Building a Better Memory
The Turnabout Programme has a major impact for learners with the characteristics of dyslexia and attention deficit disorders. The Turnabout Programme develops many aspects of memory and other mental attributes to enable effective learning to take place.
Turnabout activities target specific aspects of memory; working memory, visual memory, auditory memory, memory retrieval, memory sequencing. Turnabout develops the interface between working and long-term memory, facilitating accurate retrieval of previous learning and helping pupils to retain information.
Following three months of Turnabout training, schools find that their pupils are able to make accelerated progress in literacy and are able to retain what they have learned. Many pupils with prior learning difficulties have advanced their reading age by one, two and sometimes three years, after only three months with this programme.
