Working memory is often an area of weakness in neurodivergent children. Educators often know what this means, but seek practical ideas and strategies for how to support children with reduced working memory. This is a practical workshop in which you will explore working memory difficulties and how to support them, both in the classroom and in tutoring/intervention sessions. We will explore what working memory is, what happens when it is compromised and how to identify working memory difficulties. You’ll be taken through a checklist for evaluating your practice. You will also be offered some practical strategies to use in class situations and intervention sessions. Participants will come away with some quick wins, ideas to try and principles for your teaching which should be transformational for your students.
**This webinar will be recorded and available for two weeks after the event**
