Remembering MomHi Remembering Mom:What you are describing is working memory, which is an executive functioning skill often impacted by ADHD.

It’s the ability to hold on to new information and have it stored in the brain so you can pull it out and use it (even at a later time) when needed.

I equate working memory to a two-lane highway: Information coming in must tether itself to the brain; and information must be ready to go out when prompted.I teach parents about working memory with this example: Your student is in math class at 8 am and learning fractions.
