Abstract

Spaced Retrieval techniques were used over the telephone to train persons with traumatic brain injuries to use compensatory strategies for everyday memory problems. Seven subjects with borderline normal to mild global severity ratings were trained to use memory aids for prospective and episodic memory tasks. Results indicate that goal mastery was achieved in an average of five 30- min training sessions resulting in 94% goal maintenance at 1-month post-training. Evidence of generalization to functionally related tasks was evident for all subjects. The application of errorless learning theory to functional memory interventions for persons with TBI and dementia will be compared.
