As a Speech Pathologist who has been working in the area literacy and learning difficulties for many years, “WORKING MEMORY” is a term that comes up often. Not only does it come up often, but I feel that it has a HUGE impact on not only our ability to learn, but on our entire lives. This stems from my personal experiences with working memory, and the experience of doing long-therapy with children and adults who have working memory difficulties. Working Memory predicts academic success from kindergarten to university and is linked to learning in those with ADHD, dyslexia, and autism.This essentially means, that the smartest person in the classroom, is not always getting the best marks. I don’t know about you - but this little nugget of information made me feel pretty good! Before we get into that, today’s episode is brought to you by our amazing and FREE red flags checklist. This is a tick & flick resource that parents, teachers and professionals can use to identify red flags in children from infancy, up to high school!
