Memory interventions

Memory interventions aim to support children and young people who have difficulties with recalling information. Memory interventions are useful for individuals with physical conditions including stroke. At HSR Psychology, we provide tailored memory interventions for children, teens and young people.

Who could be suitable for a memory intervention?

Any young person between the ages of 3 and 25 could be suitable for a memory intervention at HSR Psychology.

If you or someone you know could benefit from memory intervention then please contact us so we can share more information.

What are the benefits of a memory intervention?

Memory interventions with HSR Psychology are beneficial for the child or young person in a number of ways, including:

Following a memory intervention we will provide some guidance for supporting the young person. Recommendations are useful for maximising the potential of the individual in other settings e.g. at home, in school.

What happens prior to a memory intervention?

Memory interventions can be selected as a course of action succeeding an initial discussion. Read about the HSR Psychology process below.

Our process

At HSR Psychology we ensure that we meet the needs of children and young people. To achieve this we ensure that any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work, is only carried out following an initial discussion.

An initial discussion allows us to understand the background and your expectations of our involvement. Having an initial discussion ensures any services we provide appropriately identify or address needs.

Our process for any specific assessments, intervention, or direct work is as follows:

Step 1: Contact us

We will usually be contacted by the child or young person, parent or carer, or another professional (eg education or health).

You can contact us or complete a referral

Step 2: Arrange an initial discussion

What happens during a memory intervention?

During a memory intervention, the HSR Psychology specialist will often tailor memory training around the child or young person’s learning style and needs. The individual will usually learn recall techniques such as how to separate information like instructions, in order to remember chunks of information. The child or young person may also learn some planning techniques in order to organise complex tasks so that they are easier to keep track of. Memory interventions can involve different elements based on the individual’s needs. Memory interventions can take place in one of our clinics, at home, or in an education setting.

What happens after a memory intervention?

After a memory intervention the child will be able to utilise techniques independently to improve their memory skills. A follow up session may be suggested, if needed, following the memory intervention. After the intervention, we organise a feedback session to discuss outcomes. Outcomes can also be elaborated on in a written report if needed. You will receive support from us throughout the whole process of an intervention, including, offering you post-intervention support.

Does a memory intervention come with a report?

We always suggest we write a report for you following an intervention. This report will include; what happened and the impact of what happened, along with recommendations for the future. A comprehensive report is available after a memory intervention highlighting which techniques are the most effective for the individual based on their learning style. Reasons for requesting a memory intervention vary. If a report is not needed then we can give you feedback verbally along with a brief written summary. You can read about our reports further here.
