Packet #38

Verbal Working Memory

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.

The digital exercises that inspired this worksheet

Restaurant

Many situations in real-life demand the correct pairing of information to an individual’s identity, like remembering which healthcare provider corresponds to which specialty. Other situations these skills are important are for when someone has guests over and one guest has an allergy or a preference for a food item. Using attention, working memory, and name recognition, your client will learn to create meaningful associations with multiple pieces of information.

Root it Out

In everyday life, we like to share jokes, things we have learned, and things we find amusing. Sometimes, accessing our memory to retrieve information for use on the spot can be very difficult. In this exercise, your client will be presented with the root of a word and they must derive as many words as they can using the root that they are given. While this exercise targets verbal memory and fluency, it can also help with word formation and learning by trial-and-error.

Split Words

While highly verbal, this exercise also challenges working memory and spatial navigation. On a grid, your client must put together word fragments in order to create a logical word that pertains to a particular category. Your clients will practice deriving meaning from details, using context clues, and exploring space to collect relevant information. This exercise carries over to everyday tasks, such as reading an article or searching a web-page for relevant information.

Words, Where are You?

Situations such as casual conversation or instructions from a doctor’s appointment require us to pay attention to the words we see and hear and assign relevant meaning to them. In this exercise, your client must memorize and correctly place the location of several words pictured on a grid. While abstract, this exercise challenges your client to develop strategies to assign meaning to incoming information in order to apply it for use at a later stage.
