Question by : Can neuropsychology help with non-major cognitive impairments?
For instance, if someone has a terrible memory or is a slow learner… can that be fixed?
Answer by cavassi
It is possible in some cases to improve a person’s performance in some areas through mental exercises or strategies and even if the neurological function cannot be improved or repaired, the person can learn strategies, such as taking notes or making a list, that would improve functioning by circumventing the problem. Use of these strategies over time might result in other parts of the brain taking over and functioning in a similar fashion. Some neuropsychologists are very creative and people in other fields, such as occupational therapy and speech therapy, have developed methods that can be effective. Effectiveness, however, is often a very individual result. There are no general solutions.
