Welcome to the Luvin my Dyslexia Podcast. I am Stephen Anderson and this is session 45. Today I am speaking with a specialist Dr. Erica Warren. Erica will walk me today through the methods on how to remember someone’s name that seem to work for me. I hope you will enjoy this episode as I did!
“Aspiring to empower learners of all abilities, Dr. Warren created a degree program that united coursework and research in Special Education, Educational Psychology, School Psychology, and Adult Education. Her doctorate from the University of Georgia focused on life-long issues in learning, the impact of learning difficulties across the lifespan, and comprehensive diagnostic evaluations. In addition, she earned a Masters degree in Educational Psychology, which covered life-span development, learning, and cognition. Dr. Warren often describes her bachelor’s degree in fine arts as her secret weapon.
Dr. Warren’s diverse education has created a well-rounded expertise in the areas of mindful and multisensory learning, cognition and remediation. Much of Dr. Warren’s time remains devoted to working with students on an individualized basis where her unique, multisensory approach focuses on compensatory learning strategies, cognitive remediation, study strategies and remedial reading, writing and math methods. Dr. Warren founded Learning to Learn, her private practice, in 1999 and later created her educational resources and materials sites: Good Sensory Learning and Dyslexia Materials.“
Take Aways from this Episode:
Methods of Remembering Someones’ Name
1. Change your negative self-talk
I can remember names!
I can do this!
I am open to learning strategies that are going to make me successful!
2. Associate image to remember someone’s name
Use visual recognition and then the memory strategy
3. When you look at the person try to find something that jumps out at you about them that will help you remember them
4. Visualize a specific story when you see that person
It is more memorable when you self-generate the story
5. Collect images of the people with their name and create your own memory strategy
6. Attach your strategy on something that is permanent on a person
7. Learn their name before you even meet them
It will give you so much more confidence in your interaction with them!
