The Arrowsmith Program is a key pillar of the learning support program at UWCT and has been facilitating the Cognitive Enhancement Program for 6 years. Our students enjoy an inclusive UWCT experience with participation in the range of classes, CCA’s and events available.
The Arrowsmith Program is based on the philosophy that it is possible to address specific learning difficulties by identifying and strengthening weak cognitive capacities. The Arrowsmith Program first identifies areas of learning strength and weakness within the student through careful assessment in order to create an individualised learning profile. It then utilises the science of neuroplasticity to design a programme of individualised exercises that target the student’s precise areas of weakness. The programme can offer potentially life-changing results for students with a range of learning difficulties, and has benefitted students that have experienced difficulty with reading, writing, mathematics, comprehension, logical reasoning, problem solving, visual and auditory memory, non-verbal learning, attention, processing speed and dyslexia.

There are around 100 billion cells that make up the brain. These neurons alter in structure and function throughout a person’s lifetime, in response to training and experience. Since the 19th century, neuroscientists have been researching and identifying different areas of the brain, understanding that different areas of the brain work together to carry out complex mental activities.
