its efficacy in 100+ studies in peer-reviewed journals. This program is proven to improve working memory and attention. Studies show the benefits are substantial and long-term regardless of age and condition. Few if any programs are proven to produce such fast and lasting changes for struggling students.
