Individualized Program Results
COGx programs are designed to develop independent (self-directed) learners. Our clinical approach ensures each student masters the scientific principles that underpin learning success (at an age appropriate level), while targeting and strengthening the core cognitive skills responsible for learning, and we ensure these gains transfer to real-life, which no other cognitive program claims or achieves.

“agree their student’s have a better understanding of how they learn and ability to apply to schoolwork”
“agree their student is more independent, confident and successful learning”
“agree COGx was a good investment and that they’d recommend COGx to others”
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

“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
Group-Based Memory Program
Memory is foundational to learning. In our group-based memory program, students master evidence-based methods of improving memory with their peers to enhance learning outcomes.
percent of parents reported:
“My son/daughter benefited greatly from the program”
“My son/daughter has a better understanding of how they learn”
“My son/daughter’s memory improved significantly”
“The memory program was a great investment”
“I would recommend the program to others”
“If this memory program was integrated into the school system, and teachers and students knew the techniques and strategies we learned, everyone would be a lot smarter!”Kevin, WWHS Student of Memory Program
Professional Development for Educators
Learning outcomes improve when teachers apply scientific principles to how they teach. In our PD for Educators, teachers learn how to apply science-based strategies to their teaching.
COGx is the finest example I’ve encountered of cutting edge research applied to educational methodology. All educators should be required to learn effective strategies to develop the foundational cognitive skills students need to engage in the critical thinking and creative problem solving that 21st century education demands.

“I am working with a student right now whose family is most concerned with him being ready for college and increasing his independence. So much of this training was relevant to helping meet his needs. I feel much more confident in helping this student. Some of the practical tools such as the self-assessments are particularly helpful. Thank you!”
COGx Partner School
Montgomery College, based in the State of Maryland (United States), is an open access public education institution with nearly 50,000 students enrolled. Every year the college selects an innovative initiative to pursue, which can be implemented with an industry partner.
COGx was chosen as the partner to integrate services to improve teaching and learning outcomes for the students. Through the partnership, we are assessing students to provide programs that target cognition to improve learning.

Course: Science of Successful Learning
Research reveals most students use ineffective strategies to learn. Our course teaches students the science of learning in an engaging format that focuses on mastering and applying evidence-based learning tools.
“I think the topics of this course should be given as teacher training for all teachers. This was the first time I had had any type of training on how to work with students who may have different roadblocks to attention, working memory, and processing speed. This training helped me to understand my students much better”Teacher of COGx Partner School
