Arrowsmith School helps stu­dents with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties, through a cus­tom­ized and in­ten­sive pro­gram of cog­ni­tive ex­er­cises de­signed to ad­dress the in­di­vid­ual’s unique needs. Es­tab­lished in 1978 by Bar­bara Arrowsmith Young, the Arrowsmith Pro­gram is founded on the prin­ci­ples of neu­ro­plas­tic­ity, neu­ro­science re­search, and over 35 years of ex­pe­ri­ence. The pro­gram is based on the phi­los­o­phy that the learner’s cog­ni­tive ca­pac­ity is not static, but can be mod­i­fied through the ap­pli­ca­tion of the prin­ci­ples of neu­ro­plas­tic­ity. Arrowsmith’s goal is to change the stu­dent’s abil­ity to learn through strength­en­ing cog­ni­tive ca­pac­ity, rather than to com­pen­sate or work around the dif­fi­cul­ties. The Arrowsmith School op­er­ates a full-day pro­gram, and also a wide va­ri­ety of PartTime, Af­ter-School, and At-Home Pro­grams. Arrowsmith of­fers a de­tailed as­sess­ment pro­cess out­lin­ing a stu­dent’s in­di­vid­ual learn­ing pro­file.
