Research demonstrates a direct link between working memory difficulties and learners’ academic attainment. Having a good working memory is strongly linked to reading and academic achievement while a low working memory capacity can manifest itself in a student’s lack of focus, difficulty in remembering instructions and disorganised and erratic behaviour.
This interactive workshop provides an overview of processing and working memory and will give you a greater understanding of:
- How to support learners with a working memory deficit to access the curriculum.
- The internal and external difficulties of a learner with a weak working memory
- A range of Smart Strategies™ to help you develop the learning potential of the children and young people.
