If a teenager has a bad memory, it is necessary to exclude the neurological cause of this deficiency.
To do this, you need to visit a doctor, otherwise any measures can only bring harm.
If there are no medical reasons for this, then it will be necessary to make a lot of efforts for the development of memory.
One of the best ways is memorizingRecite poems and prose. Start with small volumes of verses or fragments, gradually increasing the size of the text and complicating it. Prose is harder to teach, so it is worth to go to when the teen has already mastered the poems. It is necessary to check - how long in memory remains learned. Does he remember in two days? And a week from now? And a month from now?
Two more ways to develop memory - the traditionalSchool narration and retelling. Let the teenager close to the text retell you a read article, or a chapter from the book. Or write a statement, trying to use as much as possible of lexicon from the text and observing its structure. If you do this regularly, then not only memory, but also speech will improve.
In addition to these traditional, there are special exercises for the development of memory, both visual and auditory. For example, say 10 any words that are not logically related to each other and ask Adolescent Repeat everything that he remembered.
For training auditory mechanical memorySay 10 ten-digit numbers quickly. The teenager should repeat them. In this, as in the previous exercise, the norm is 6 reproduced words or numbers.
