Abstract

The effects of Spaced Retrieval (SR) training delivered over the phone on the everyday memory problems of subjects with chronic TBI were investigated in an experimental treatment-control group study. Experimental subjects received SR training on 3 goals; their paired control subject received the same total amount of therapy discussing the use a variety of compensatory memory strategies without SR techniques. Results indicate that SR participants achieved 100% goal mastery, 97% goal maintenance and 63% generalization of mastered goals at 1-month follow-up compared to control subjects who reported 36% use of strategies and 26% generalization of strategies at 1-month.
