Cognitive Programs for Adults with Learning Difficulties

Eaton Arrowsmith also offers programs for students over the age of 18 through the Eaton Cognitive Improvement Centre, which has locations in Vancouver, BC and Redmond, WA.

ECIC gives young adults with mild, moderate or severe learning difficulties the chance at an independent future. Whether you are preparing for the GED, planning to finish high school through the Dogwood Diploma, transitioning from high school to post-secondary school, or preparing to enter the workforce, ECIC can help you.

ECIC’s mission is to support individuals in a compassionate learning environment as they change their cognitive functioning, which improves the quality of their lives, leads to greater ease and rate of learning and provides enhanced opportunities in higher education and employment.

ECIC offers a safe and respectful learning environment that many students say has a family feel. For some, talking about their learning difficulties wasn’t something they were even willing to do before enrolling in the program. Like Eaton Arrowsmith, ECIC uses the Arrowsmith Program and principles of neuroplasticity – the theory that the brain can be strengthened at any age through cognitive exercises. Each student’s time at ECIC is structured according to his or her individual learning needs, but most students require a two to four year program.

ECIC Vancouver is accredited by BC Private Career Training Institutions Agency (PCTIA).

I never used to understand life or what it meant, but since I have been doing this most amazing program, I love my life so much. This program is amazing – the way it changes your life and helps open your eyes to the important things. Now I can dream again and know that one of my many dreams will come true!
