Today we have a return guest of Sincerely, Mrs. Mommy, award winning Psychologist Dr. Tracy Packiam Alloway! You may remember her blog article from a couple weeks ago, “The Difference Between ADHD and Gifted Plus Helpful Tips on What to Do Next.”

In this episode we dive deeper into the world of working memory and how it affects our ability to learn. As Dr. Alloway explains further, we practice working memory when we’re “… actively joining [the] knowledge that we know with new information that we’re learning.” She helps us understand why working memory is a critical skill to have and develop for the classroom, the workplace, and our every day lives.
