This book provides an excellent overview of the application of Baddeley's working memory model to the study of working memory development. It is particularly strong on the development of working memory in atypical groups, and has a clarity and practical focus that would make it the perfect introduction to the area for an undergraduate reader Chris JarroldProfessor of Cognitive Development, University of Bristol
The course that I am teaching does not directly explore the development of working memory in children. Nevertheless, I still recommend this book to my students as it provides essential information on the speech processing with respect to the working memory load. In accordance with the methods and techniques that are described in great detail in this book, my students can predict certain strategic effects, or even outcomes, of the prospective experiments.
I am most certainly going to employ this book as essential reading in the first language acquisition course.
Comprehensive text, a great introduction for undergraduate students. Lots of information about atypical development making it a valuable resource for those working as SENCOs or supporting young children in practice.
A detailed summary of the key research in the field , which is also considered in relation to a number of different SENs
This book draws together a range of theories and models on the working memory. It is an extremely comprehensive and accessible study, which is useful at all stages of education, not just children. The comparison of how working memory develops in children with different learning difficulties and disabilities makes for fascinating reading and helps to provide insight into how poor working memory can impact on learning.
Very useful book for anyone working with primary school -aged children
A very clear and well-organised book. Baddeley's working memory model is shown and explained clearly. Throughout, the book focuses on typically developing working memory and that of those with atypical development which is very useful, particularly for my MA Dyslexia Research and Practice. A very useful resource.
A detailed analysis from a positivist position.
I would recommend this book to all practitioners working in the primary sector.
A very interesting book useful for students studying at foundation degree level
Excellent detail and discussion of models of working memory, measurement and development of working memory, that is appropriate for students on Master's degrees. Boxes give relevant examples that help to clarify / support the discussion making it accessible also for students working at undergraduate level. Reference is made to the key research in the field. The discussion of working memory in relation to specific learning difficulties is particularly useful for dyslexia courses.
I use this book for my research on Cognitive Rehabilitation and it is a highly recommended book for all my students taking the course on Children Cognitive Rehabilitation.
very useful for teachers of students with SEN
This will be a very useful book for students researching classroom strategies employed in teaching young children especially at Masters level.
Excellent, clear and accessible.
a useful book which helps students to understand the significance of working memory and helps think about how to intervene to help learners
This is a good solid text. The underpinning issues are thoroughly dealt with and the links between theoretical positions and concrete examples developed. Not quite right for the units I teach on but a good secondary text.
A theoretical look at Memory which aids communication skills and knowledge base for students. Those who are wishing to work in the field of special educational needs will find this valuable.
