The Arrowsmith Program is based on neuroscience research demonstrating that it is possible to address learning difficulties by identifying and strengthening weak cognitive capacities.

The goal of the program is to help students strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning dysfunctions and enable them to become effective, confident and self-directed learners for life.

At Oakleigh Grammar we believe that all students can thrive, which is why we employ this world leading program that deals with the root causes of a learning difficulty, rather than managing its symptoms. Students become effective learners without having to compensate for their learning difficulties. Their ability to perform complex tasks is improved when the weak cognitive areas are strengthened.

Oakleigh Grammar is proud to offer such a life-changing program. If you believe you or your child may benefit from the program, please feel free to follow the link bellow, we are always happy to answer any questions.


The research findings reveal significant and positive changes in the abilities of Arrowsmith Program students, including meaningful changes in cognition, academic achievement and social/emotional behaviours.
