Cognitive Skills

The Cornerstones of Learning...

Cognitive skills are the processes the brain uses to think, learn and remember the vast amount of information it takes in every day. There are four main categories of cognitive skills:

  • Memory

  • Attention 

  • Processing and

  • Sequencing

One or more weak cognitive skills will most likely result in a child experiencing:

  • Frustration

  • Poor academic performance

  • An aversion to school and or reading

The programs used by Reading & Learning PATHWAYS were developed by leading neuroscientists to strengthen core cognitive skills.  

At PATHWAYS, students build strong cognitive skills using scientifically proven interactive software. Building strong cognitive skills is not only the best way to help a struggling student, but is becoming increasingly popular as a way to prevent the natural decline of cognitive skills associated with aging. The programs we use at PATHWAYS develop the cognitive skills essential for academic success, restore confidence, are fun, fast and last a life-time. We offer one-on-one and group programs at our learning center as well as at-home options. 


How well a child does at school is largely dependent upon how strong their cognitive skills are. Students with the highest marks simply have the most highly developed cognitive skills.  Not everyone has the ability to be a top student, but now there is a way to make sure every child reaches their academic potential.  Schools do not teach or develop the core cognitive skills essential for academic success - we do!
