Mastering Memory is a tool you can use to help improve the understanding and strategies of both Short-Term Memory and Transfer to Long-Term Memory. Both auditory and visual sequential memory are addressed and both are needed for many learning skills.
Mastering Memory was designed by Jane E. Mitchell, who trained as a Speech and Language Therapist and dyslexia teacher (RSA diploma in Specific Learning Difficulties). Her wide experience includes work at Westminster Children's hospital, a residential school for autistic children, and Fairley House School for dyslexic children. She has been a tutor for the RSA diploma and lectured for many years on memory, thinking and study skills at UCL and I CAN, where she was known for her useful practical approach.

The program was originally developed as a computerised version of the therapy tool Memory Bricks, which dates back to 1984. It was nominated for a BETT Special Needs award in 2002, is recommended by the BDA Computer Committee, used by many people at Dyslexia Action and at numerous schools and Speech and Language units.
Mastering Memory is more than a Memory Game! It was the first Memory-focused Brain Training on computer used in schools by therapists and teachers back in 1995. Since then it has been used to help 1000s of children, adults and the elderly to understand their strengths and weaknesses in short term and working memory and master metacognitive memory strategies to help peak performance in real life.
