Studies consistently sow that most people with attention deficit have a working memory deficit. That holds true for attention problems due to ADHD, traumatic brain injury, normal aging, or general deficits from working memory overload; it is also true for milder concentration problems. Research also shows that deficits in working memory are related to poor academic or professional performance. Conversely, strong working memory capacity is closely correlated with fluid intelligence.
Research and clinical data show improved grades following Cogmed training. Parents and teachers also report improved social skills, taking initiative, remembering instructions, and completing assignments more independently. The objective is better academic results particularly in reading comprehension and math.
By training your working memory you will be better able to stay focused, ignore distractions, plan next steps remember instructions and start and finish tasks. The objective is better professional performance and attentional stamina.
Your training will be supported by Dr. Gretchen Pound, a Cogmed Coach, who will track your results, and offer you support and motivation. Call now to get started 858-663-7285
