Jason Kinsey, Mr.
The Arrowsmith Program of cognitive exercises was developed by Barbara Arrowsmith Young and first offered to students with learning disabilities in 1978. Arrowsmith School was founded in 1980 and has operated continuously in Toronto since then. Arrowsmith School has over 35 years of experience demonstrating that we believe it is possible for students to strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning dysfunctions through a program of specific cognitive exercises.
The genesis of the Arrowsmith methodology lies in Barbara Arrowsmith Young’s journey of discovery and innovation to overcome her own severe learning disabilities, a detailed description of which appears in her book, “The Woman Who Changed Her Brain.”
At Arrowsmith School we are guided by these values:
Compassion – a deep commitment to all people as we believe this work alleviates human suffering.
Transformation – we believe that students realize their potential and change their lives opening up a world of different possibilities.
Passion and Belief in the Arrowsmith Program
Integrity – we are committed to the fundamental design and core principles of the Arrowsmith Program
Continuous Improvement – dedication to be a learning organization which continuously improves through grassroots implementation, technology, and research.
At Arrowsmith School our mission is to help people with learning difficulties, and their families, to lead happier and productive lives through understanding and the practical application of cognitive enhancement.
