Buckley, Sue

For more than 25 years people have known that children and adults with Down syndrome have a specific impairments in working memory. Within the working memory system, they have particular difficulty with the verbal short-term memory part of the system. However, memory training may become more popular as recent work with both children with Down syndrome and non-disabled children has shown positive effects.

These studies were conducted by Francis Conners and colleagues and Sue Gathercole and colleagues. (Contains 1 box.)
