Does your child have memory problems?

 I will ask him what he did over at his grandparents and he will look at me blankly and ask what did I do? I will say I don't know, I wasn't there. Same with any trip before yesterday. He has no idea. You can see the panic in his eyes.

The funny part is that he has a great "working memory" when tested. He can remember facts. So can his Dad.

Depends. Sometimes he can remember what he did during the day and sometimes he will remember something from months ago randomly but a lot of times he doesn't remeber what happened 5min ago.

short term memory he has problems but he has amazing skills when asked to recite things.  If you are concerned they can do testing.  We did for my DS.

I was given memory games and tasks to help with his memory.

My son's issue is mostly verbal communication. So I attribute him not being able to tell me b.c we are still working on getting his speech up to speed.

The other day though, he told dh, "dad, today, i went to the computer store to get computer fixed!" He was very proud too :) So was I :)

DS has a terrible memory with most things but he can retain the most random bits and pieces of conversation.

I hope it improves because learning things like the multiplication tables are hard for him right now.

 I have a terrible memory for stuff like that too.

I am good at math (graduated as computer engineer, taught Calc, etc) but memorizing random things like a multiplication table was always almost impossible. I made it out okay in school. Maybe your kid is like that?

I really hope so. I love him like crazy, but his brain is so different from my own that I feel lost with him sometimes.
