Later chapters are devoted to the role of working memory problems in specific disorders: dyslexia, dyscalculia, developmental coordination disorder, ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, and anxiety disorders. Each of these chapters gives classroom strategies to support the development of working memory. The book also outlines a school-based program to support working memory. The bookAEs reader friendly layout offers frequent headings, case study boxes, science boxes, and summary points. This second edition contains a new chapter on emotional difficulties and working memory, along with more information on working with younger children; chapters are reorganized for clarity.
