A replication of the Helsingborg study (Tideman, et al., 2011) was conducted in the municipality of Norrköping in 2008–2011. Results confirm the conclusions from the original study that children in foster care can benefit from a working model aimed to improve school performance. Furthermore, a possible way to address poor numeracy skills by computerised working memory training was identified. Implications for further research in active interventions to address underachieving foster children are discussed.
