We’re a self-management and therapy tool to help you manage your ADHD, plan your appointments and manage your treatments. Changing habits is hard, our mobile-therapy feature helps you keep those winning habits and be a champion in planning your everyday tasks.
COG will ask you a few questions about you, your medical history and experience with ADHD symptoms. After the initial assessment, COG sets you a series of tasks to prepare for your appointments and educates you about your condition, with tips and easy tricks to improve your daily organisation.
ADHD is not a fault of character. It is not a diagnosis that is synonymous to laziness, a lack of motivation, or a lack of intellectual skills. What it is instead, is a neurobiological disorder which causes a lack neurotransmitters (dopamine and noradrenaline) in the prefrontal lobes. The prefrontal lobes are the part of your brain that houses the executive functions. Executive functions help you manage your behaviour and impulses. Undiagnosed ADHD for adults is correlated with Impulsivity, depression, unstable employment, relationship breakdown, early and unplanned pregnancy, poor education grades and poor mental health.
We start discussing coping skills, for example using a calendar and to-do list. Ideally we focus on what has the biggest result first to help users stay motivated and build confidence in themselves and the therapy
We help users understand and manage their own attention-span, resulting in less energy going into struggling with tasks, and a kinder, more helpful strategy to deal with tasks that are hard.
We start looking at the way the user looks at a problem, and start identifying dysfunctional automatic thought patterns.We give users tools to help them to replace these thoughts by functional thoughts that will help them resolve the problem.
We help users consolidate their new skills, paying attention to what they feel insecure about.
Our mission is to help doctors and clinics save time and make sure patients are prepared. We see that ADHD patients often come empty-handed, without examples of their experience (particularly childhood examples) and this often takes up clinic time causing delays and increasing costs. We think a lack of preparation also causes lateness or absenteeism resulting in cancellations or rescheduling appointments.
