Assessment of Working Memory

Working memory training is for anyone who wants to strengthen their working memory capacity. The first step in establishing an individual’s eligibility for Cogmed Working Memory Training is usually with an assessment of their existing working memory capacity, attention and behaviour.

In order to determine an individual's working memory strengths, weaknesses or deficits, a qualified professional coach can use standardised neuropsychological assessments, behavioural ratings scales (based on observations from the user and from people close to the user) and performance records from school, work and everyday living. For more information about assessments of working memory, please see the Pearson Clinical website or ask to speak to a clinical consultant

Use the working memory checklist to learn about working memory and what behaviours are typical of working memory difficulties.
