New professional development opportunities: Using cognitive training to help students with ADHD succeed

from C8 Sciences

Cognitive development programs have been recognized as an exemplary resource for providing organizational help for students with ADHD and other cognitive deficits. These professional development programs are designed to help educators understand how cognitive skills impact student learning, how to implement an effective cognitive training program, how to interpret and use the data to differentiate instruction and facilitate the success of students with ADHD or other cognitive deficits.

Many of the problems that teachers see in the classroom such as lack of attention, focus, working memory or behavior problems can be attributed to a specific lack in one of the eight core cognitive capacities. However, understanding those core capacities, identifying them and then using that information to differentiate instruction can seem pretty overwhelming. These professional development programs were designed to make that process simple for all educators. They will give educators a better understanding of the eight core cognitive capacities how they affect student learning and how they can implement cognitive training that will give them all the tools they need to have an impact on student success.

The cognitive training program introduced in these programs was designed and developed by a leading neuroscientist in an NIH funded research program at Yale Medical School and recently won the NIH Director's Award for "high impact, high innovation, and paradigm changing medical research."
