Schools need to provide effective instruction and intervention for students who struggle with academic learning: in many instances due to a weakness in one or more aspects of memory or of memory capabilities.

Filled with dozens of practical, effective, evidence-based memory interventions, this workbook includes numerous methods and strategies, such as chunking, organisation, keyword, self-testing, rehearsal, and mnemonics.

This book is the first of its kind for school psychologists and special education teachers who need practical, easy-to-implement, and evidence-based methods for working with children struggling with memory impairments.
