Through a home-based computer program, working memory capacity is increased, resulting in stronger attention, logic and reasoning skills, improved concentration, and reduced impulsive behavior. Cogmed programming takes approximately 30-40 minutes per day, 5 days a week, for 5 weeks. The game-like interface is as fun as it is challenging! Eight out of ten children who complete programming show measurable improvement in attention and complex reasoning skills. Parents and teachers report improvements in communication, taking initiative, and independent task completion as well.
Working memory refers to the ability we have to hold and manipulate information in the mind over short periods of time. It works like a mental notepad to help us store important information to carry out tasks. Children and adults with working memory deficits are easily distracted, struggle to remember instructions, and have difficulty starting, prioritizing and finishing tasks. Studies have shown that they also have difficulty in school and at work, particularly with reading comprehension and math, due to their inability to hold in mind sufficient information to allow them to complete the task at hand.
Research shows that children with AD/HD have an average working memory level roughly equal to that of a non-AD/HD seven year old. Strengthening working memory can help to reduce the social, academic and other challenges that children with AD/HD face every day.
Cogmed RM for school-aged children, Cogmed QM for adults, and Cogmed JM for preschoolers.
Better academic performance, particularly in math and reading. Improved concentration and attention, and reduced impulsive behavior and distractibility. Home-based computer program automatically adjusts to the user's skill level, increasing in difficulty as abilities increase.System Requirements
We are Partners in Conservation with the World Wildlife Fund. In addition to making a monthly donation with our profits from our very popular gumball machine, Listening Ears will make a donation to the World Wildlife Fund on behalf of every child that enrolls in our programs. Each child gets to select and endangered animal of his or her choice to "adopt" and learn about. Each participating child will receive a stuffed animal, colored photo and information card about that animal. Help Out
