Review

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 Jarrold Professor of Cognitive Development, University of Bristol Working memory is the small amount of information held in mind to complete cognitive tasks, so it is central to an understanding of how people think. Lucy Henry has been a pioneer in the application of the working memory concept in research on the typical and atypical development of intellectual abilities in children. This volume stems from her rare and invaluable combination of theoretical and practical knowledge of working memory processes, which is disseminated here in a clear, organized, and penetrating fashion. Important older research that must not be forgotten is integrated with newer research pointing to innovative directions for education and the behavioural remediation of disabilities. Students at any level and researchers all can benefit from this book, and will enjoy reading it Nelson Cowan, Ph.D. Curators' Professor, University of Missouri ...this material is accessible, and it is helpful in underpinning discussion of difficulties in learning experienced by some children. It will be of particular interest to SENCOs and specialist support teachers SENCO Update
