Professional Help

Because memory is a very wide-ranging skill and information is remembered in different ways, assessing exactly where one person’s weakness lies can take time. For example, it may be that visual information (pictures, drawings, photos) is easier to register and remember than verbal information (spoken words, read words). If so, then the therapy strategies can concentrate on pictures, either on paper or in your mind. It may be that a memory aid will be helpful to you, and the health professional can help with identifying which aid is appropriate and how much help (if any) you will need to use it.
