The Arrowsmith Program
Founded on neuroscience research, the Arrowsmith Program has over 30 years of experience demonstrating that it is possible for students to strengthen weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning dysfunctions through a program of specific cognitive exercises.
The Arrowsmith Program identifies, intervenes and strengthens the weak cognitive capacities that affect learning.
Students are able to capitalize on their increased learning capacities and after a two to four year program can function without special education assistance or program accommodations.
