When visual and auditory input is processed in our brains, we examine details and derive important information that we later store as knowledge. Sometimes, this information is stored temporarily for use during a task (working memory) or practiced and rehearsed to remain ingrained in our minds to be accessed when needed (long-term memory). Many people have trouble remembering things, which is why they work with a psychologist, occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist, or other clinical providers to work on developing strategies that help them chunk, store, and access information when needed.
In this worksheet, we provide you with 4 exercises that target visual, verbal, or both types of memory. We have also included useful bridging questions to help you lead discussions with your clients to help them connect their cognitive skill practice to their everyday lives. You can use these exercises with your clients one-on-one or during group therapy sessions. If you are providing telepractice therapy, you can share this worksheet with your clients and have them perform them either on their own or during a video-conferencing session with you.
Here is our 28th packet of free worksheets. Designed for healthcare professionals, these worksheets can be used with patients to practice and work on cognitive skills impacted by traumatic brain injuries.
