Targeted Cognitive Intervention
Targeted Cognitive Intervention (TCI) is an individualized, computer-based training program developed at Carroll School and designed to strengthen particular cognitive skills and their underlying pathways in the brain.
At Carroll, we believe our job is to create better learners. That's why we developed TCI. Targeted Cognitive Intervention (TCI) gets to the underlying causes of a child’s specific learning challenges and helps strengthen brain circuits that promote effective and efficient learning. We liken it to building superhighways in the brain.

A Novel Approach to Improving Reading Fluency
John D.E. Gabrieli, research partner at Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology and Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences Massachusetts Institute of Technology, discusses how Targeted Cognitive Intervention is improving reading fluency in struggling readers.
Here are some additional resources to discover more about TCI -
TCI includes cognitive interventions powered by CogniFit brain games scientifically designed to train 22 cognitive skills, including a set of skills designed to assess and improve their reading comprehension.
