This comprehensively revised and updated volume brings together leading researchers involved in applying and developing understanding of working memory in the context of a variety of neurodevelopmental disorders, neurocognitive disorders, and depressive disorders. International experts focus on the working memory profiles of individuals including those with Down's syndrome, Autism, Specific Language Impairment and ADHD, and identify ways to alleviate the anticipated learning difficulties of children with deficits of working memory. Each chapter provides a description of the disorder and investigates the working memory and related executive function deficits.

It goes on to provide a neurological profile, before exploring the impact of the disorder in daily functions, the current debates related to this disorder, and the potential effects of medication and intervention. Through combining coverage of theoretical understanding, methods of assessment, and different evidence-based intervention programs, the book supports clinical assessment and management of poor working memory. The focus on exploring the specific role of working memory deficits in a wide range of neurodevelopmental disorders makes this a unique contribution to the field.

It is essential reading for students in neurodevelopmental disorders, atypical development and developmental psychopathology as well as allied health professionals, clinicians and those working with children in education and healthcare settings.
