WELCOME

Living with learning difficulties can feel insurmountable for many family members. The good news is that the Arrowsmith Program has reportedly enabled thousands of people around the world to enhance their learning.

The Arrowsmith Program is based on the principles of neuroplasticity and the premise that it is possible to address a range of learning difficulties.

We are not part of the Arrowsmith organisation. We are a group of parents independently advocating for the program in South Australia.

UPCOMING EVENTS

We are holding events in Adelaide and Victor Harbor, to share information and raise awareness about the Arrowsmith Program, for people of all ages with learning difficulties. Interested people are warmly invited to attend one (or all) events.

WHAT IS THE ARROWSMITH PROGRAM?

The premise of the Arrowsmith Program is that the weaker cognitive areas that may contribute to learning difficulties can be strengthened through targeted cognitive exercises.

The goal of the Arrowsmith Program is to strengthen learning capacities rather than teach ways to compensate for or work around specific learning difficulties. The organisation has been helping children, youth, and adults with learning difficulties address their challenges and achieve academic and vocational success since 1978.

THE PARENTS ADVOCACY GROUP FOR THE ARROWSMITH PROGRAM

This Parents Advocacy Group for South Australia was incorporated to advocate for the adoption of the Arrowsmith Program in South Australian schools and other relevant organisations. We are not part of the Arrowsmith organisation.

There are currently 22 Australian schools and other organisations offering the program. However, the program is not currently offered in South Australia. Consequently, many families have travelled interstate and overseas to access the program.
