Neuroplasticity and reversing learning challenges

A cognitive function framework of understanding behaviour and specifically. learning difficulties will be explained, insights into learning difficulties from current imaging research and research outcomes of a neuroplastic approach to addressing learning difficulties will be discussed, along with principles that drive neuroplastic change. The Arrowsmith Program is offered in over 86 educational organizations in 9 countries.  Ongoing research with neuroscientists, neuropsychologists and psychologists is demonstrating that the program not only changes the brain, cognitive functioning, and academic achievement but also leads to social-emotional well-being.
