The Eaton Arrowsmith Approach
At Eaton Arrowsmith we teach our students a series of exercises to help them strengthen their brains and address the cognitive weaknesses that cause their specific learning difficulties.
All of our schools operate on the principle of neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to be strengthened over time with targeted training. This sets us apart from other learning intervention programs. Traditionally, a student who struggled with handwriting, for example, would learn to use a keyboard or be given more time to write tests.
We don’t teach students to work around their difficulties; we help them address them.
Over a 35-year history, Arrowsmith graduates have returned to public and private schools with an increased ability to learn. Our students go on to complete university degrees, find employment in their chosen fields, and pursue their dreams.
The Arrowsmith Program
Think of the Arrowsmith Program like exercise for your child’s brain – mental training. Going to the gym has countless benefits for our muscles, heart and overall health. Cognitive exercises have a similar effect: they get the brain into shape so it has a greater capacity to absorb information.
If you were to try and run a marathon without training, it would be a challenging, if not, impossible task. But if you ran a little further every day for a year, you would definitely finish the race and might even win.
