Researchers at the University of Southern California have found that you need to use short term and long term memory in learning new tasks. Although it is difficult to work on two or more tasks at once, when the brain is required to switch between tasks, it engages the long term memory. So when helping family members or clients with therapy tasks, have them start to multitask, add randomness to the training and make sure you don’t do the same task in the same manner repetitively. Switch things up a bit!
