Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a clearly written and well-organised book, providing valuable information about working memory and how it can affect individuals' learning and progress in an educational context. It is a 'must read' for all teachers and support assistants in primary and secondary schools. Many parents are likely to find the book of interest to them if they have a child with any of the disorders discussed in the book. Undergraduate psychology students would also benefit from reading this book as background understanding to working memory in context - the references and further reading offering opportunity to extend their knowledge.--Jenny Moody, Postgraduate Psychology Tutor, Dyslexia Action

The clear structure and lack of jargon make the book accessible to a wide range of readers... I was especially impressed that anxiety disorders were included because these can have a debilitating effect on a student, and yet they are often missed out of books on special needs. The case studies are helpful and provide examples of how students can be affected, together with specific strategies that can be used to help them. --Amanda Swannell

It is a very handy, "go to" reference for students, teachers and parents about the nature of working memory difficulties and how these can manifest themselves within the areas of Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, DCD, ADHD, ASD and Anxiety disorders. --Janet Oostendorp

The book is a refreshing welcome addition to the field of special education, and promises to be a great success among educators.
