A presentation by the Arrowsmith Australian and New Zealand representative, Debbie Gilmore
Debbie Gilmore will talk about the Arrowsmith Program, the lines of research that were combined to develop the program and the outcomes achieved for individuals with learning difficulties over 35 years. Built on the principle of neuroplasticity, the Arrowsmith Program identifies, intervenes and strengthens the weak cognitive capacities that affect learning.
A number of cognitive functions and dysfunctions will be described and how these impact on the learner in school to those that affect individuals in life. The focus will be on learning disorders that impact academic performance such as reading and writing and some of the studies demonstrating cognitive and academic performance change in these areas as a result of students engaging in the Arrowsmith Program's cognitive exercises.

When & Where
The Arrowsmith Program is founded on neuroscience research and over 35 years of experience demonstrating that it is possible for students to strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning dysfunctions through a program of specific cognitive exercises.
Our program has proven effective for students having difficulty with reading, writing and mathematics, comprehension, logical reasoning, problem solving, visual and auditory memory, non-verbal learning, attention, processing speed and dyslexia.
