My work in this area has focused on both computerised and classroom based interventions. To date, I have evaluated two major interventions the first being a classroom based intervention called ‘Memory Mates’ that was based on training and disseminating metacognitive prompts within the classroom. The results so far have been promising with significant increases in standardised tests of spelling and mathematics. The second intervention explored the efficacy of action video game playing on the reading abilities of dyslexic children, again preliminary results have been promising. Follow me on twitter to keep up-to-date with the progress of these interventions.
