Cognitive Skills Training

Child succeeding in school thanks to Learning Foundations
Cognitive skills are the core skills your brain uses to think, read, learn, remember, reason, and pay attention. Working together, these skills take incoming information and move it into the bank of knowledge you use every day at school, at work, and in life.
Each of your cognitive skills plays an important part in processing new information. If even one of these skills is weak, grasping, retaining, or processing that information is impacted no matter what kind of information is coming your way. In fact, most learning struggles are caused by one or more weak cognitive skills.

Here’s a brief description of each of your cognitive skills, as well as struggles
you may be experiencing if that skill is weak.
