Evidence-Based Interventions for Students with Memory Impairments
Presented By Dr. Milton J. Dehn
Many students with learning problems and disabilities have impairments in short-term, working, or long-term memory. Evidence-based instruction, training, and interventions designed to enhance memory functions can improve academic learning and performance. This workshop will begin with an overview of the neuropsychological foundations of memory. Classroom instructional practices that effectively improve memory will be discussed, followed by group and individual interventions, included internet-based training for working memory. The workshop will conclude with an overview of individualized memory interventions intended for students with severe memory impairments.
