WHAT IS DYSLEXIA? It is a known brain disorder defined by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders as ‘an alternative term used to refer to a pattern of learning difficulties characterized by problems with accurate or fluent word recognition, poor decoding and poor spelling abilities.’
HOW DOES ARROWSMITH PROGRAM APPROACH LEARNING DIFFICULTIES?
- Over 20 studies into the Arrowsmith Program have shown that learning difficulties need not be permanent. Arrowsmith has pioneered the application of neuroplasticity, which is the brain’s ability to change throughout life, to allow learning difficulties to be overcome.
- Our program doesn’t simply help the students manage their learning difficulty; it’s proven to increase their capacity to learn. Arrowsmith’s cognitive exercises help rewire the brain so neural pathways crucial to learning become activated and, once rewired, those changes become permanent
- The Arrowsmith Program has been recognized by Sharp Brains as the Most Innovative Special Education Program of its kind.
HOW CAN WE HELP WITH DYSLEXIA?
- What does this mean for people with dyslexia? It means their brains change and in turn, begin to learn in the way it was designed to do.
- Of course, if our brains are so distinctive, so too must be the method of improving them. To understand each person’s dyslexia, we must first understand their unique learning profile. This enables the Arrowsmith Program to identify a program of specific cognitive exercises to be calibrated each student’s needs.
- Our approach has been creating new realities and transforming the futures of students for over 40 years. Learn more about our history.
