Working Memory

After testing my students by Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scales, I interpret their cognitive abilities and try to improve their skills. Hearing-impaired children are faced with some challenges at school in learning and problem-solving tasks because of weak working memory skills. for teenagers, I use these cards; I give them some time to memorize the colors and shapes in sequence, then they have to recall them; First the colors and then the shapes and then vice versa. in the following picture, they helped me with cutting papers.

        

Circular houses

Today I worked with a lovely six-year-old boy who uses CI. I have some plans for his hyperactivity, attention disorder, impulsiveness, cognitive skills and fine motor skills.
At first, I encouraged him to draw several circles in order to make animals home. Green circles and blue (for sea animals). We worked on animals’ names and classified them. He paid attention to sizes of circles and animals. This game improves visual scanning skills as well.
