Arrowsmith School Online

Build a stronger brain     Create a new reality     Transform your future

Arrowsmith School Online Programs

Students have the opportunity to strengthen their brains at home, online, while working with a trained teacher. Our in-person programs have been adapted for an online delivery experience

ARROWSMITH SCHOOL ONLINE

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

Research has shown that the Arrowsmith Program rewires the brain so the neural pathways crucial to learning become activated. Once rewired, those changes allow students to create a new reality for themselves and transform their future.

Learning difficulties do not need to be permanent. Our program is proven to increase learning capacity, improving the ability to actively participate in all aspects of life. Memory, reasoning, problem-solving, comprehension, written expression, and understanding social relations can all be improved. Learn more
