We understand that children with learning differences, such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia, require teaching styles and methodologies that are not found in a typical classroom.
The Roig Academy is among a specialized independent network of schools throughout the world that are designed for children with learning differences.
Short Term, Long Term & Working Memory
Educators at The Roig Academy have a thorough understanding of the learning disabilities that each of its students may be diagnosed with.
What is Memory?
Three types of memory are important to learning. Working memory, short-term memory and long-term memory are used in the processing of both verbal and non-verbal information. If there are deficits in any or all of these types of memory, the ability to store and retrieve information required to carry out tasks can be impaired.
The Types of Memory
Working Memory refers to the ability to hold onto pieces of information until the pieces blend into a full thought or concept. For example, reading each world until the end of a sentence or paragraph and then understanding the full content.
Short-Term Memory is the active process of storing and retaining information for a limited period of time. The information is temporarily available but not yet stored for long-term retention.
Long-Term Memory refers to information that has been stored and that is available over a long period of time. Individuals might have difficulty with auditory memory or visual memory.
