Timers can be useful in providing cues regarding when it is time to take medications, check blood sugar/blood pressure, etc. Timers can range in complexity and expense (e.g., watches with timers, hand held planners or PDAs). Use of mnemonic (memory enhancing) strategies can also be helpful. What is the best way to train external aids? Once the external aid(s) has been selected, the user is provided with the opportunity to explore the aid followed by systematic training in how to check and enter : Initially users with more severe impairments should only be taught how to check information; someone else should enter the information for them. For example, a person with Broca's aphasia may say, "Walk dog," meaning, "I will take the dog for a walk," or "book book two table," for "There are two books on the table." People with Broca's aphasia typically understand the speech of others fairly well. Because of this, they are often aware of their difficulties and can become easily frustrated. Wernicke's aphasia, also known as receptive aphasia, sensory aphasia or posterior aphasia, is a type of aphasia in which individuals have difficulty understanding written and spoken language. Patients with Wernicke's aphasia demonstrate fluent speech, which is characterized by typical speech rate, intact syntactic abilities and effortless speech output.
This article reviews existing research on the interactions between verbal short-term memory and language processing impairments in aphasia. Theoretical models of short-term memory are reviewed, starting with a model assuming a separation between short-term memory and language, and progressing to models that view verbal short-term memory as a cognitive requirement of language processing. Deborah M. Riby, Melanie A. Porter, in Advances in Child Development and Behavior, 6 Verbal Memory. While phonological short-term memory (or immediate memory span for auditory–verbal information) is generally reported to be at or above the level predicted by mental age (Porter & Coltheart, ), verbal working memory (being able to hold and manipulate auditory–verbal information in.

The errorless learning approach in cognitive rehabilitation originated in the amnesia literature as an application of established principles of learning and memory. The basic notion was that responses experienced during training become primed in memory by means of implicit learning mechanisms that continue to operate in amnesia. Lauren Marks tackles this issue in her book, A Stitch of Time (our current online book club selection). Her brain gives birth to a duck that she trots out whenever she needs to feel calm. No Words Necessary. The National Aphasia Association is (c)(3). Some of the memory tricks in this book are well-known, but most of them were made up over the years by yours truly. Mnemonics are not meant to teach you the information. Rather, they are meant to jog your memory, which already holds the information somewhere Reviews: 8. Aphasia: Dementia.
