Eaton Arrowsmith School, Vancouver, is part of a larger set of private schools and learning centers throughout British Columbia, Canada, and in Washington State that offer the Arrowsmith Program. The Arrowsmith Program is based on the principal of neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain to essentially rewire itself with training. Supported by over 30 years of experience, the Arrowsmith Program links neuroplasticity and education by demonstrating that it is possible for individuals to strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning difficulties through a program of specific cognitive exercises. This brings our students greater independence, increased cognitive, social, and academic abilities, and greater future career, school, and relationship options and successes they had never previously believed were possible. Students stay with us for 3 years on average to achieve the necessary amount of cognitive change.
