Memory

My 9year old son has the bad memory. He can do only one job at a time. If I give him more than one he's not able to do it. He will remember only one job and forgets everything else.Is this common in 9yeal olds?Also, he talks a lot. If he talks he wont pay attention on the jobs.

This behavior is not particularly uncommon in children of that age. Working memory is the skill that is required to recall and follow directions. If a child has certain conditions, such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, working memory is often impaired. When you give him directions, be sure he is next to you and that you establish eye contact. Then, have him repeat the directions before he proceeds to execute them.
