BEFAST (Building Executive Function for Academic Success Training) is a community-University partnership that provides cognitive training experiences for students during the school day. Many different cognitive abilities (e.g., working memory) are necessary to achieve academic success (e.g., consistent grades and being engaged with school). However, for many students there may be under development in one or more of these cognitive abilities; BEFAST utilizes computer-based cognitive training activities to build cognitive skills that support school performance. We work with students (elementary to high school age) in small group settings at school sites in San Bernardino and Orange Counties. BEFAST is an excellent way for you to gain research and clinically-related experiences beyond your coursework.
