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.
