Come hear Carol Brown present on Cognitive Development. Thursday, November 12th at 7pm
Working memory is a stronger predictor of personal and academic success than simple IQ. Focusing on the role of working memory, Carol Brown will summarize the Equipping Minds Cognitive Development Curriculum, based on Reuven Feurerstein’s theory of cognitive modifiability, that uses neurodevelopmental therapy, multi-sensory therapy, and cognitive exercises to enhance learning in children and adults of all abilities. The program has been used successfully with people from gifted to those with Down Syndrome, Autism, ADHD, and dyslexia, as well as psychiatric patients, and can aid in psychotherapy.
