Long-Term Memory Problems
in Children and Adolescents: 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
- Explain how to selectively test memory functioning
with cognitive, memory, and neuropsychological scales.
- Describe evidence-based strategies and interventions
for long-term memory deficiencies.
