Memory strategies are often taught by speech language pathologists to individuals with memory impairments. Information about the relationship between memory strategies and individual differences could provide better direction for treatment approaches. This study explored the relationship between memory strategies and sensory modality strengths. Forty "typical" adults completed various memory tasks and learning style assessments and reported memory strategies. No significant relationship between sensory modality strength and memory strategies used to complete the various memory tasks was found. Individuals used a variety of memory strategies unrelated to their sensory modality strength and the type of memory task. Speech language pathologists should be aware of their clients' individual differences and be prepared to teach an assortment of strategies to clients with memory impairments.
