The lessons are organized into these units:

Activities consist of recalling specific words; identifying key elements and irrelevant elements in sentences, messages, and paragraphs; and prioritizing information to remember.
- Coding and Grouping Items for Recall Clients learn to organize incoming information so they can retrieve it efficiently. They associate items by pairs, categorize items, and group.
- Using Aids to Remember This section teaches a variety of practical memory aids for organizing and recalling different types of information. Strategies include chunking information, using acronyms, word lists, rhymes, catch phrases, and visual imagery. There are school related strategies such as note taking and the use of outlines, time lines, mapping, and webbing techniques.
- Applying Memory Techniques Clients practice using memory strategies in daily activities such as filling out forms, following directions, paraphrasing messages, and recalling information from picture scenes.
