I have delivered presentations in over 20 countries, including the USA, Canada, UK, Singapore, and China. I have worked together US organizations such as the National Center for Learning Disabilities and CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), as well as delivered keynote addresses internationally (example: to the Japanese Society for Developmental Psychology and the Center on Research on Individual Development and Adaptive Education of Children at Risk (IDeA) in Germany).
I can deliver presentations in person or via Skype. Topics include:
WHAT is Working Memory? Is it different from short-term memory? How can we move information from our working memory to our long-term memory?
WHY is Working Memory important in education? How does Working Memory help us learn to read and solve math problems? What is the connection between Working Memory and learning styles? I present evidence from Kindergarten to High School for how Working Memory is linked to learning.
HOW can we assess and train Working Memory? What are the tools in the educator's toolkit that can be used to diagnose and support your student's learning? I will also discuss strategies to boost Working Memory in those with Dyslexia, ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, and Motor Difficulties.
