The development of working memory in children.


The development of working memory in children.

Henry, Lucy.

Sage Publications


376 pages




Henry (psychology, London South Bank U., UK) presents a text for professionals involved with children, though it's accessible to a broader audience. She begins with a thorough presentation of working memory and how it's measured, including why the model has proved useful in numerous contexts. Ensuing chapters discuss working memory and typically developing children; and these are followed by chapters pertaining to children with disabilities or impairments involving intellect, language, Down syndrome and Williams syndrome, and autism spectrum disorders.
