The purpose of the study was to determine whether specific auditory and visual memory training improves the ability of kindergarten children to retain auditory and visual stimuli. Auditory and visual pretests were administered. The children were involved in auditory and visual memory training activities for 15-min sessions on 25 days. Following the training, auditory and visual posttests were administered. The pre- and posttest scores were compared. The results support the notion that memory training does increase a child's ability to retain stimuli.
