Summer Academic Support with CogMed

How can Cogmed Working Memory Training over the summer help my child do better next semester?

Cogmed Working Memory Training® at The Hallowell Center Boston MetroWest is a web-based and coach-supported intervention for attention problems caused by poor working memory. Working Memory is the ability to hold on to information while we use it in our thinking. It is the basis for mental math, reading comprehension, managing big projects and problem solving – any task that requires mental multi-tasking. We combine cognitive neuroscience with innovative computer game design and close professional support to deliver substantial and lasting benefits to our users. The vast majority of users improve in the ABC’s of Cogmed: Attention, Behavior and Capacity to learn.

Cogmed is the most researched working memory program in the world today.

With 40+ published studies to date and over 80 ongoing studies taking place, research finds that:

Working memory is a key success factor in the ability to pay attention and learn.

Working memory can be improved by training and using the right tool and protocol: Cogmed is that tool.

Training-related effects have been shown as changed brain activity, improved outcomes on neuropsychological testing, and improved behavior.
