The Arrowsmith Program:
Addressing Learning Disabilities – A Cognitive Approach
In this presentation, Barbara will talk about her journey of discovery, the lines of research she combined and the outcomes achieved over her 35 years as an educator and researcher.
She will describe a number of learning disorders, from those that impact the learner in school to those that affect us in life. The focus will be on learning disorders that impact academic performance such as reading and writing and some of the outcome 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.
