Auditory Memory

Auditory memory is the ability to remember what is heard. It is important in helping your child to follow longer instructions and understand more detailed conversations at home and in class. Some children have difficulty remembering information that they hear, e.g: recalling the sequence or detail and the main idea of what is said. Long instructions can pose particular problems. https://speechbloguk.com/games-to-improve-auditory-memory/
