Cogmed Memory Training

Cogmed JM is for pre-school children – its training design is identical to our original program for children, Cogmed RM, but features a new interface specially designed for younger children, ages 4-6.

Cogmed JM requires participation for 10-15 minutes every weekday for five weeks. The software guides the child through several rotating exercises each day. The exercises become more difficult in small steps, as the child’s ability to handle them improves.

To help parents motivate their children and provide them with feedback, the program includes support from a Cogmed Coach at a Cogmed Qualified Practice. Aside from a home computer with an internet connection, speakers, and a mouse, no additional accessories are required.

How It Works

The Cogmed program delivers substantial and lasting benefits. There is a straightforward and research-based explanation for the mechanisms delivering the effects.

Very focused design – working memory improvement

The program challenges the user’s working memory capacity. The computerized, cognitive exercises are designed by neuroscientists to target this key cognitive function that has been proven to be fundamental to executive function and attention. The details of the exercise design allow the program to be very focused and yet provide slight variations.

Finely tuned difficulty level – you are always challenged

The difficulty level of the training is adjusted in real time by the software based on the user’s performance. The highly fine-tuned calibration means that every Cogmed user will always be training at the very edge of his or her cognitive capacity. This is true for many people, from a young child with severely impaired capacity, to an adult in good cognitive shape. Whoever you are, Cogmed training will challenge your brain – and improve it.

Highly personal support ensures you will complete the training

The program is carefully designed, rigorous, and focused on a key cognitive function. But to have strong real-life effects, it also has to be used in the right way. This is why Cogmed training is always supported by a Cogmed-trained coach. The coach makes sure the user has the right profile for the training, and that the timing is right. The coach is responsible for providing the motivation, support, and feedback necessary to get the most out of the training. Thanks to the Cogmed coaches, 90% of Cogmed users complete their training.

When you improve your working memory capacity, the change generalizes to your behaviour. In other words, the change is translated to other things than just working memory. The research breakthrough is that by training a tightly defined cognitive function you create a cascading effect of improvements. You will be better able to pay attention, resist distractions, self-manage, and learn.
