Pupils hit by memory issue29th February 2008
Research carried out by a team from Durham University has suggested that one in 10 children might have a â€śworking memoryâ€? impairment that causes them to do less well than expected at school.
The experts found the problem in 10% of more than 3,000 schoolchildren across all ages but fear that half a million primary school children could be affected. They say teachers rarely identify the impairment â€“ which involves remembering things such as verbal instructions, names or telephone numbers - and often tend to label pupils as being unmotivated daydreamers.
