Name: External Memory Aids Plan

SKU: EMAGOTST

Solution Plan:  ​​​​ 

Remembering to do things relies most heavily on external memory aids. Reminder notes, calendars, diaries, watch-alarms, oven-timers and leaving objects in conspicuous places. All these external aids are acting as cues to memory.

Ideas for External Devices:

  • Notebooks​​ 

  • Other written planning systems

  • Electronic planners​​ 

  • Smart cell phones

  • Computerized systems

  • Auditory or visual systems

  • Taking notes

  • Making shopping lists

  • Entering appointments in a diary or on a calendar

  • Writing a memo to yourself

  • Taking photographs

  • Using clocks, oven timers, alarms on watches

  • Putting objects in a conspicuous place

  • Asking​​ someone to help you remember

  • Sticky notes with reminders​​ 

 

Rather than "fixing" cognitive impairments following brain injury, individuals can learn to compensate for these challenges by using a variety of helpful external memory aids​​
