When you decide that you or your child should do Cogmed training, you turn to a Cogmed Qualified Practice. The coach at the practice will guide you and support you through all the steps of the training which include: assessments and pre-training control tests, the online program for five weeks of intensive training, access to our online monitoring system, post training assessments and tests, and 100 extra, shorter training sessions to be done at your discretion.
The best way to understand and review the cost of investing in Cogmed training is to compare it to spending the money on a specialized intensive summer camp, a psychological assessment, or neuropsychological evaluation. You could also compare Cogmed training to hiring a personal trainer to achieve physical fitness – except you are training your brain for cognitive fitness.
The Cogmed Difference
This is fundamental cognitive training, not skills learning:
Cogmed does not teach you new skills. We help you create a platform for learning skills. The concept of neuroplasticity, the idea that the brain can reorganize itself and change, is what allows Cogmed to effectively change the way the brain functions to perform at its maximum capacity. There are many training programs for various skills such as reading, math, or time management. Cogmed acts on a different, more fundamental level. Once your working memory has improved, you will find that acquiring new skills is suddenly much more doable for you.
Focused solution, substantial benefits: Cogmed is not a one-size-fits-all answer. Cogmed is a solution that improves working memory allowing you to focus and resist distractions better. This will help you academically, socially, and professionally.
Solid research: Cogmed is based on peer-reviewed, published research by leading scientists. No other attention training products can match the research case behind Cogmed.
