Abstract

While there is ample research evidence to show that SRT is effective for persons with dementia, questions remain as to the most efficient or effective procedures. This study examined use of Spaced Retrieval Training for persons with dementia using two different training procedures. In one procedure, recall was prompted after equally spaced intervals; in the other, recall was prompted after expanding intervals (e.g., 1 minute - 2 minutes - 4 minutes). Four persons with dementia who reside in a nursing home participated in this study. Results and implcations will be discussed.
