Abstract

A person who has experienced a traumatic brain injury may have speech, language, cognition, and/or swallowing problems. In addition, memory deficits are just one of the many problems a person who has had a traumatic brain injury may experience (“Traumatic Brain Injury”, n.d.). This study will review the treatment of memory deficits in people who have had a traumatic brain injury. Memory may be considered a general term. However, there are many different stages and types of memory including long-term, short-term, procedural, episodic, and semantic. In the treatment of memory, techniques such as implementing memory aids can be effective. This review summarizes articles including memory aids. The articles were obtained through over five of online databases. The review will assess the effectiveness of different types of memory aids in people who have had a traumatic brain injury.
