Description of workshop
Research has consistently demonstrated verbal working memory deficits in children with dyslexia, and has shown that not only do these deficits not get better over time- but that they may even increase with age. Recently, working memory programs have been introduced to the market as a way to improve reading skills. Despite quite an abundance of research, and the promotion of working memory training, it is still unclear exactly how working memory is related to poor word reading and what the implications are for treatment. This workshop will explore how the two cognitive skills may be related, and what this means for children with dyslexia.
