  1. Get the learner to highlight or summarize information that should be remembered.
  2. Get the learner to repeat to themselves info just heard to help remember the information.
  3. Make sure the learner is not required to learn more information than they are capable of learning at any time.
  4. Make sure the learner has sufficient chances for the repetition of information through various experiences to enable memory.
  5. Draft an agreement with the learner stipulating what behavior is required (e.g., following one-step instructions, two-step instructions, etc.) and which reinforcement will be implemented when the agreement has been met.
  6. Praise the learner for demonstrating short-term or long-term memory skills based on the duration of time the learner can be successful. As the learner shows success, slowly increase the duration of time required for reinforcement.
  7. Praise the learner for demonstrating short-term or long-term memory skills: (a) give the learner a concrete reward (e.g., privileges, line leading, passing out learning materials, 10 minutes of free time, etc.), or (b) give the learner an informal reward (e.g., praise, handshake, smile, etc.).
