Abstract

Introduction: It is now well known that the promotion of the adequate working memory (WM), must occur early, starting in the preschool, in order to boost this ability even before the child enters formal schooling. Aim: With this purpose, a program for the stimulation of WM in preschool (“Brincar e Pensar para Aprender a Memorizar”) was developed from scratch, specifically designed to be implemented in small groups, in the context of the classroom. The present article summarizes the development of the program and the phases of its validation process, until the test phase with the appreciation by the educators involved. Materials and Methods: For the process of validation by experts, a guide was used to assess the program with various parameters, including, for example, reflection on its relevance, feasibility, interest and points for improvement. For the evaluation on the implementation of the program a registration grid was used, filled in at the end of each session, in which the applicators pointed out the interest and participation of the group, the main difficulties felt and registered suggestions or points for improvement. Four experts from the fields of neuropsychology and education were involved in the validation process and eight professionals in the implementation of the program in two schools, one public and one private. Results: This article summarises the development of the construction of this programme, and the phases of its validation process, up to the test phase of its implementation and its appreciation by educators, listing the strengths and difficulties encountered. Conclusion: Both the panel of experts and the evaluation made by education professionals found interest in the program and feasibility in its implementation.
