People with learning challenges have traditionally been taught methods to help compensate for their difficulties. By contrast, using the science of Neuroplasticity, the Arrowsmith Program works to identify, intervene and strengthen the weak cognitive capacities that affect learning. The cognitive exercises used in the Arrowsmith Program work on the root causes of the learning disability rather than the management of its symptoms.
The Arrowsmith Program is suitable for people who feel challenged when learning, as well as students dealing with mild to severe learning disabilities. Our program has proven successful with students of all ages from elementary through post-secondary school and with adults. Each student works independently on a program developed to their specific needs.
Depending on their learning challenges, students in the Arrowsmith Program work to:
- build and strengthen cognitive processes that are necessary for more efficient learning
- strengthen reading, writing and math skills
- train visual and auditory memory, as well as attention and concentration
- strengthen working memory, processing speed and cognitive efficiency
- build the capacity for both verbal and non-verbal thinking, reasoning and problem solving
- strengthen executive functioning skills
