Memory and Direction Following

Memory and direction following can be a symptom of Auditory Processing difficulties, or part of a variety of learning disabilities and difficulties. Due to the fact that memory and direction following issues are typically the symptom of a larger issue, we will help you find the cause of the symptoms and the best treatment plan.

Here at Granite Bay Speech, we help families improve their memory skills and decrease their frustration. Our techniques include non-linguistic programming, cognitive behavioral therapy, and rehabilitation. Our therapists can help evaluate the cause of the memory and direction following difficulties.

Many auditory challenges can be assessed and are successfully treated by a speech language pathologist. Care may also be coordinated with your medical doctor, psychologist, a visual therapist or occupational therapist.
