ADHD Coaching and Cogmed Working Memory Training

ADHD Coaching and Cogmed Working Memory Training

Cogmed Working Memory Training is an evidenced based training program that helps to improve working memory by training and improving attention skills. Computerized Cogmed training is based on a robust body of independent scientific research and your training will be overseen by Dr. Contardo, a Certified Cogmed Coach and a Board Certified Neuropsychologist. Dr. Contardo specializes in the assessment and diagnosis of ADHD and will personally oversee your training. Cogmed training can be completed in the comfort and convenience of your own home or in our office.

Working memory is the ability to keep and manipulate information “online” for a brief period of time. This ability can be measured for example by testing how many digits a subject can repeat back after hearing them once (verbal working memory) or how many positions a subject can remember after seeing them once (visual working memory). Working memory has been shown to be related to academic performance and success in school and coach supported Cogmed training reinforces the best quality training and lasting results.

The Cogmed program includes:

  • An initial intake interview
  • In-person start up session and coaching
  • Five weeks of training with weekly coach calls or meetings with Dr. Contardo
  • Follow up interview upon completion
  • Access to self-guided training for one year
