The HRS Learning Center is excited to offer this research based training program.
Cogmed Working Memory Training is designed to improve working memory in students who struggle with remembering things such as multi-step directions, information from text they have read, and sequences of patterns and images. The program combines insights from cognitive neuroscience research with an innovative computer game design and close professional support.
The program is facilitated by David Kipnis, Learning Center Director, with oversight from Dr. Wayne Duncan, child clinical psychologist at ABCD, Inc. a Cogmed Qualified Practitioner since 2009. The Cogmed training method consists of 25 computerized training sessions, each 30-45 minutes long. Each session utilizes eight tasks that target auditory and visual-spatial working memory. The training program is designed to improve working memory over a five week period of training.
An information session with David Kipnis and Wayne Duncan will be held on May 9th. They will provide a brief overview of working memory and demonstrate the Cogmed training program. Additional information on Cogmed can be found at www.cogmed.com.
