Conferences

Eaton Arrowsmith staff members organized the Neuroplasticity and Education: Strengthening the Connection conference for several years.

The conference covered topics like diet and brain connection, brain plasticity in children with learning disabilities, reasoning and the brain, mindfulness training and much more.

While we no longer host the conference, you can watch presentations from past conferences here.

Your presentation dovetailed nicely with brain plasticity. I believe Barbara Arrowsmith Young’s techniques make her the first brain plasticity brain trainer. The use of [conventional] time clocks and its proportionality fit nicely with programs on executive function, which we are trying to use schoolwide. I believe your work is the future of mass education.
