The Cognitive Gap

The difference between your child’s current cognitive capacity and his/her learning potential

Your child has cognitive strengths and weaknesses, just like every other child on earth, but no other child is exactly like yours.  Weaker cognitive skills can keep your child from achieving the academic and life success you want for them.  Stronger cognitive skills can help them excel. 

The great news is that — whatever your child’s current cognitive capacity — cognitive skills can be developed.

Schools today are so busy trying to prepare students for the test that they don’t always do a good job of preparing them for life.  As a parent, you want your child to be ready for life itself.  And that requires strong cognitive skills, like attention, working memory, flexible thinking, reasoning and problem-solving, in addition to more foundational cognitive skills.

Here are three simple steps that can help you decide how best you can help your child strengthen his/her cognitive capacity and fill that cognitive gap.

 

Use our free cognitive rating scale.

The BrainWare Cognitive Rating Scales are used to evaluate an individual’s cognitive skills in the areas of Attention, Perceptual Processing, Memory, Executive Functions, and Reasoning.  It can be used as a one-time assessment of cognitive strengths and weaknesses by evaluating observable behaviors that relate to an individual’s level of cognitive development.  It can also be used as a benchmark before and after cognitive training.  There are three different rating scales, for different aged individuals.
