Effets d’un entrainement de la mémoire sérielle auprès d’enfants de 4-5 ans

Abstract : Purpose: this preliminary feasibility study aimed at designing a processing and retention skills of the serial order training, and to study its effects.
Method: 31 children aged 4 to 5 years old formed two groups: an experimental group of 16 subjects (EG) that practiced a serial memory training for three weeks and a control group of 15 subjects (CG) that did not. These children went through pre- and post-training tests that examined the evolution of the EG performances and compared it to that of the CG.
Results: the EG showed significantly higher gains than the CG regarding performance at a serial order reconstruction task. But the training effects regarding performance at tasks requiring other components of short-term memory or lexical skills, are inconclusive.
Conclusion: this study is the first to look into the effects of an intervention on the skills of serial memory. Preliminary results are encouraging as to the possibility of improving these skills with a specifically designed training.
