Eaton Arrowsmith celebrates 15 years!
The start of 2020 has been very special for all of us at Eaton Arrowsmith. It's been 15 years since we opened our doors here in Vancouver for the very first time. Since then we've had the pleasure of watching the most amazing students transform their lives by strengthening their brains capacity for learning so that they could truly reach their potential. Our evening was made extra special as Barbara Arrowsmith Young was able to join us! We extend a million thanks to her for creating this life changing program so that people of all ages can succeed in becoming the very best versions of themselves. More pictures are available on our Facebook and Instagram pages!
During the celebration we asked our alumni students to spend a little time reflecting on their time here with us. The students who wrote these words truly hope that their messages help more people to understand the power that the brain has to change. They didn't settle for leading a life full of learning barriers, and don't want others to either.  Here's one example!

Brain Corner
As this very recent article in The Guardian states, 'brain wiring could be behind learning difficulties.' “The ‘hubbiness’ of a child’s brain was a strong predictor of their cognitive profiles,” said Siugzdaite . “Children’s whose brains ‘used’ hubs had higher cognitive abilities. We observed that in the case of the children who are struggling at school, they don’t rely too much on these hubs.” We are certainly discovering this in the research being conducted at UBC and SIU. Arrowsmith Program is leading the way in improving brain network connectivity and hub activation in the brain for students of all ages with learning difficulties and brain injury/concussion!
