RTI Evidence-Based Interventions for Students with Memory Impairments

Description:  Many students with learning problems and disabilities have impairments in short-term, working, or long-term memory. Evidence-based instruction 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, and the relationships between memory systems and academic skills and knowledge. Classroom instructional practices that effectively improve memory at Tier I will be discussed, followed by group and individual mnemonic interventions appropriate for Tier II interventions. The workshop will conclude with intensive individualized memory interventions intended for students who require Tier III services and special education.
