Working memory supports classroom learning. Low levels of working performance are widely reported in groups of children with difficulties in reading, maths and science. Dr Joni Holmes will review the impact of working memory problems in the classroom and discuss how these issues can be managed. She will also emphasise the need to consider broader cognitive profiles when developing targeted interventions to support individual children.
Joni is interested in the overlap between working memory, attention and executive function processes in children and adults. Her research has focussed on the role of working memory in children's mathematical skills, and on understanding the cognitive and behavioural profiles of children with disorders of memory and attention. She is currently developing and evaluating targeted interventions to overcome these difficulties.
