Cogmed: Will Children with ADHD, learning problems and learning disabilities respond differently to Working Memory Training?
Presenter: Peter C. Entwistle, PhD, Charles Shinaver, PhD
This webinar will shed some light on the effects of Cogmed in the case of comorbidity with ADHD, but moves beyond that to consider children without ADHD those who have other learning concerns. This webinar is intended to further deepen a more nuanced expectation and understanding of the possible effects of Cogmed with a broader range of problems challenging school-aged children. In this webinar the presenting concerns of children will include ADHD, those with learning “disorders” and children with learning “difficulties”. We will consider how the effects of Cogmed might be distinct among these groups. Particular focus will be placed on reviewing the 2016 study by Roording-Ragetlie, et al., titled: “Working Memory Training in children with Neurodevelopmental Disorders”. However, other relevant Cogmed-specific studies will also be considered (Dahlin, 2010 & 2013), Gropper, et al., (2014), as well other salient studies.
