Spaced retrieval is a scientifically proven method of improving memory of names, facts, and routines for all people, including those with memory impairments (Alzheimer's disease and other neurological conditions). This expanded interval timer will help clinicians, family members, and students to keep track of the intervals and performance as they practice up to 3 memory targets.
Visit our website at http://tactustherapy.com/apps/srt/ to link to several articles about this technique and it's proven efficacy with dementia, aphasia, normal learners, and more.
Recalling an answer over expanding intervals of time (1 minute, 2 minutes, 4 minutes, 8 minutes...) helps to cement the information in memory, even for those with impaired memory. Combining the recall with a physical act (e.g. turning over a card) involves procedural memory, a memory system often preserved when explicit memory is impaired.
Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Neuropsychologists, Teachers, Social Workers, and families can all use this simple technique & app to help clients and loved ones remember important information (names, safety procedures, orientation information, etc).
Please note: This app is a timer and tracks data. Targets should be individually selected for the memory-impaired person to be relevant and meaningful. This app is not intended to be used alone by the memory-impaired person, but as a therapy tool by a clinician or family member trained in this technique.
What's New in Version 1.02
I found this app to be extremely useful during therapy sessions. When juggling multiple activities it can be difficult to remember to cue a patient for each specific interval. This app makes spaced retrieval an easy way to incorporate prospective and short term memory tasks into treatment
Love this app!
I recently purchased this app for my iPad and I love it! It's so easy to use and very efficient. It has made my life much easier. I highly recommend it if you're interested in using SRT!
