Dyslexia is a reading learning disorder related to neuro-developmental problems. This means that the first symptoms of dyslexia are often easily recognized during childhood (frequent reading mistakes, difficulties in reading comprehension, etc.). If not treated properly, dyslexia-related difficulties persist into adulthood, becoming a major obstacle for adults with dyslexia. Fortunately, the symptoms of dyslexia in adults can be reduced if treated properly. CogniFit is the leading company in online cognitive training for the symptoms of dyslexia in adults.

Dyslexia in adults is often related to problems in several cognitive areas, such as language, memory, executive functions, and reaction time. CogniFit focuses on these cognitive problems and offers cognitive stimulation activities that can help reduce the cognitive symptoms of dyslexia in adults. Training is available from a computer, tablet or smartphone.

CogniFit's dyslexia in adults training aims to reduce the cognitive symptoms of dyslexia that result from cognitive impairment and promote reading. Reducing the symptoms of dyslexia can help adults improve their daily performance at work, at school, or in their personal lives.

Who is it for?

Who is it for?

CogniFit's cognitive training tool is easy to use and accessible for any user. For this reason, it is available in different platforms to suit every type of user:

Adults who would like to reduce their dyslexia symptoms

Stimulate my cognitive skills related to dyslexia

When you have dyslexia in adults, it is best to start treatment during childhood as soon as it is detected. However, dyslexia is often not detected during early childhood which can lead to adults with serious reading difficulties. CogniFit considers both the possibility that the adult has received treatment during childhood or that the adult has never received any treatment. CogniFit training for dyslexia in adults adapts to the user's current condition and suggests activities to train their cognitive skills related to dyslexia.
Family members or caregivers

Strengthening my relative's cognitive abilities related to dyslexia

The family platform will allow you to recommend dyslexia training for your adult family members and manage it for them. This is useful if our family member has difficulty dealing with new technology since they can just use it for training with your supervision.
Health Professionals

To help the cognitive skills of my adult patients with dyslexia.

As dyslexia is a common learning disorder often found in therapy, CogniFit training for adults with dyslexia can be a great support tool in therapy. This platform will allow health professionals to train their patients and track their results both in therapy and at home (cognitive remote stimulation).
Schools and teaching staff

Explore and improve the students' cognitive performance. Educational innovation and brain-based learning

Reading is essential for virtually any academic activity, and dyslexia in adults can make it extremely difficult to study and acquire skills. If there are students with dyslexia in the classroom, CogniFit's school platform can be used to help them strengthen their cognitive abilities altered by dyslexia and promote their academic performance.
Researchers and scientists

Study the effects of cognitive training in adults with dyslexia

CogniFit offers an easy and intuitive way to collect, manage and compare cognitive data from adults with dyslexia who participate in scientific research. This platform also offers a "control group" for research purposes. Unlike other groups, control group participants will perform different tasks at the lowest level of difficulty, which allows control of certain variables and more consistent research.

Trained cognitive skills

Trained cognitive skills

CogniFit training for dyslexia in adults is dedicated to stimulating the most impaired cognitive abilities in dyslexia:

Cognitive Domains Trained
Cognitive Skills

Memory

The ability to retain or use new information and recover memories of the past. Memory allows us to store internal representations of knowledge in our brain and retain events from the past to use them in the future. Learning is a key process in memory because it makes it possible to incorporate new information or modify existing information in the previous mental schemas. After this coding and storage, the information, the memory, or the learning should be prepared to be recovered in the future. The hippocampus is a key brain structure in the mnesic process, and works actively during sleep to consolidate the information acquired during the day.

Visual Short Term Memory

Visual Short Term Memory

The ability to retain a small amount of visual information (letters, shapes, colors, etc.) for a short period of time. Adults with dyslexia often have difficulty retaining visual information, which is most obvious when it comes to remembering letters or words.

Working Memory

Working Memory

A set of processes that allow us to store and temporarily manipulate information to perform complex cognitive tasks such as language comprehension, reading, mathematical skills, learning or reasoning. Studies indicate that working memory and some of its sub-components (such as phonological loop) are impaired in people with dyslexia, with poorer performance on tasks that depend on this cognitive function.

Perception

Ability to interpret the stimuli of the environment. Perception is responsible for identifying and making sense of the information received from our sensory organs based on our prior knowledge of the world. Perception is a process that can be given by different senses (like sight, hearing, touch, etc.), and that our brain is responsible for integrating, giving it a sense of whole. The brain areas associated with perception are responsible for uniting the information perceived by the different sensory organs so that we can interact effectively with external stimuli, regardless of the stimulated sensory organ. In order for the perceptual process to be carried out properly, a process of assimilation and understanding of the information received will be necessary.

Reasoning

Ability to efficiently use (order, relate, etc.) the information acquired through the different senses. Through executive functions, we can access and use the information acquired in order to achieve complex goals. This set of superior processes makes it possible for us to relate, classify, order and plan our ideas or actions according to the needs that are imposed in the present or future. They allow us to be flexible and adapt to the environment. The executive functions make it possible to be effective in our day to day lives, solve problems and achieve our objectives even if there are modifications in the original plan.

Processing Speed

The time it takes a person to do a mental task. It has to do with the speed at which a person captures and reacts to the information they receive, either visually (letters and numbers) or auditory (language). Adults with dyslexia usually require more time to process the read information.

What will I get from CogniFit brain training for adults with dyslexia?

CogniFit brain training for adults with dyslexia aims to help them improve the state of their cognitive abilities and thus reduce their reading-related symptoms. It is intended:

  • To help modify the functioning and structure of the brain in order to favor the day-to-day life of adults with dyslexia. To this end, CogniFit training uses a system that personalizes the training to the user's current condition.
  • Reduce the different symptoms related to the various cognitive abilities affected by dyslexia in adults.
  • Improve reading and activities related to the written language in adults with dyslexia, promoting academic and work performance.
  • Encourage a healthy emotional and social condition in adults with dyslexia. Reducing symptoms can help improve self-esteem and confidence in certain social situations.

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

CogniFit has scientifically proven that its cognitive training can help improve some cognitive abilities related to dyslexia in adults. CogniFit training helps to activate and strengthen the brain networks involved in the main cognitive abilities most affected by dyslexia.

Brain plasticity is a mechanism by which our brain changes some parameters of its neural connections to adapt to the stimulation it receives. For this reason, carrying out cognitive training that adapts to our needs with the appropriate frequency can stimulate certain neural activation patterns altered in dyslexia. Thus, we can help our brain perform certain daily activities with greater ease.

CogniFit brain training activities will focus on stimulating the different areas of our brain involved in reading, which are often altered in adults with dyslexia, thereby helping reduce symptoms.

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

Since dyslexia is a reading acquisition disorder, it is best to begin treatment as soon as possible. However, it is common to not detect this disorder early and not receive the appropriate treatment. Adults with dyslexia may have a wide range of difficulties in their daily lives, as reading is a common activity in academic, professional, or even leisure settings. These difficulties often result in lower quality of life, poorer academic or job performance, and social problems for dyslexia in adults.

On the other hand, adequate and systematic treatment can help improve altered cognitive abilities in dyslexia and reduce its symptoms. CogniFit training for dyslexia in adults has scientifically proven to help adults with dyslexia improve their cognitive abilities. CogniFit training is multi-dimensional and systematic, promoting brain plasticity especially in areas involved in reading.
