Memory deficiencies and disorders lead to many learning disabilities for people. School age children are affected the most since most of what they will need to know for future success in their life is taught at school. Furthermore, school age children also depend on their memory to socialize and develop interpersonal skills and behaviors that will encourage success in other areas of their life.


Typical problems manifested by a memory disorder include lack of organization, lack of memory of daily information like date and time, inability to complete sentences or paragraphs when writing, inability to follow along and complete math problems, lack of personal memory and memorization of events and activities of friends.
