'The accurate assessment of working memory difficulties and the implementation of appropriate strategies is very pertinent to meeting the learning needs of pupils with special educational needs (SEN). This publication provides practical examples, case studies, tips and pointers to enable practitioners in education to support children and young people to become successful independent learners. Most certainly a worthwhile read for those involved in working with diverse learners' -
