Cogmed Working Memory Training is an evidenced-based intervention for improved attention.
Published research shows that people with working memory deficits (common in ADD/ADHD) who undergo Cogmed Working Memory Training improve their ability to concentrate and control their impulsive behaviour.
Research demonstrates that eight out of ten children will show a benefit from Cogmed Working Memory Training in the order of a 25% improvement in Working Memory capacity. Those with a deficit will tend to improve to a greater degree, and this will generally lead to the normalisation of Working Memory.
Hurlstone Park Psychology has successfully offered Cogmed Working Memory training to children and adults since the beginning of 2010.
