Short-Term Memory Difficulties in Children
Suitable for: 7+
Short-term memory problems can lead to low self-confidence, a negative attitude towards school, a low score on assessments of language comprehension or an erratic pattern of errors. Written by a practising speech & language therapist, this book provides a structured yet flexible approach to addressing the needs of such children. This practical resource provides a complete programme of ideas for developing a child's short-term memory skills. The programme can be administered in its entirety, or as an accompaniment to clinician's existing packages of care, and is best suited to individual intervention. The book provides a structured programme for individual therapy, although activities may be adapted for group therapy. Containing photocopiable activity sheets and supporting material, ideal for use with 7 to 11 year-olds, the book also includes child-friendly recording forms and progress charts. Contains 144 A4 spiral-bound pages.
