Cogmed is the only digital therapeutics that has been shown to improve attention in everyday life.

Cogmed is a six-week digital therapeutics training program designed to improve the brain systems responsible for attention and working memory. You and your child will be supported through the adaptive program with weekly one:one coaching sessions. Both virtual and in-person coaching sessions are available depending on your geographic location. As your coach, I will design individualized strategies to help your child meet the challenges of completing the program.

I am a qualified Cogmed Working Memory Training coach.

Although my practice is primarily focused on helping children who think and learn differently, Cogmed is suitable for anyone from the ages of four and up. I can help neurodiverse and neurotypical children and adults who are motivated to improve their working memory.

Stories of Gratitude

  • “Jen helped my daughter when she got frustrated with the program. She gave us strategies to help her push through challenges. This has directly impacted our daughter’s work on reading and writing assignments at school. She has become more resilient and has the stamina to get through tasks that are cognitively demanding.”

    Parent of a 9 year-old client

  • “Cogmed and Coach Jen helped me discover that I am very good at recognizing patterns that others don’t see. This has made me a better mathematician.”

    11 year-old client

  • “This program helped me learn new things about my brain. As it turns out, my brain is pretty awesome.”

    7 year-old client

  • “My son is curious, creative, and loves to learn. He also struggles to complete tasks that aren't aligned with his interests or gets frustrated when something feels too hard. Cogmed provided him with the opportunity to practice sticking with something tricky in a low stakes environment. Over time, he began to understand that the program adapted to his abilities, so it was meant to be hard and he was meant to have some errors. That understanding freed him up to engage with the process without anxiety. As a result, he started approaching Cogmed with a positive attitude and a willingness to be persistent. We have seen the transfer to other tasks as well - he is much more willing to complete schoolwork that isn't his favorite, such as writing, and is proud of his accomplishments.”

    Parent of an 8 year-old client

  • “Cogmed helped me become a better basketball player. I feel like I can make more accurate decisions about whether I should pass, shoot, or dribble. My brain feels different -- like it is working faster.”

    11 year-old client

  • “Our son’s reading fluency scores took off after completing the program. It changed his outlook on the type of student and thinker he is.”

    Parent of a 10 year-old client

What is Working Memory?

Working Memory (WM) is the cognitive ability to remember information and to incorporate this information into your thinking. It is also a key component to successful learning. WM helps us remember what to focus on to solve problems. Children with learning differences such as dyslexia and ADHD often have working memory deficits that can impede progress toward reaching academic and social-emotional growth. WM is used for numerous tasks tied to academic success and emotional well-being:

Remembering instructions

Mental math problems and reading comprehension

Multi-step problem solving and sequencing tasks

Sustaining focus and structuring daily life

Given the neuroplasticity of the brain, working memory can be improved. Cogmed Working Memory Training is a research-based tool that can help children achieve this growth.

Hello! I’m Jen.

Founder of Lotus Cognitive Solutions Group and Cogmed Coach.

I am a licensed teacher and hold a BA in Psychology and an MA in Special Education with an emphasis in Gifted and Talented Education. My passion and expertise is in designing academic and social-emotional supports for children who think and learn differently.

I have held a variety of roles in the education field such as a Classroom Teacher, Gifted and Talented Specialist, and Academic Language Therapist providing specialized instruction to dyslexic learners. Coaching children with ADHD, dyslexia, and other learning differences that are marked by working memory deficits are at the center of my mission.

Here at Lotus our intention is never to “fix” a child, but to provide practical solutions to help him or her achieve meaningful goals. Our coaching sessions are firmly grounded in a child’s strengths and work to cultivate motivation. The brain is remarkably ripe with possibilities and given the right tools and encouragement, every child is poised for growth. I would love the opportunity to help your child actualize this.
