FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH? WHO NEEDS IT! Cognitive Remediation Reversing the Signs of Aging
Children of New Jersey, Inc. starts new services in cognitive remediation, a specialized approach that has proven affective in increasing memory, reducing the affects of age on memory, and helping maintain or improve mental acuity.
“Memory loss affects us all, but affordable treatments do exist,” says Keishawn Ceaser, Director of Children of New Jersey, Inc., referring to the process of cognitive remediation. “Cognitive remediation, also known as ‘brain training,’ ‘cognitive training,’ and ‘cognitive rehabilitation’
“Studies conducted since the turn of the century have provided support that computer-based cognitive remediation offers improvement in verbal and visual, secondary and long-term memory, information processing speed, learning, and interference tendency. Elderly participants had an easier time remembering word pairs and recalling lists of words immediately after a prolonged period of time (greater than 30 minutes). Study participants also recalled with ease various visual materials presented. Additionally, the research showed ‘perceptual psychomotor speed and information processing speed also showed improvement.”
“CNJ has brought in several psychologists to supervise this work with individuals of all ages to maximize the total benefits of cognitive remediation,”
Because memory loss can be attributed to many factors, it is suggested that individuals interested in this program undergo a simple evaluation before starting. This evaluation is available through Children of New Jersey and is conducted by a licensed clinical psychologist.
