ADD and ADHD Treatment

Cogmed Working Memory Training is a computer-based solution for attention problems caused by poor working memory. Ashburn Psychological Services is certified to administer Cogmed’s innovative training solutions to help you and your family.

Cogmed combines cognitive neuroscience with an innovative computer game design and close professional support to deliver substantial and lasting benefits to its users.

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. The logic is very much like in the case of the fitness machines used for building muscle strength in a gym. Cogmed is highly focused, cognitive weightlifting.

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.

You should not just take our word for this; review the research behind Cogmed and e contact us to scheule a free phone consultation with one of our highly experienced psychologists who use Cogmed to help their clients prepare for success.
