Cogmed offers various programs tailored to children in preschool and school-age, as well as teenagers and adults.


What is Working Memory?

Working memory involves the capability to retain and actively maintain information in your mind. You might encounter challenges with working memory when:​

  •  Repeatedly asking for directions on how to complete a task. 

  •  Difficulty concentrating when there are distractions of background noise.

  •  Having trouble learning and applying new skills.

  •  Making the same mistakes repeatedly

  • Starting one task, but going on to another before completing the first.

It is important to be able to focus on and retain relevant information needed in every day life, let alone when learning or on the job. To do this, we use our working memory. However, working memory has limited capacity and time for which information received can be held. People who have poor working memory often have challenges in the following areas:

  • Focussing your attention

  • Shutting out distractions

  • Following directions

  • Learning new skills

  • Completing complex tasks
