Working memory is a key executive function for students. It allows students to retain information until it is needed, such as storing information needed for a test or the steps to a process. Students with working memory issues may have trouble accessing information, remembering instructions, paying attention or developing reading and math skills. With time and the right educational environment, it is possible to both build up working memory skills and develop strategies to minimize the effects. This page pulls together activities and teaching methods that our teachers have found successful in teaching these students.
