Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a highly original book for which there are no obvious competitors. It explores the role of working memory deficits in a wide range of developmental disorders. There are other books on developmental disorders, or on working memory, but none I'm aware of with this conjunction of topics." - Dorothy Bishop, Professor of Developmental Neuropsychology, University of Oxford

"It is really enjoyable to read an edited text where the theme is conceptual, rather than primarily "disorder-based". The central focus on working memory in the developmental context is topical, and highly relevant to the understanding of developmental disorders. To my knowledge there is no similar text available, and so this one makes a significant contribution. Methodologically, the text is strong, with all authors providing a strong empirical pace for their arguments." - Vicki Anderson, Professorial Fellow, Departments of Psychology & Paediatrics, University of Melbourne
