Each student in the Arrowsmith Program has his or her specific schedule of tasks and exercises to be completed during the course of a day at Eaton Arrowsmith School. The exercises for each student differ depending upon the dysfunctions requiring treatment for their learning disabilities.
Underfunctioning areas of the brain are treated like weak muscles and are intensely stimulated through mental exercises to produce strengthened learning capacities in the specific areas that have been identified, through assessment, as weak.
Each exercise has been designed to target a specific area of learning difficulty and each student’s program is tailored for that student’s particular needs. These include written, visual, auditory and computer exercises. The exercises for each dysfunction are repetitive in order to intensely stimulate specific areas of the brain. Each full-time student attending Eaton Arrowsmith School is tested at the end of each year to assess progress and the student’s program is modified as needed.Share on Facebook
