Dr. Cindy Ward Sandler

“Since obtaining my Ph.D. in psychology in 1979, I have pursued my lifelong desire to help others reach their potential. I have sought effective interventions that improve learning by addressing cognition throughout my entire career.

In 2013 I began referring students to COGx and realized I had found a uniquely effective methodology. As a result, I decided to close a successful private practice in psycho-educational testing to help democratize access to COGx.”

COGexcel is based in the Washington, DC region and serves clients throughout DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Our programs take place at various locations, with options for home-based training as well as onsite at your child’s school.

COGx services at your organization

COGx programs are completely decentralized and can be incorporated into your organization or licensed to qualified organizations in the greater-DC area.

In order to improve learning, we must understand what is going on “beneath the surface” for each learner.

Learning is the product of many things working together, and there are principles underlying why learning is or is not happening effectively.

Too often, symptoms are treated without understanding what is at the root. COGexcel professionals aim to understand the learner and enhance learning through proven methods.
