Summer Extension Program
For students currently enrolled in a full time Arrowsmith program
This program is intended for students who are currently enrolled in a full time Arrowsmith program but would like to continue during their holiday break. Students will have the option of continuing with 1-2 of their regular Arrowsmith exercises. This benefits students who would like to accelerate their current progress or for those who would like to have some structure during the holiday break. Enrolment open. Next dates: 28 June - 30 July 2021.
The Summer Extension has many of the same benefits as the full time program, it is just reduced to 1 or 2 sessions per day to fit with school holidays.

The cognitive training exercises in the Cognitive Intensive Program have been refined over the past 4 decades. Since 1997 there have been more than 20 research studies involving some 700 students across six universities and nineteen different educational organizations all evaluating the effectiveness of the Arrowsmith Program. Five of these studies have had control groups and eleven have been peer reviewed. There are another four research projects currently underway at three universities.
The research involves Neuro-imaging and Behavioral studies using multiple designs recommended by the American Psychological Association. Significantly they all show very similar results– that the methods used are effective to improve student learning.
Studies show that the training exercises used in the Maths Plus+ Program lead to structural and functional changes in the brain as well as significant improvements in academic and cognitive measures. Significant improvements were measured in comprehension, mathematics, vocabulary, processing speed, attention, cognitive efficiency, reasoning, and working memory. Participants and their families report better mental health, emotional resilience, and a more positive self-concept.

The Arrowsmith Program has changed my life. It's amazing. It's like information can now get into my brain. I understand things better and I can see things more clearly...I now enjoy reading. I use better words and my thoughts flow without having to think. I am more calm and capable. I can recognise and read people's emotions a lot better. I can communicate better and I have a better relationship with my family...It's like I was living in a fog and since Arrowsmith the fog has lifted.
The Arrowsmith Program has allowed me to explore possibilities that I thought previously closed to me...I used to feel like I didn't have control over my future. I was very reactive and had a lot of bad habits. Arrowsmith has improved my ability to understand the perspective of others and communicate more openly. I can see things in a new way and I feel less frustrated because now I can understand the situation. I now have the ability to talk to people. I now am able to set goals and see what I need to do to get there.
The Arrowsmith Program has given me the ability to think faster and think more clearly. I moved [to Phuket] from Singapore to take the program...I have lived with learning disabilities my whole life, this is finally my chance to make things better...It is hard work but it is worth it.
