So what is this breakthrough tool? One such tool is called Cogmed and it was brought to the United States by neuroscientists from Sweden in 2006. It is administered through a network of trained and certified physicians and Psychologists called Cogmed Training Coaches. It is evidenced-based, peer reviewed, and research tested and has helped thousands of people increase their working memory – and therefore their lives. To view Cogmed’s research, click here.
As a NYS Licensed Psychologist and a certified Training Coach for Cogmed, I use the tool for students with working memory deficits (10-15% of all students), which includes children with ADHD and other disabilities. Parents and teachers have observed substantial benefits in such children who, in many cases, are able to turn their lives around.
If you are wondering if your child may have a working memory deficit, below is a chart that shows some common indicators.
