The CogniFit brain training program for adults with dyslexia is a neuroscientific program specifically designed to improve mental sharpness. The training helps boost reading and writing skills, enhances concentration, memory, and learning ability. It is recommended for 13+ people.
The CogniFit program has been developed by a team of international neuroscientists using the latest advances and discoveries in neuroscience. By joining technology and fun brain games, the CogniFit program makes each training session both fun and effective.
CogniFit brain games are designed to strengthen the neural network involved in language processing. The program is an innovative and effective way to stimulate neuroplasticity in dyslexic adults. The system starts with an assessment of your cognitive health and then automatically selects an optimal brain training regimen that matches your unique cognitive needs. Based on your initial assessment results and your ongoing performance, the system automatically and continuously adjusts the tasks and level of difficulty to your specific cognitive needs using adaptive algorithms.
The CogniFit brain training programs for adults and children with dyslexia have been scientifically validated and clinically proven by a wide range of universities, schools and hospitals around the world.
What Assessment for Adults with Dyslexia?
Get your initial evaluation and personalized diagnosis. The system detects the cognitive impairment automatically.
Benefit from an optimal cognitive training for your unique profile. The training stimulates the cognitive skills affected by dyslexia.
Strengthen the specific cognitive domains impaired by dyslexia. Response time, working memory and language processing.
What treatment for adults with dyslexia?
As a person grows up, it becomes increasingly more difficult to diagnose and treat dyslexia. To help with this problem, CogniFit’s neuroscientists have designed and developed a specific program for adults with dyslexia:
A revolutionary scientific tool using simple interactive exercises to track the user’s performance, detect the cognitive skills impaired and stimulate the intrinsic neural network automatically.
CogniFit’s extraordinary technology helps activate the different neuronal connections that form the basis of our cognitive abilities. The system tracks the user’s cognitive performance and identified the cognitive domains that could benefit from some improvement, using advanced adaptive algorithms.
The benefits of the CogniFit brain training programs are designed to remain and transfer to real benefits in real life. Adults with dyslexia will see significant results shortly.

Scientific Validation: Studies Show Effective Treatments for Adults with Dyslexia
The CogniFit personalized brain training program boosts reading skills in college students with dyslexia. When dyslexic college students trained with CogniFit personalized brain training program, their brain activity, working memory and reading performance were shown to increase significantly, and results lasted up to six months after training on dyslexia.

Dyslexia in Adults
It is estimated that 1 in 10 people have dyslexia. Nowadays people are more aware of this disorder and children are better diagnosed during childhood than they used to be. Indeed, many adults with reading and writing difficulties throughout their entire lives still have never heard of dyslexia. Adults with dyslexia unaware of their disease is usually the worst-case scenario. Even if they have normal or above-average intelligence, it is more likely that at some points in their lives they have been considered stupid or bad at school.
Treating dyslexia starts with using educational tools to enhance the ability to read. The earlier dyslexia is recognized and addressed, the better. If left untreated, the disorder may lead to a number of problems, such as low self-esteem, behavior problems, anxiety, aggression, and withdrawal from friends, parents and teachers. The inability to read and understand can prevent children from reaching their potential as they grow up and can have long-term educational, social and economic consequences as they become adults.
Most adults with dyslexia try to hide their disorder because they are ashamed of their mistakes. While these people go to therapists, usually they do not get many results because it is difficult to reach the root of the problem: diagnosing dyslexia in adults.
Dyslexia is not related to intelligence, but to the way the brain processes information. This is the reason oftentimes people with this disorder tend to better sharpen their senses, and develop higher levels of intelligence, strategic vision and creativity.
Symptoms of Dyslexia in Adults
Though early intervention is beneficial for dyslexia treatment, it's never too late to seek help. However, diagnosing dyslexia in adults is more challenging. Doctors investigate the adult’s genealogical history to find evidence of dyslexia running in the family and ask questions about school years too. The symptoms in adults are similar to those in children.
Here is a list of some common dyslexia symptoms in adults:
- Difficulty reading, including reading aloud.
- Trouble telling left from right.
- Difficulty understanding jokes or idioms such as "once in a blue moon" meaning "not very often".
- Trouble with word problems in math.
