About this camp

Arrowsmith School Cognitive Intensive Program
 

Arrowsmith School’s Cognitive Intensive Program targets the Symbol Relations cognitive function that processes & understands ideas. This important cognitive function is involved in processing concepts, understanding & quickly grasping what we read & hear, gaining insight, logical reasoning, seeing connections between ideas, cause & effect processing, & mathematical reasoning.


The Our Kids review of Arrowsmith School Cognitive Intensive Program

 

The Arrowsmith School was founded in 1980 by Barbara Arrowsmith-Young to provide support for struggling learners. The school has been an object of interest ever since, due to the concept that Arrowsmith-Young built her program around. "If we look at a lot of special education programs, the majority assume the learner is fixed," she said. "What my program is saying is that we can change the learner so they can learn." While there are many things that set the school apart, that sense of what is possible is prime among them. The Cognitive Intensive Program extends the work of the school, based in a like model and similar goals. Each year it hosts both adults and school age students who arrived from literally from around the world--as close as the US, and as far as Australia. They come because of the success of the program as well as its uniqueness—there is literally nothing like it in terms of approach and outcomes. And the outcomes are these: taking struggling learners, specifically around cognitive function and symbol relations, and helping them develop as learners and growing into a more accurate understanding of their academic abilities and what they are capable of. It’s life-changing in every way. The program promises a lot, and it consistently delivers all of that and more.

Reviews & Testimonials

  • Cognitive Intensive Program - Week 3 Improvements
    Adult student — Camper

    “I’m noticing that my reading comprehension is better. I’m studying at night while here in Toronto, so I don’t get too far behind. I’ve always struggled with Latin. I need to have it for my degree and it’s been a real challenge up till now. This past week I’ve noticed that I am getting about 60% of my translation correct on the first try, compared to about 5-10% before doing the CIP. That is very satisfying. I’m reading my text books faster and not as much as I did before. I have more energy. And, my roommate tells me that I’m talking more and making more sense when I talk. So, I think that is all good. I’m really pleased to see what has taken place in the first three weeks, and can’t wait to see what will happen in the next three.”

Arrowsmith Programexpand

The Arrowsmith Program is based on the application of neuroscientific research and for 40 years we have worked to help students strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying a range of learning difficulties. Our goal is to help students become effective, confident, and self-directed learners. For children and youth, this includes enabling them to return to a regular school after a three to four year program. Our program is offered at schools throughout North America, the Cayman Islands, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Spain, and Switzerland.

Introductionexpand

Arrowsmith School Toronto and Arrowsmith School Peterborough are privately owned co-educational and non-denominational day schools that are dedicated to helping students with learning disabilities. Arrowsmith School in Toronto was established in 1980 and Arrowsmith School Peterborough opened in 2005. The Arrowsmith Program is founded on neuroscientific research and 40 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.
