The Arrowsmith Program at TLC
a Natural Fit
Advanced neuroscience research shows that a the brain can change. When challenged, the brain strengthens the weaker neural pathways and/or creates new neuropathways around the weak areas. The Arrowsmith Program consists of specialized cognitive exercises that challenge targeted areas of the brain that contribute to learning difficulties. These cognitive exercises boost the capacity and ability of a student to perform complex tasks in areas previously strenuous.
The Arrowsmith Program brings the research in the neurosciences to the education and development of learning skills. The program is uniquely designed to address the needs of students with average to above-average IQs who struggle with learning differences.
The Arrowsmith Program tailors cognitive exercises to the unique requirements of each student. After completing the program, results show that students are able to participate in a typical academic curriculum, with most no longer requiring the supports and/or accommodations they had relied on before the program. This is why we brought the Arrowsmith Program to TLC. Our goal is to FIX learning problems so that students become comfortable, confident, motivated and independent in any learning environment. The Arrowsmith Program is a big part of the process for the students that require this level of in-depth cognitive training.

Made a Difference
“I didn’t think that taking time out from academic classes would make a difference, but it really has helped me to become a good student. I have a lot more choices in my future now.”

“Atypical Students” when it works!
Don’t miss out!
Read Barbara Arrowsmith’s book. You may identify with many of the experiences written there and find hope knowing that challenges don’t have to be permanent with the work strengthening specifically targeted areas of the brain is done.
It’s never too late to change your brain!
All the work at TLC, including the more intensive work in the Arrowsmith Program,
is based on the science of neuroplasticity to improve processing skills.
