Hours of Program Duration: 100 hours
Processing Speed & Critical Thinking
Goal: Improve attention, critical thinking and the speed at which SY completes his work. His processing speed was in the 22nd percentile and affecting attention and timely completion of school work. Hours of Individualized.
Program Duration: 65 hours
Decision Speed, Memory & Math
Goal: AH works too hard to complete assignments and is a perfectionist. We’d like to see improvements in decision speed, long-term and short term memory and bolster numerical fluency (math).
Program Duration: 100 hours
Reasoning Skills & Math

A solution after years of frustration...“After about 6 years of frustration and pain regarding my child’s schooling, I have finally found a huge link that was missing. Although the various schools provided a few strategies for him to compensate for his cognitive deficits he seemed stuck in the rut of merely learning by rote. There was no spark in him, no confidence, and no real growth in the areas where he was lacking. At times, I would despair, wondering what would happen to him in the future. I know the provisions available through the schools–public, private, special needs, would help him a bit to move through the system in his education, but none of it would result in the real change I have witnessed in my son since he started individualized cognitive training with the COGx methodology.”
-Parent of COGx student, age 9
COGx individualized cognitive enhancement programs are built around the unique learning (cognitive) profile of each person we help. We do so with methods that are science and evidence-based.
COGx encourages independent before and after neuro-psychological testing to validate each program we undertake.
More importantly, COGx professionals design and customize programs around each client’s real-life goals, which we sign and commit to as a prerequisite to enrollment.
No other program or company can or will offer such a promise or commitment to results.
Clinically Validated Gains
I didn’t even need to see the results to know how well Sam did with the training; the results were evident in the grades. Sam especially has made big improvements in math and accuracy.Parent of COGx Student
Why Standardized Programs Fail
Playing a game (or repeating an exercise) doesn’t automatically transfer into a real-life skill. Measuring gains with a battery of tests designed by the company offering the program is self-serving and discrediting.
Few people persist at independently working on a skill that is weak. We are wired to respond positively to what we can do (or learn to do). We avoid or desist tasks we can’t do, particularly when repetition is not the solution.
Standardized programs offer the same recipe to a wide range of needs and abilities. Therefore, investing in irrelevance is almost guaranteed. Also, the likelihood of engaging and motivating the student by developing a path that connects their starting ability to their desired goals is greatly diminished.
“A science-based approach knows its own limitations. While honest approaches avoid over-promising or false claims, some in this industry tout universal effectiveness and rely on emotion to convince their target audience. Universal claims and emotional pitches should be a warning sign, particularly if these programs have a one-size fits all approach as franchisors tend to have.”COGx Director, Javier Arguello
