RESEARCH SUMMARY 2019

Over the last several decades independent and ongoing evidence-based research studies have been conducted on the outcomes of the Arrowsmith Program.

Brain Imaging

Changes are proportional to Symbol Relations improvement.

Reduced hyper-connectivity and increased under-connectivity between brain regions after Arrowsmith

More efficient processing

Increased activation in prefrontal cortex

NEUROPLASTICITY-THE SCIENCE BEHIND LEARNING

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’s 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.

ACADEMIC IMPROVEMENT

Before and After Results of Arrowsmith students  

Average Academic Growth: Average gain per grade over one year

 

Rate of Learning: Average grade gain per year

Results show improvement in ACER* PAT R Test (Reading Comprehension) and ACER* PAT Maths Plus Test (Mathematics)

Statistical Improvement 

The Woodcock-Johnson III: W Scores show statistically significant gains in Word Reading;  Reading Fluency; Computation; Math Fluency and Spelling

Statistical Growth

Academic Growth in Word Reading; Reading Fluency; Reading Comprehension; Spelling; Math Computation; Quantitative Concepts; Math Fluency; Written Expression; Writing Fluency; Receptive Language; Academic Fluency

Cognitive Improvement

Statistically  Growth in Cognitive Processing Speed; Number Facility; Perceptual Speed; Cognitive Efficiency; Cognitive Efficiency EXT; Letter Pattern Matching; Numbers Reversed; Number Pattern Matching; Pair Cancellation 

Cognitive Gains

Cognitive Efficiency; Processing Speed; Perceptual Speed; Auditory Processing; Attention; Fluid Reasoning; Visual Auditory Learning; Working Memory; Verbal Fluency; Short Term Memory; Long Term Memory and Phonemic Awareness

SOCIAL, EMOTIONAL, BEHAVIOURAL IMPROVEMENT

Happy Students with greater Internal Locus of Control

Increased social skills, adaptability, leadership, self-confidence.

 

Reduction in Attention Problems

Reduced anxiety, depression, hyperactivity and aggression

Arrowsmith’s cognitive exercises lead to ‘All Round Improvement’ 

  • Increase capacity and ability to learn
  • Academic Success
  • Social and Emotional Well-Being
