Barbara Arrowsmith-Young

About

Barbara Arrowsmith-Young is the founder of the Arrowsmith Program, a suite of cognitive programs based on the principles of neuroplasticity which change the brain’s capacity to learn. Her book, based on her own experiences, is The Woman Who Changed Her Brain: And Other Inspiring Stories of Pioneering Brain Transformation.

The genesis of the Arrowsmith Program of cognitive exercises lies in Barbara’s journey of discovery and innovation to overcome her own severe learning disabilities.

Barbara holds a B.A.Sc. in child studies from the University of Guelph and a master’s degree in school psychology from the University of Toronto.
