Spaced-Retrieval: A Therapy Technique For Improving Memory For Task Completion (Addresses Communication and Swallowing)

# e61   Spaced-Retrieval: A Therapy Technique For Improving Memory For Task Completion (Addresses Communication and Swallowing)

by Cameron Camp, Ph.D.

0.3 CEUs

$ 59.00

$ 47.00

This online course introduces SLPs and other healthcare professionals to Spaced Retrieval (SR), a cognitive intervention that has been found to improve retention of information in clients with memory impairments.  The focus will be therapeutic application of SR with persons with dementia, based on studies of persons with Alzheimer's disease, CVA, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's disease and HIV infection.

Therapists sometimes avoid working with clients who have dementia due to the mistaken belief that these persons cannot learn and, therefore, cannot benefit from therapy.  As a result of taking this course it is our hope that participants will increase the number of clients with dementia on their caseload and use SR to benefit these clients, as well as other clients with memory impairments. Specifically, this course:

  • Gives a brief review of dementia.
  • Presents a model of memory systems, emphasizing those memory components that are generally preserved until late in the course of dementia.
  • Describes how SR capitalizes on preserved skills of persons with dementia to help them meet a variety of important rehabilitation goals (e.g., safer swallowing, less repetitive questioning, improved orientation).
  • Describes a fast and efficient screening technique to determine if a client is likely to benefit from SR.
  • Describes specific SR techniques designed to meet therapeutic goals, including examples and case studies.

This course is offered for 0.3 ASHA CEUs – 3 contact hours. 

Note: This eCourse was developed in conjunction with Myers Research Institute (Cleveland, OH) and was federally funded through a grant from the National Institutes of Health.

Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Course Format: PowerPoint (slide show) including interactive case studies.  This course requires that you have Adobe's Flash Player installed. Click here to download the Flash Player.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand how memory is affected in dementia.
  2. Understand how to identify remaining abilities in persons with dementia.
  3. Develop measurable client goals to increase functionality in persons with dementia.
  4. Understand how to execute the SR Screening Measure.
  5. Understand how to conduct an SR session with a client with dementia.
  6. Understand how to transition SR to the client’s environment.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post-test in order to 
receive a certificate of completion.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses.
