Health Care Professionals

health-care-professionalV2Cogmed is an evidence-based tool for you to help your patients in a meaningful way.

If you are a health care professional (such as a psychologist or a medical doctor) in private practice or working with an institution, focused on using evidence-based interventions to help your patients with attention deficits, you will find Cogmed relevant for your practice.

Cogmed provides a new, proven and effective approach to addressing the serious challenges of attention problems in ADHD, Traumatic Brain Injury, stroke and other conditions. There is a strong research case and logic behind the intervention. The implementation is highly structured, ensuring excellent clinical results. Working with Cogmed adds an evidence-based and non-pharmacological tool to your client work.

Cogmed Working Memory Training is a training program for people with poor working memory and attention deficits. The program is based on published studies and developed by a team of neuroscientists. The peer-reviewed studies show that Cogmed training reduces symptoms of inattention in children and adults, by addressing weaknesses in working memory capacity.

The training program is available through our authorized Cogmed Practices and Cogmed coaches, all trained and qualified by Pearson.

If you are a psychologist or medical doctor experienced in working with children, adolescents or adults with attention deficits, and are dedicated to using evidence-based treatments in your practice, contact us to offer Cogmed to your patients.

“I have been trained on Cogmed Working memory as a Cogmed Coach. Cogmed certainly helps in improving working memory, focus on task, sustained concentration and sitting tolerance. I found it really useful in improving listening skills and retention, along with visual tracking ability and spatial organization. I recommend Cogmed training for students, professionals and any one would like to hone their skills for effective functioning.”
