In her presentation entitled “The Arrowsmith Program: Addressing Learning Disabilities—A Cognitive Approach,” Barbara Arrowsmith-Young 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.
As the creator of one of the first practical treatment applications using the principles of neuroplasticity, Barbara Arrowsmith-Young is recognized as a pioneer. Her experiences not only led to the groundbreaking Arrowsmith Program, but the genesis of her international bestseller, The Woman Who Changed Her Brain.
Arrowsmith-Young holds a B.A.Sc in Child Studies from the University of Guelph and a Master’s degree in School Psychology from the University of Toronto.
There will be a book signing after the event. Attendees may bring their own, or purchase a copy of The Woman Who Changed Her Brain at the door for $10.
