We offer programs based on recent research which shows that with training, the brain can improve its learning capacity. Because cognitive decline affects performance of daily tasks including productivity at home, at school and at work, researchers are attempting to preserve or enhance cognitive function using enrichment approaches that intensify the learning experience. They are supported in this endeavor by the abundant scientific evidence on the potential for neural and cognitive brain plasticity. One such form of enrichment is cognitive training, or as it is sometimes called brain training. Brain training can be implemented along with our academic and learning interventions for maximum effect.
Cogmed Working Memory Training
Cogmed* is an innovative, computerized intervention program developed to improve working memory. Working memory is the ability to hold information in your mind in order to manipulate or expand upon it. It is essential for problem solving, concentration, and impulse control. Improved working memory means improved attention, focus and better ability to use complex reasoning skills. Over a five-week period, Cogmed Working Memory Training aims to substantially increase working memory capacity. The effectiveness of Cogmed Working Memory Training is supported through findings from clinical studies. Results of many of these studies have been published in leading peer-reviewed scientific journals. Children or adults with attention deficits or learning disorders, or those seeking to enhance their performance (students, athletes, professionals), may benefit from training their working memory.

MC² - Cognitive Intervention
Developed by neuropsychologist Dr. Paul Beljan, MC² combines a series of progressive motor tasks with cognitive exercises that stimulate brain development to enhance learning.
MC² was developed by neuropsychologist Dr. Paul Beljans and Deborah Kratovil, Director of Learning Pathways. It is a set of progressive motor exercises that challenge coordination and stimulate development of motor pathways. We develop a personalized plan of specific exercises to develop new neuronal pathways leading to improved executive function, concentration, focus and learning.
