A good working memory is crucial to becoming a successful learner, yet there is very little material available in an easy to use formay that explains the concept and offers practitioners ways to support children with poor working memory in the classroom.
This book provides a coherent overview of the role played by working memory in learning during the school years and uses theory to inform good practice.
Topics covered include:
- The link between memory skills and key areas of learning
- the relationship between working memory and children with developmental disorders
- assessment of children for working memory assessments
- strategies for supporting working memory in under-performing children
This accessible guide will help SENCO’s, teachers, teaching assistants, speech and language therapists and educational psychologists to understand memory in their setting.
