YOUR ANSWER : Sometimes
With working memory problems, it is easy to miss part of what has been said. Your child might be hearing some of what is said but can’t hold all of it in his mind at the same time. He might not be able to follow instructions more than one or two steps.
This is not a diagnostic tool. If you have concerns about your child's working memory or executive function see a mental health professional. An accurate diagnosis can only be made through professional evaluation. Screener for personal use only.
