ONLINE: WORKING MEMORY IN THE CLASSROOM

 

 

How do working memory difficulties show up in the classroom and the SET room? We will examine what things students may find difficult, the role of working memory in learning and in daily life and we will look at strategies to intervene in order to help students make progress.
