Understanding Working Memory - Tracy Packiam Alloway, Ross G Alloway
Working memory is how your brain stores information for a short period of time; and how much you can fit on this “post-it note” hugely influences how well you do at school and beyond. Understanding working memory means you will be able to better suppport children’s learning and concentration. This can be particularly useful to children with conditions such as dyslexia, ADHD and autism spectrum disorders, where poor working memory is thought to be an underlying factor. This book will make sure you are able to spot problems early, work with children to improve their working memory and ensure they reach their full potential.
The Successful Dyslexic - Neil Alexander-Passe
Member of SPELD Victoria’s Research Committee, Neil Alexander-Passe, published his tenth book The Successful Dyslexic Identify the Keys to Unlock Your Potential in 2017. Book features in depth interviews with some 37 dyslexics and further contributions of some 191 adult dyslexics in identifying the keys to success in home life, school, career choices, working relationships, coping strategies, traits and unique selling points.
The book interviews both successful and less successful adult dyslexics to understand the factors that have led to their outcomes. The book questions how school based trauma is used positively and negatively. The Successful Dyslexic aims to give parents and teachers the insights needed to guide their young dyslexics on a path to success.
