About Us

Our History

The Arrowsmith Program has been creating new realities and transforming the futures for those with learning difficulties since 1978 when its program of cognitive exercises was first offered to students with learning difficulties. 

What we have discovered  over the past four decades in our real-world lab at the Arrowsmith Schools, Canada, and in 90 classrooms around the world, is that learning capacities can be enhanced. This has been reflected by multiple academic studies performed at several universities in four countries. Learn more about our research

Arrowsmith School Online opens its virtual doors on the 8th of September 2020, providing online access to our individualized cognitive programs to students, at-home, working with a trained cognitive teacher. 

Who is Arrowsmith School Online for?

Students who come to Arrowsmith School Online have been struggling in school – some are just starting their schooling but their experience has already shown a pattern of learning problems. Others have been finding school a challenge for years.

The Arrowsmith Program cognitive exercises offered at our school, strengthen fundamental aspects of learning such as attention, comprehension, working memory, communication, reasoning, numeracy, social-emotional intelligence, and wellbeing. The Program has been transformative for individuals with specific learning difficulties including dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, processing speed, attention difficulties, working memory, and executive function issues.

For an overview of the more common problems addressed please read our Chart of Learning Outcomes.

Our Approach is Personalized to the Learner – The Arrowsmith Assessment

Each new student undergoes an assessment online with our psychometrist to identify his or her learning profile

This profile is used to design the cognitive program necessary to improve identified weaknesses and strengthen these cognitive capacities.

Our goal is for our students to become effective, confident, and self-directed learners for life and to enable them to achieve their goals of academic and career success.

Virtual Learning – How it works

Our technology allows us to monitor student performance minute by minute and provides our teachers with the ability to provide real-time feedback, in our virtual learning environment. 

This allows students to stay on task and build their mastery while working at-home on their cognitive exercises.
