Memory Problems in Children

E-mail Print PDF

Scientists are still learning about the brain and how memory works, but there are some pretty substantial insights that are essential for teachers to know.  As teachers, we may not necessarily see our task as getting our students to memorize information; however, the truth is that there is a fine line between learning and memorizing.  To our brains, the difference may seem minimal.

Does your child have a hard time remembering directions or math facts? Does he often forget what he wants to say? If so, he might have working memory issues. [link to Does Your Child Have Working Memory Issues?

One of the most exciting areas is brain-based memory research we now have is neuroimaging and brain-mapping studies to view the working brain as it learns. These memory tips are derived from my background as a neurologist. I review the neuroimaging research. I then use my experience as a classroom teacher to make connections between the research and strategies that are NEURO-LOGICAL.


Parents of yesteryears, did not have the internet and modern tools, and so might have neglected their children's problems.

I realized quite late, that children often become targets of bullies in the  schools and never express it to their parents, lest they make inquiries and the children will become targets of the same bullies, trying to take revenge.

But God above sees us all through life.   We often forget to take action at the right time, due to inexperience, and so miss an opportunity  to see what He has equipped each child with.  He may have talents, which the parents ignore, thinking they will not bring in income, and believe that they should study the standard subjects, and become doctors and engineers, but this may not be in tune with the child's nature.

Always, consult a good doctor, before administering any drug which has been recommended by a friend, and also a good child psychologist can help, but make sure the psychologist is not a theory junkie, but speaks from experience.
