Background There is international recognition of the need for creative, classroom-based interventions to support children at risk of low academic achievement and well-being, due to poor attention and language skills on school entry. Working memory (WM) is a cognitive skill that is strongly associated with attention and language skills. There has been speculation that WM training, embedded within typical educational activities, may improve children’s WM skills and produce transfer effects to real...

Introduction: Obesity is a global pandemic associated with comorbidities, premature death and significant healthcare costs. Increases in obesity are being recorded for people with intellectual disabilities, but at a higher rate compared to the general population. Obesity and weight management guidance recommends evidence-based obesity interventions - comprising energy-deficit-diets, physical activity, and behaviour change techniques - which are tailored to meet the needs of specific populations....

Whilst people with intellectual disability grow older, evidence has emerged internationally about the largely unmet health needs of this specific ageing population. Health checks have been implemented in some countries to address those health inequalities. Evaluations have focused on measuring process outcomes due to challenges measuring quality of life outcomes. In addition, the cost-effectiveness is currently unknown. As part of a national guideline for this population we sought to explore the...

It has been suggested that diverse interventions applied within children’s everyday contexts have the potential to improve working memory (WM) and produce transfer to real-world skills but little is known about the effectiveness of these approaches. This review aims to examine systematically the effectiveness of non-computerised interventions with 4- 11 year olds to identify: i) their effects on WM; ii) whether benefits extend to near- and far-transfer measures; iii) if gains are sustained over ...
