COGx 1:1 programs are customized to strengthen core cognitive skills required for learning.

Individualized Learning Enhancement Programs

Our clinical programs train partner organizations in our proprietary methodology that targets cognition, develops metacognitive awareness, and teaches students to learn effectively. Trained educators are then able to meet with students in a one-on-one or small group setting and provide academic support and skill development.

Measurement of Impact

COGx is delighted to partner with the Bjork Learning & Forgetting Lab at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA.)  COGx partnership will enable schools to measure the impact of adopting our Science of Learning programs on teaching and learning.

UCLA Bjork Learning & Forgetting Lab

The Bjork Learning & Forgetting Lab was founded in 1979 by world renowned experts on learning and memory, Drs. Robert and Elizabeth Bjork. The primary goal of the Bjork Lab is to apply cognitive psychology to enhance educational practice. Bjork's research has identified fundamental learning principles that help educators, parents, and students understand and leverage the science of learning in the classroom to improve student achievement. Drs. Robert & Elizabeth Bjork have received many honors and awards in their distinguished careers. In 2016, they both received the James McKeen Cattell Fellow Award which is a lifetime achievement award for their contributions toward improving learning to ultimately address societal issues. Recently, they received the 2020 APS Mentor Award for their work as co-directors of the Bjork Learning and Forgetting Lab as well as their work mentoring others throughout the years. Of the more than 80 honors, graduate, and postdoctoral students and scholars the Bjorks have co-mentored at UCLA, a staggering 70% have had successful academic careers in areas related to learning.
