COGENT, PREP, MATH — by JP DAS

 

MATH, PREP, and COGENT were created by J.P. Das — the world-renowned Professor (Emeritus) of Educational Psychology at the University of Alberta — based on his pioneering PASS theory of intelligence for which he was inducted into the Order of Canada.

Professor Das is an internationally recognised expert in the field of Educational Psychology, Intelligence, and Childhood Development. In 1999, he was inducted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada for his scholarly contributions to the study of intelligence and in 2004 was awarded an Honorary Doctorate degree (Honoris Causa) by the University of Vigo in Spain. In 2015 Professor Das was inducted into the Order of Canada, the highest honor that Canada can confer on its citizens.

Prep

 

PREP (PASS Reading Enhancement Programme) was developed by Dr. J. P. Das and his colleagues at the University of Alberta. The program is based on the PASS Theory of Intelligence (Planning, Attention, and Simultaneous and Successive Processing).

The PASS Reading Enhancement Programme (PREP) is based on well-accepted theories of child development and cognitive psychology. It aims at improving the information processing strategies namely, simultaneous and successive processing that underlie reading, while at the same time avoiding the direct teaching of word reading skills. Attention and planning are also aspects of each task. Specifically, attention is required and used in performing each task, and planning is augmented by encouraging the children to engage in discussions, both during and following their performance.

 

Age Group:  It is suitable for all age groups and for people who want to improve their reading and writing abilities.

 

Benefits : The Benefits of PREP are as follows:

 

  1. COGENT is scientifically proven to improve student performance in a number of standardized tests
  2. Short, interactive sessions that can be tailored to the needs of even special children including ADHD, those at-risk for learning and reading, and those in the autism spectrum disorder group.

 

Duration : This program is carried over a period of 36 sessions (3 months) of one hour each.

Math

 

By the time children are in secondary school, some of them have completely lost interest in Math. Two conditions affect their inability to learn: failure of instruction in school and children’s specific cognitive deficiencies.

 

This is where our Program MATH comes in! It is an interactive program that makes students want to learn Math. It seeks to strengthen children’s foundations of mathematical concepts.

 

Age Group:   For children in pre-kindergarten to early Primary school.

 

Benefits:

 

  1. Can be personally customized for students with Math learning difficulties.
  2. Only scientifically evidenced program to build Math skills

 

 

Duration : This program is designed as 36 one-hour sessions over a period of 3 months.

Cogent

 

Cognitive Enhancement Training (COGENT) is a Child Education Program designed for the enhancement of cognition, phonological awareness, and language, especially linked to literacy and school learning.

 

COGENT is an interactive program which develops thinking and problem-solving abilities in young children in a fun manner. It uses various shapes, pictures and toys to associate words with literacy, comprehension, and cognitive ability.

 

Age Group:   4-7 years

 

Benefits:

  1. COGENT is scientifically proven to improve student performance in a number of standardized tests
  2. Short, interactive sessions that can be tailored to the needs of even special children including ADHD, those at-risk for learning and reading, and those in the autism spectrum disorder group.
