“Reading this was very moving for me. These children are in my office often and I see their strengths and feel very sad that we do not give them specific help during their crucial developmental years. Medications may be necessary at times, but they are not addressing the underlying issues. I imagine a time where all of our education is better matched to children, and applies the exciting emerging information from neuroscience research on attachment, emotion regulation, motor development and cognition. Many thanks.”

The Arrowsmith Program is changing children’s lives in ways never before imagined. Designed to improve the cognitive functioning of children with learning disabilities, the Arrowsmith Program is reshaping how we conceptualize intervention/remediation approaches in schools today. Drawing from his own experiences directing Eaton Arrowsmith School in Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, Howard Eaton, Ed.M., author, speaker, principal, teacher, and educational assessor, shows how children with significant learning disabilities improve their cognitive capacities and find academic success.
