Memory and Direction Following

Memory and direction following are key skills that guide our language development. Speech therapists are trained to address the role that language plays in memory and direction following.

Problems with memory and direction following may arise as a symptom of an Auditory Processing Disorder. Memory and direction following challenges are typically symptoms of a larger language-based disorder. At Granite Bay Speech, we define the symptoms and develop an organized treatment plan.

Here at Granite Bay Speech, we help individuals improve their memory skills and decrease their frustration. Our techniques include non-linguistic programming, cognitive behavioral therapy, and rehabilitation. 

Auditory challenges are assessed and successfully treated by licensed speech-language pathologists. Granite Bay Speech often works your medical doctor, psychologist, visual therapist or occupational therapist to achieve your goals.

Nancy Barcal is a very compassionate and personable care provider who tries to understand the specific individual needs of each of her patients. I have noticed a significant degree of improvement in several of my problem areas following almost every session, starting with the first one. If you're looking for a clear treatment plan with measurable results, I would recommend giving Granite Bay Speech a try.

I highly recommend Nancy at Granite Bay Speech. I attend monthly meetings held by The National Stuttering Association where I first met, and often sees Nancy. She is very helpful and uplifting and i often leave sessions feeling better than I did when I arrived.
