Can’t Remember What Has Been Seen; Can’t Remember What Has Been Heard

Without help, memory challenges can make living and learning very difficult and frustrating. They can erode self-confidence. Memory challenges can prevent learning easily and are often a major factor involved in difficulties in learning mathematics, reading, language, and following instructions. Memory challenges can be due to and complicated by a combination of: medical conditions; learning/developmental challenges; genetic factors; discomfort from unhealed physical trauma (especially to the head, neck, spine, and pelvis); abuses of all kinds; repressed emotions; chaotic family patterns; environmental pollutants; nutritional imbalances; prolonged illness; medications; a lack of instruction and practice with memory strategies.

Can’t Remember Details, Names Of Things; Has Small Vocabulary; Can’t Remember What Has Been Seen; Can’t Remember What Has Been Heard: Often given the label “short term memory problem.” Or “working memory problem.” This can make learning difficult - especially in reading, writing and arithmetic. Children & youth begin to doubt their own intelligence and begin to become tense when they have to learn something. This doubt can reduce self-esteem which can further slow learning.
