Memory Booster has six levels, increasing in difficulty. Each level teaches a different memory strategy. As the task gets more difficult, the program encourages the child to vary their strategies and to find which ones work best for them.
Can be used at school and home
Memory Booster does not require teacher supervision to be effective. The program can be used to equal effect at home as well as at school. The program automatically adapts to each child's rate of learning. Children can be left to work with the program at their own pace, freeing up teacher time in the school and making it the ideal choice by parents for home use.
Memory Booster gradually stretches the child's skills through structured practice as well as equipping them with a range of effective memory strategies that they can apply to any learning task. Children can play on Memory Booster as much as they like and as often as they like.
A graphical report of the child's performance is available for every session and shows how the child is progressing over time. Children can also print out their own certificates of achievement.
Proven effectiveness in research trials
Memory Booster is especially useful for children with dyslexia or who have identified memory difficulties, but it is also been found to be beneficial for all children to help them to improve their memory skills. Research studies have shown that Memory Booster is just as effective as many hours of teacher instruction, and improves memory skills independently of gender, intelligence or ability.
