Business Description

We are a group of parents who are advocating to have the Arrowsmith Program run in Cairns to help people with learning difficulties.

The goal of the Arrowsmith Program is to help participants strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying their learning dysfunctions and to enable them to become effective, confident and self-directed learners for life.
It is a Cognitive Therapy Program that does not teach content, but changes the participant’s capacity to learn so that they can understand, absorb, retain, process and use the content. This lays the foundation for learning by strengthening critical cognitive functions necessary for meaningful participation in society. It enables those participating to experience life with strengthened cognitive function and to succeed where before they struggled and often failed.
The program is open for use within a school curriculum or as a stand alone course for those beyond those early years.
