Memory deficits may be the biggest single barrier to independent
living, socialization, and home and family life. This interdisciplinary
approach to building functional memory skills emphasizes the use of
internal and external strategies to improve recall. You'll even have an
appendix with carryover suggestions for family members.


  • A comprehensive review of memory from a transdisciplinary perspective
    addresses everything from medication effects and anatomical correlates
    of memory loss to stimulation therapy and compensatory strategies.

  • You won't find anything like the exercises for attention in other
    clinical manuals. Various exercises of increasing difficulty address
    sustained, selective, alternating, and divided attention.
  • The auditory recall exercises animate clients' interest with sections on sports, history, health, and fiction.
  • Visual recall activities revolve around such functional skills as reading calendars, catalogs, and maps.
  • Sequential recall is targeted in stories and functional memory assignments.
  • These exercises also involve a planning component, such as planning a trip or going shopping.

This book includes many pages that are reproducible for use with clients or patients.
