Are you or someone in your family experiencing any of these issues?
These are typical symptoms of attention deficit, which is closely related to lower-than-average working memory capacity.
Cogmed is specifically designed to address the underlying cause, through dedicated training of attention and working memory.
Numerous scientific studies have shown that Cogmed has a powerful effect on the ability to focus attention for longer periods of time.
Improved attention is helpful to everyone, but especially important for people who start off with a deficit in this area.
With the help of a Cogmed Coach you can tailor your practice to suit you and your family. The possibilities range from a low 20 minutes per day to intensive 50-minute sessions..
The training is carried out on computer, smartphone or a tablet, and consists of a series of short exercises that forces the person training to push the limits of their working memory. Doing the training can be fun, and at times frustratingly challenging.
The exercises are carefully designed, to challenge the attention and working memory of the person training. As the trainee gets better at an exercise, the level of difficulty increases. The program is adaptive to ensure the training is kept at the optimal level of effort.
We know that Cogmed has great potential to help with attention deficit and other cognitive impairments. For the effects to materialize it is necessary for the trainees to really stick to the training program, and to push themselves through each exercise.
To help the trainee commit to the program and stick with the full course of the training, they are helped by a professional coach. This person is trained in the Cogmed method, and specialized in the particular types of issues that the trainee is experiencing.
The coach sets them up with the right expectations and creates a training schedule. As the trainee goes through the program, the coach keeps in touch regularly, offering the consistent support needed to succeed.
Through the course of the program, the coach helps the trainee identify how the newly acquired skills appear, and how they can keep working to integrate them in daily life.
The direct effect of the training is increased working memory capacity and improved ability to pay attention and stay focused. These benefits typically appear immediately by the end of the program.
Additionally, many Cogmed users experience how their improved attention leads to positive follow-on effects, such as better performance in school and improved self-confidence.
Cogmed has been used to deliver more than 200,000 trainings, and studied by researchers in more than 120 experiments published in scientific journals.
Based on this experience, it is safe to say that anyone completing the training program with dedicated effort will see a significant effect on their working memory, attention, and cognitive performance.
