Gathercole, Susan; Pickering, Susan
British Journal of Special Education, v28 n2 p89-97 Jun 2001
This study compared the working memory abilities of children identified as having special educational needs with those making normal academic progress at ages 7 and 8. Special needs children showed marked working memory impairments, especially on tasks tapping central executive functions. Results have implications for identifying children at risk of low achievement. (Contains references.) (DB)
