Abstract

Cerebral infarcts occur in approximately 30% of children with sickle cell disease (SCD), but little information exists regarding remediation of associated cognitive deficits. The authors examined the benefits of training children with infarcts to use memory strategies. Six children with SCD-related infarcts received academic tutoring; three of these children received additional training in memory strategies (silent rehearsal to facilitate short-term memory and semantic organization to facilitate long-term memory). The performance of children receiving strategy training appeared to improve more than that of children receiving only tutoring. Memory in children with SCD-related infarcts may be enhanced through strategy training.
