Accelerating Young Minds benefits diverse learners in Special Education
While the basic skills developed by the AYM curriculum are very important for younger students in general education, it is even more so for special education students of all ages. Not only is the content important, the way in which the information is delivered, in rich multimedia format, is highly effective for all students particularly those in special education. Computer-based cognitive training has been scientifically shown to help develop attention, memory, language and executive function. Gains made using cognitive training programs have also been shown to be widespread and long-lasting. Our programs were originally developed to address the common problems associated with autism, ADHD, and dyslexia but it is now apparent that they have much broader applications.
