Both anxiety and working memory difficulties are commonly identified among children with dyslexia and other learning difficulties; and for children who have not received appropriate support, working memory difficulties may be compounded by high levels of anxiety. This short course takes on the format of a presentation and a journal article and will explore the relationship between working memory and anxiety, how both working memory and anxiety can affect children with reading difficulties, in particular, and then discuss practical ways of supporting working memory and anxiety in children.
