Research of the Arrowsmith Program’s Summer Cognitive Intensive Program

Posted on October 9, 2018

Research has identified that there is a neurobiological basis for learning difficulties. Neuroscientists around the world have been studying the brain networks responsible for various behaviours such as reasoning, attention and memory and language processing. In education, the approach to learning disabilities has been to find ways for the brain to compensate for these neurological difficulties. Recent research out of Southern Illinois University on the Arrowsmith Program’s Summer Cognitive Intensive Program highlights that brain networks responsible for reasoning, attention and memory can improve in connectivity through cognitive training; and thus compensation strategies – that are currently a focus in educational planning for those with learning disabilities – are not the only option. The implications of this research is significant for the field of Learning Disabilities.
