COGNITIVE TRAINING FOR CHILDREN 

 

Dr Cara Wong, PhD is a Certified TALI train/ReadyAttentionGo! provider - an attention training program developed for children aged 3-10 years by a team of neuroscientists at Monash University. TALI train is a 5-week, home-based program, delivered on an iPad or Android tablet. It is suitable for children with attentional difficulties, including typically developing children and those with developmental conditions such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and non-specific intellectual disabilities. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ReadyAttentionGo! program represents the culmination of over 25 years of research in developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience. It incorporates engaging touchscreen exercises to train children’s core attentional skills. The program has been proven, through scientifically validated clinical trials, to improve attention by strengthening underlying attentional processes. Currently, treatment options for attention difficulties in children are sparse, with the most common being psychostimulant medication. Drug based interventions often focus on improving symptoms rather than treating underlying causes of attention problems. Current non-pharmaceutical interventions often require multiple clinical appointments which are expensive and time consuming. In some cases medication cannot be prescribed due to a child’s age or condition. Early intervention is vital. The ReadyAttentionGo! program was created as an early intervention program to help improve attention in children with attention difficulties and attention disorders like Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). For more details on TALi/ReadyAttentionGo! please see their website.

MEMORY TRAINING FOR ADULTS

MEMORehab is a 6-week web-based group program that is designed to improve everyday memory in adults with mild to moderate memory disorders resulting from an acquired brain injury (it is not appropriate for patients with dementia.) The idea is to teach strategies and lifestyle habits to participants, explain how these work and get them to practice the advice in their home environment. 

The digital platform provides supported, clinician-led group-based sessions, educational videos, homework, notifications and reminders as well as bespoke computer-based exercises to teach and practice memory strategies.  Once the six weeks of group-bases sessions finishes, participants continue to have access to the training materials for an additional 6 weeks.  Find more information on the MEMO website:  https://www.memorehab.com.au/
