Cogmed Working Memory Training for Children with Attention Deficits
Family Compass is proud to introduce a new computer-based training program to help children with attention deficits called Cogmed Working Memory Training.
Working memory is the ability to keep and manipulate information in the mind, which is essential for maintaining attention and staying on task.
Cogmed Working Memory Training, developed at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm Sweden, is a non-medical intervention that has passed rigorous clinical studies that showed significant improvement in working memory, concentration, sustained attention, impulse control and complex reasoning skills in children with attention deficits.
Family Compass is one of the first practices in the United States offering this innovative new treatment program.
To learn more about this exciting new intervention and to see if the program is a good fit to your child's needs please contact the office manager of Family Compass at 703-471-5517# or via e-mail. The office manager will arrange a time for you to talk to one of our psychologists.
Following this free of charge phone consultation, an initial screening evaluation will be conducted to see if your child might benefit from the program. If so, families will be assigned a coach to guide and provide program support. Following an initial setup session in our office, the computer-based training is done at home for 30 to 45 minutes, 5 times a week over a 5-week period.
