Do you know or suspect that your child has a learning disability?

Did you know that learning disabilities don’t have to be permanent?

The goal of the Arrowsmith Program is to identify, intervene and strengthen areas of cognitive weakness that affect learning. The Arrowsmith Program deals with the root causes of a learning disability, rather than managing its symptoms. Our goal is for children to become effective, confident and self-directed learners for life.

Arrowsmith School is an independent co-educational and non-denominational day school headquartered in mid-town Toronto. We offer both full time and part time programs with the sole purpose of helping individuals of all ages with specific learning difficulties.

Is Arrowsmith suitable for your child?

Students entering the Arrowsmith School Toronto have ordinarily been experiencing a range of problems including:

  • reading
  • writing
  • mathematics
  • comprehension
  • logical reasoning
  • visual memory
  • auditory memory
  • dyslexia
  • non-verbal learning

We encourage you to complete the Arrowsmith Program® Cognitive Profile Questionnaire , which helps to determine whether your child’s learning difficulties are typical of those addressed by the Arrowsmith Program.

  • is of average or above average intelligence
  • has a combination of the learning dysfunctions described in the Descriptions of Learning Dysfunctions
  • does not have severe intellectual, cognitive, emotional or behavioural disorders that would significantly affect his or her ability to participate in the Arrowsmith Program
