Understanding Working Memory by Tracy Packlam Alloway and Ross G. Alloway

Unlock the secrets of working memory with “Understanding Working Memory” by Tracy Packlam Alloway and Ross G. Alloway. Working memory, akin to a temporary mental “post-it note,” plays a vital role in learning and concentration, impacting one’s academic and future success. This book is your guide to comprehending working memory, equipping you to better support children’s learning, especially those with conditions like dyslexia, ADHD, and autistic spectrum disorders, where working memory challenges are often a contributing factor.

In this updated edition, you’ll find:

  • A new chapter on emotional difficulties and their connection to working memory.
  • A clear and structured chapter format that delves into the what, where, why, and how of every working memory challenge.
  • Enhanced insights on working with younger children, ensuring early problem identification and effective support.

“Understanding Working Memory” empowers you to identify potential issues early, collaborate with children to enhance their working memory, and guide them toward reaching their full potential.
