Help for Emotionally and Academically Challenged

Incredible Student Changes
I can’t believe the difference in my student! He has made a 360 degree change since finishing the Cogmed Training. I am surprised and amazed!”
Debbie Courtney, First Grade Teacher
Crossroads Christian School, CA
“My son studied long hours on his algebra and seemed to understand the homework, but would fail the tests. His instructor let me know that my son was most likely anxious. I found Skills for Success Learning and was introduced to Cogmed. Not only has his anxiety decreased, all of his grades are A’s and B’s. I am so thankful…my son’s life has been changed!
Erika, mom of freshman student
Reading for Pleasure!
“Before the Cogmed training, my daughter never finished a book. Today, she just finished the first book in ‘Hunger Games’ and she has started the next one. Her attention has improved so much! Thank you!”
Heather, mom of a sixth grade student
Improved Grades and Esteem!
After my daughter finished the Cogmed, she came home one day from school and exclaimed, “Mom! Now I know how it feels to be a smart kid. I got an ‘A’ on my science test…that has never happened before!” My heart melted! Thank you for helping my daughter!

Help for Speech and Language Delay!
“My son has a speech and language delay, for which he has been receiving services from our district. Unfortunately, the district was unable to adequately address his deficiencies in language comprehension in speech and reading. After Cogmed, my son’s growth has been immense! This program is uniquely designed for the needs of each student.”
Jen, mom of 5 year old son
New Confidence and Reading Scores!
“My son completed the Cogmed training to address his unique learning challenges. The online sessions provided motivation, encouragement and rewards which created a stimulating environment that has boosted my son’s confidence and working memory skills. Now his fourth grade scores demonstrated the effectiveness of this program. I would wholeheartedly recommend Skills for Success Learning to any family with a child with learning challenges.”
Kim, mom of a fourth grader
“My son has blossomed tremendously since working with Skills for Success Learning! He was reading at the first grade level when we first started the online Cogmed, now he is reading and comprehending at grade level (4th). His ability to comprehend has greatly improved. My son now has a hunger to learn and is more focused and confident than ever.”
Chanel, mom of a fourth grader
“Before leaving for work each day, I used to make multiple trips back into the house to get things I had forgotten. Since Cogmed, I am so much more organized! I rarely forget things in the house anymore!

Help for Parkinson’s
Although it is hard to know whether it is the Parkinson’s or getting older that has made understanding conversations a challenge, but I can say the Cogmed training has helped me to not be so stressed. I understand conversations better and my anxiety has lessened.”

Better Life Skills!
My son is starting his fourth week at his new school. I know he was proud of himself because Monday morning he was the only kid in his class to remember to turn in his homework. I was proud of him for making phone calls to get the information to complete it. Cogmed has really helped his memory and he seems much more organized and mature. I am grateful!”
Marta, mom of 18 year old
“His behavior seems to have improved…less angry outburst!”
Melody, mom of a 16 year old
Recommendation for Others with Dyslexia
