Understanding Working Memory
Author 1: Tracey Packiam Alloway
Author 2: Ross Alloway
Working memory is how your brain stores information for a short period of time and how much you can fit on this ‘post-it note’ hugely influences how well you do at school and beyond. Understanding working memory means you will be able to better support children’s learning and concentration. This can be particularly useful to children with conditions such as dyslexia, ADHD and autistic spectrum disorders, where poor working memory is thought to be an underlying factor.
New to this edition are:
- A new chapter on emotional difficulties and working memory
- A clear chapter structure which looks at the what, where, why and how for every difficulty
- More information on how to work with younger children
This book will make sure you are able to spot problems early, work with children to improve their use of their working memory and ensure they reach their full potential.
