Cogmed Working Memory Training

Cogmed Working Memory Training is an online program designed to improve attention, behaviour and the capacity to learn. Cogmed is targeted towards working memory capacity to eventually improve the cognitive functions that are contributing factors to problems with learning and attention.

What it is, why it’s important and how it can be improved.

  • It is our working short-term memory
  • It is our ability to simultaneously store and manipulate information for brief periods of time in our minds
  • It enables us to remember what to focus on or what to do next
  • A mental workspace

Working Memory and Learning

For successful learning, children need to be able to keep information in mind, while using it to carry out a task. They do this by using their working memory.

Children who have poor working memory skills for their age are at risk of developing learning difficulties in reading and maths

  • Over 85% children with poor working memory have learning difficulties in either reading or maths
  • 70% have both learning difficulties in both

Groups that have working memory impairments:

  • ADHD
  • dyslexia
  • dyscalculia
  • SLI
  • reading difficulties
  • Down and Williams syndrome
  • following brain injury
  • following a stroke

What is Cogmed Working Memory Training?

Cogmed Working Memory Training is an online-based intervention designed to improve working memory in people with attention or working memory issues. Published, peer-reviewed and controlled clinical studies have consistently demonstrated that, upon completion of Cogmed Working Memory Training, 80% of participants have significantly improved their ability to concentrate and use complex reasoning skills over the long term

  • It is a computerised program
    • There are three versions to chose from aimed at either:
      • pre-schoolers
      • young children/adolescents
      • adults
  • Training lasts for between 20-25 training sessions
  • Each training session lasts for between 30-45 minutes

The program is adaptive, whereas a trainee gets to improve their cognitive level as the difficulty level of the training tasks increases. The increasing levels of difficulty greatly help the trainees in working with their maximum ability level throughout training.

However, this is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Cogmed is a training that allows the improvement of working memory letting users focus and resist and handle distractions better. This will help users academically, socially, and professionally. When you invest in a Cogmed training, a Cogmed coach will support users throughout the training. To help users get the most out of the program.
