Cog-Med Treatment for my ADHD 9 year old?

Hi, everyone:

My 9 year old son has pretty strong memory issues.  It’s really hard for him to remember multiplication facts, etc.

His psychiatrist recommended Cog-Med therapy, and my Mom has offered to pay half of it (it’s expensive!) They say it has an 80% success rate.

I’m at my wit’s end and worried about him - do you have any experience with Cog-Med? I’d love to hear it.

Thanks!

I don’t have personal experience with Cogmed, but I found some resources on it.

There have been prior discussions about it as well:
