We begin by understanding the individual’s unique cognitive profile and listening to your goals. Programs are then designed to meet these needs (learn more)

Our Results

Our clients are unique. Our approach reflects that. We believe each person we serve is a case study rather than a self-serving statistic (learn more)

Cognitive Enhancement for Students

A student’s learning success is greatly dependent on the strength of their cognitive skills. When a cognitive area essential to learning is weak, it affects the student’s emotions as well as their behaviors, both of which seek to compensate or circumvent the area that affects their learning. COGx individualized cognitive enhancement programs for students specialize in identifying and narrowing the gaps or weaknesses in cognitive abilities that prevent students from learning effectively. Our methods are science and evidence-based. Our programs are customized, targeted and delivered in-person on-site. As we strengthen a cognitive ability, COGx also develops the student’s understanding of their learning process. This develops self-aware and autonomous learners that take ownership of and actively monitor their learning process.

* Following Multi-Step Directions

The COGx Approach

  • Teach: science-based techniques

    Students learn evidence-based techniques essential for effective learning.  While not every skill relies on multiple techniques, there can be multiple techniques for a single skill and knowing when to apply each is essential to effective learning. 

  • Train: develop skill and ability

    Training involves drill and practice of cognitive exercises that adapt and evolve as skills improve, which is essential to improving one’s underlying skills. Improved ability is a prerequisite to better learning but insufficient in isolation.

  • Transfer: generalization to real-life

    The transfer component of the programs ensures the generalization of cognitive gains to real-life in a way that is individualized and meaningful to the trainee. It is important that coaching only occurs after underlying cognitive skills have been improved

Building a Pyramid of Knowledge
Requires a Pyramid of Strong Cognitive Skills

The COGx methodology starts by identifying any weakness that prevents the student from processing information effectively. As these core cognitive skills and processes are strengthened, students learn to manage information. This includes managing the processes that enable self-directed learning, namely: self-monitoring, self-regulation, time management, initiation and
procrastination and other behaviors shared by successful learners. As students learn to monitor their learning process, they become increasingly more aware and capable of independently acquiring and applying information in their academic and real-life context. The goal is to develop students with strong 21st century skills, including: learning, analyzing, collaborating, and communicating
