In her presentation entitled “The Arrowsmith Program: Addressing Learning Disabilities—A Cognitive Approach,” Barbara Arrowsmith-Young talked about her journey of discovery, the lines of research she combined, and the outcomes achieved over her 35 years as an educator and researcher.

She described a number of learning disorders, from those that impact the learner in school to those that affect us in life. The focus was on learning disorders that impact academic performance such as reading and writing, and some of the outcome studies demonstrating cognitive and academic performance change in these areas as a result of students engaging in the Arrowsmith Program’s cognitive exercises.

There was a book signing after the event. Attendees brought their own, or purchase a copy of  The Woman Who Changed Her Brain at the door for $10.
