For more than 40 years, the Arrowsmith Program has applied neuroscientific research to help students strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying a range of learning difficulties or overcome effects of brain injury or stroke. Our goal is to help students become effective, confident and self-directed learners. For children and youth, this includes enabling them to return to school after a three to four year program, and life-changing progress in the everyday life of adult students.


Developed in Canada, the Arrowsmith Program is offered in-person and online through more than 90 sites throughout North America, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Spain, the Cayman Islands and Switzerland.
