ADHD and Working Memory in Children
[Source: Your Therapy Source]
Do you work with children who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)? ADHD symptoms may include deficits in executive functions such as working memory. Researchers have explored ADHD and memory in children in order to understand any memory problems that may be present in this group of children.
Working memory is an important cognitive function. It allows us to temporarily store small amounts of important things that are readily accessible so we can process the information. This ability helps with planning, comprehension, reasoning, and problem-solving.
