What do you think is the best way to remember things and how often do you need to go over it to keep it in your long term memory?

Long term memory, the website Memrise is great and using a method to commit things to your Long term memory. It basically reminds you to learn something and go over it every few hours

My 7 year old son has good long term memory but very poor short term memory. He has been working with an educational psychologist at school who has confirmed that his short term memory is very poor. He suggested activities that we try with him such as repetitive chanting and swaying with him whilst learning things such as times tables etc. Anything that turns it into a song or a rhythm so that it can end up going into long term memory recall.

It's hard though, very hard. My poor lad struggles a fair bit. If you give him a series of instructions (e.g. "go upstairs and fetch the hairbrush from the bathroom window sill"), he'll get as far as going upstairs before then having to shout down again to ask which room he's meant to be heading for, and what he's supposed to be fetching.

Good luck with it all. I hope you find a good method to help you cope.
