For Parents and Educators

The following resources are for parents and educators interested in issues related to the research conducted in the WMP lab.

If you are interested to learn more about how working memory affects children in the classroom, see here for an excellent booklet put together by Drs. Gathercole and Packiam Alloway (UK). This booklet provides an introduction to working memory and the role it plays in everyday life, especially in supporting learning in school.

Although we are developing computerized games and applications to foster working memory skills, there are many off-the shelf card and board games targeting those skills as well, and they can also get children (and adults) off their screens and tablets to interact as a family. Download a list of games here.
