We designed this packet as a life skills activity workbook that may improve verbal working memory skills. This packet aims to challenge your client’s ability to remember, recall, and relocate words. Individuals in the food service industry often use these skills.
The first exercise will challenge your verbal memory as your patient combines fragments to make logical words. This progresses from easy two-fragment words to three-part fragmented words. In the next exercise, you must produce words with only a set letter or letter combo. After your verbal recall is warmed up, the second to last section will challenge your ability to place words within a grid. This will require you to use both verbal memory and spatial memory. Finally, the last exercise combines these skills into a real-world experience on printed paper. Working in a restaurant requires both verbal and spatial memory skills. These adapted Restaurant exercises will help you practice all the skills used in this packet as you recall names, orders, and positions.
This packet is great for individuals with learning disabilities, students eight years or older, or individuals recovering from a stroke. Try it as a bridging activity as well.
Included inside: 20 worksheets and bridging questions.
