Children’s Health Council Hosts Barbara Arrowsmith-Young: Changing Brains, Shaping the Mind – Neuroplasticity & Learning

In this presentation she will talk about her journey of discovery, the lines of research she combined to develop her innovative Program and the outcomes achieved over her 40 years as an educator and researcher. 

She will describe a range of learning disorders, from those that impact the learner in school to those that affect us in life.  ‘Cognitive glitches’ – those areas of weakness that we are all familiar with and often explain away by saying, “I am just not good at navigating, recognizing faces, (fill in the blank) – will be discussed. Barbara will also explore ‘cognitive mismatches’ – situations we find ourselves in where the demand of the task is incompatible with our cognitive functioning and the difficulties this presents. 

The audience will gain insight into the principles of neuroplasticity and begin to look at behavior through a cognitive lens. They will build an understanding that through harnessing the principles of neuroplasticity we can shape our brain and overcome challenges.
