At San Diego BrainWorks we offer Cognitive Remediation for children and adults.
Cognitive remediation is frequently recommended for children and adults with learning disabilities, ADHD, head injury, age-associated cognitive decline, substance abuse, and brain injury. This program consists of structured exercises and protocols. Additionally, tutoring for the SAT, GRE, and similar exams fits into this area, with the goal of increasing the cognitive abilities of speed, accuracy, decision making, and depth of understanding, such that an individuals cognitve abilities are improved in all areas of life, not just on exams or test-taking situations.
We teach our clients the basic principles of cognitive remediation. After this foundation is learned these tehniques and strategies are applied to real life and more generalizable situations. The treatment is individualized and customized to the client’s needs which are determined by findings from the neuropsychological evaluation and the client’s specific concerns. Oftentimes, homework can be given for some exercises so that the cleints can practice in between sessions. Cognitive remediation can vary from 1-2x per week and conducted either individually or in a small group format. Insurance ordinarily does not reimburse these sessions although they can be tax deductible as an educational expense.
We offer tutoring sessions that are held by qualified professionals. Tutoring is offered for multiple subjects and we conduct executive funtioning coaching in our sessions when necessary. We also offer more specific tutoring for ACT, GRE, and SAT tests. Ordinarily, tutoring sessions are twice per week.
