Join the Tri-Town SEPAC for our Working Memory Presentation!
We all can recall a time when we sat in class listening to a teacher who spoke too quickly, was too disorganized for us to follow, or presented ideas that were too complicated for us to grasp. With our working memory on overdrive, we instantly found ourselves lost and overwhelmed.
Many students with language, attention, and/or executive function weaknesses experience this frustration all day, every day due to underlying working memory limitations.
This presentation will define working memory, explain how it's assessed, then explore how working memory affects listening, speaking, reading and writing, and learning. Practical guidelines and strategies will be shared, which parents can use to support students of all ages.

The event will be in the Masco MS Library
