Long-Term Memory Problems in Children and Adolescents
Presented by Dr. Milton J. Dehn
Assessment, Intervention, and Effective Instruction
The workshop begins by reviewing brain systems that process and store different types of information, followed by identifying youth populations who are at risk for memory impairments. A selective-testing approach to assessment is emphasized, along with recommendations for using various cognitive, neuropsychological, and memory scales. The remainder of the workshop focuses on strategies, interventions, and instructional practices that can increase memory performance among children and adolescents with memory problems.
Expected Learning Outcomes
Participants will be able to:
- Identify brain structures that are involved in the encoding, consolidation, storage, and retrieval of information.
- Identify youth populations who are at risk for memory dysfunctions.
- Explain how to selectively test memory functioning with cognitive, memory, and neuropsychological scales.
- Describe evidence-based strategies and interventions for long-term memory deficiencies.
