If you or someone you know could benefit from memory intervention then please contact us so we can share more information.
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.
Memory interventions can be selected as a course of action succeeding an initial discussion. Read about the HSR Psychology process below.
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:

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.
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.
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.
Arrange an initial discussion to find out how we can benefit your education setting. The initial discussion lasts 2 hours and is a starting point to identify needs. The cost is £180.
