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.
