Are Problems With Memory Impacting Your Child?

Memory in childhood is the ability to remember important information that the child needs for their learning and day-to-day life. Memory serves us in many ways, from keeping up academically, getting along in social situations, and remembering to brush our teeth before school. Everyone forgets things occasionally.

Memory challenges will most likely be evident in school because remembering information is so important for learning and school success. Issues may also be apparent in social interactions and daily chore routines. Your child may have school struggles with memory or forget the morning routine daily, despite constant reminders. Understanding why there are challenges can help determine the best course of treatment or support for memory challenges. When memory challenges cause significant distress, it is important to intervene. View this page for general information about memory in childhood.
