Oakleigh Grammar introduces Arrowsmith Program in 2016

Oakleigh Grammar is delighted to announce the introduction of the Arrowsmith Program for the commencement of the 2016 School Year.

The Arrowsmith Program is founded on neuroscience research and over 35 years of experience demonstrating that it is possible for students to strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning dysfunctions through a program of specific cognitive exercises.

The Arrowsmith Program identifies, intervenes and strengthens the weak cognitive capacities that affect learning.  Students are able to capitalize on their increased learning capacities and after a three or four year program can function without special education assistance or program accommodations. Upon completion of the program some students may require one to two years to gain experience using their newly strengthened cognitive capacities and some students may need tutoring initially to bring academic skills to grade level given the limited amount of time within the program to address academic skill deficits.
If a student is unable to complete the three to four year program, they achieve benefit for every year they are in the program. The Arrowsmith Program is suitable for students across the broad spectrum of mild to severe learning problems.

Our program has proven effective for students having difficulty with reading, writing and mathematics, comprehension, logical reasoning, problem solving, visual and auditory memory, non-verbal learning, attention, processing speed and dyslexia.

An information session for families who may be interested to hear more about the program will be held on Thursday 3 December at 3.30pm in our 9Ways Centre.  The program is suited for students in Years 3 to 10.

For further information please contact our Enrolments Officer, Mrs. Anne Byrne on 03 9569 6128 or abyrne@oakleighgrammar.vic.edu.au
