Cogmed RM is for children age 7 and up – it requires participation for approximately 30-45 minutes every weekday for five weeks, and there are now variations to that protocol. The software guides the trainee through multiple rotating exercises each day. These exercises are designed to train working memory.
The complexity level of each exercise is automatically adjusted, click by click, to stretch the trainee’s capacity to the maximum. To help parents motivate their children and provide them with feedback, the program includes support from a Cogmed Coach at a Cogmed Qualified Practice.
Included in the program is an optional racing game, that functions as an immediate reward after each day of training. Aside from a home computer with an internet connection, speakers, and a mouse, no additional accessories are required.
