Introducing Cogmed Working Memory Training

A breakthrough program for people with attention deficits

Until recently, it was considered impossible to improve people's attention. Research now shows that children who undergo Cogmed Working Memory Training improve their ability to concentrate and to control their impulses. They can achieve better academic performance in math and reading.

Cogmed Working Memory Training program is:

  • Specifically designed for people with attention deficits.
  • Software-based and coach-supported.
  • Five weeks long.
  • Conducted anywhere in the world, at home or at school, with Internet- and phone-based assistance.
  • Proven to be 80-85% effective.

Improved working memory can lead to better academic performance.

Most people with attention deficits also have working memory deficits. That means they don't have the same working memory capacity as their peers. Cogmed Working Memory Training program is proven to train and improve a person's working memory. When people improve working memory capacity, they improve attention and academic performance.

Clinically proven results

Cogmed Working Memory Training program is scientifically validated by clinical studies published in respected professional journals. There is ongoing research at Harvard (Children's Hospital Boston), Stanford, Notre Dame, and New York University. References and abstracts are available.

Scientifically Proven Benefits

  • Improved ability to sustain attention
  • Improved working memory
  • Better academic performance
  • Better complex reasoning skills
  • Improved impulse control

Eight out of 10 people show measurable improvement.

Program results are lasting. One year after completing the program, participants maintain their progress or even make further improvement. However, in selected cases, we offer a booster program 8-12 months after training ends to reinforce progress.
