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.

Join Hamlin Robinson School for a special screening and discussion of the acclaimed film, The Big Picture. Open to the whole community!
THE BIG PICTURE: RETHINKING DYSLEXIA, focuses on a dyslexic high school student who pursues admission to a leading college– a challenge for a boy who didn’t learn to read until 4th grade. Additional accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts, and iconic leaders at the top of their fields, help us to understand that dyslexia, a persistent problem with learning to read, can be as great a gift as it sometimes is an obstacle.

Screening will be followed by a discussion. Clock hours will be available for teachers.
