Hi- Thank you for the additional information.

I am sorry to hear that you have slow processing memory speed---this is something that can be improved upon---for some easier than others- but if you do not have any profound cognitive defects or injuries these exercises should help you. If Luminosity did not do the trick- not to worry- there are other techniques that can help.

Like any exercise, you have to practice:
