The present study is concerned with the numerical solution, using finite difference method of a one-dimensional initial-boundary value problem for a linear Sobolev or pseudo-parabolic equation with initial jump. In order to obtain an efficient method, to provide good approximations with independence of the perturbation parameter, we have developed a numerical method which combines a finite difference spatial discretization on uniform mesh and the implicit rule on Shishkin mesh(S-mesh) for the time variable. The fully discrete scheme is shown to be convergent of order two in space and of order one expect for a logarithmic factor in time, uniformly in the singular perturbation parameter. Some numerical results confirming the expected behavior of the method are shown.
