Changes in training index [ Time Frame: Changes in training index is measured during 5 weeks of working memory training ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
The training index is based on the user's best results from selected exercises in the program. The Start Index is calculated with the results from days 2 and 3, and the Max Index is calculated with the results from the two best days during the training period. The Index Improvement is calculated by subtracting the Start Index from the Max Index.

Working Memory Training in Children With Cerebral Palsy, a Pilot Study
Computer Based Working Memory Training in Children With Cerebral Palsy, a Pilot Study

The purpose of this pilot study is to assist the preparation of a larger multi-center study. The main aim is to determine the feasibility of conducting computerized working memory training in a group of children with cerebral palsy.

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Working Memory Training
Behavioral: Cogmed Robomemo working memory training
The Cogmed Robomemo program is designed as a computer game in which an animated robot gives different tasks to be solved by the child. The tasks have various degrees of difficulty adapted continuously throughout the intervention period to the performance of the individual child. The program is standardized in that each child receives the same set of tasks during the training period. The child will perform the training sessions at home using their own computer for about 35-40 minutes each day.
Experimental: Cogmed Robomemo working memory training
Participants will complete 25 sessions (5 weeks) of Cogmed Robomemo (Pearson assessment) working memory training
Intervention: Behavioral: Cogmed Robomemo working memory training
