Working Memory and Cogmed
What is Working Memory, why is it so important and how do we use it on a daily basis? How can Cogmed be used to improve Working Memory and what research is there? All these questions are addressed in our handy infographic.
I have been a Cogmed coach for around 2 years. Of the children and adults who have completed the programme, I have heard only positive results - some have better attention/concentration even half way through the programme. Positive comments have been received from school as well as home and it works but I am still uncertain whether the effects of it are long lasting. I don't think enough research has been done to re-test students/adults over months/years - look
forward to more of that being proven.
