The Arrowsmith Program is built on the practical application of the neuroscience of neuroplasticity – the ability of the brain to change and rewire itself through intensive and focused effort. The genesis of the program was Barbara’s struggle with her own severe learning disabilities and her efforts, begun as a graduate student at the University of Toronto, and success in overcoming her cognitive deficits through intensive brain exercises utilizing specific areas of the brain that correlate to the weaknesses. Her journey of discovery and innovation as she developed and rigorously applied these exercises is described in her compelling book, The Woman who Changed her Brain.
The Arrowsmith Program of cognitive exercises is implemented in Canada, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Thailand, and South Korea.
LDA Manitoba has been offering the program since 2013 and we have seen first hand its remarkable and sustained results. Please join us for this fascinating (and free) presentation as Barbara explains how to address some of the most complex neurological challenges in a systematic way and the life changing outcomes.
