Neuroplasticity, also known as brain plasticity, is the brain’s ability to change both its physical structure and its functional organization in response to training and experience – to grow dendrites (the branch like structures on the cell body of the neuron which receive signals coming from other neurons), to form new neural connections, to strengthen existing connections, to grow new neurons, to increase neurotransmitters – all of which fundamentally change the brain’s capacity to learn and to function and this can happen throughout the lifespan.

International Education Policy is based upon the pre-existing idea that the brain’s anatomy is fixed.

It was thought that a learning difficulty is for life and it was necessary to ‘compensate’ and ‘work around the problem’. Research now proves this is not the case. 

Why compensate when you can change?

Using neuroplasticity your brain can create new neural connections and strengten existing ones.

By targeting weak areas with specially designed cognitive exercises our students improve their brain’s ability to perform complex tasks. 

A Cognitive Profile is like a fingerprint.

Arrowsmith targets 19 different areas of the brain. To find out your cognitive profile take our free on-line test. Results are confidential and immediate.


Arrowsmith is Internationally recognised as a leader in helping children and adults with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, auditory processing and working memory difficulties. 

We have over 40 years’ experience; our individual programs use neuroplasticity to improve cognitive capacity and the effectiveness of Arrowsmith is proven with scientific research and brain imaging.

Our free online test will help identify areas where you may need some help with learning and it will provide some immediate feedback.
