The True Story of How Barbara Arrowsmith-Young Used Brain Science to Help Children with Learning Disabilities Did you know our brain is plastic?!That's right: because "plastic" means it can change. Told as a child she would never overcome her learning disabilities, Barbara found ways to change her brain and improve her ability to learn. Now know as "the brain pioneer" for her groundbreaking research using what's now known as "brain plasticity" to help children with learning problems, she has transformed how people with LD are perceived and educated. She created her own brain improvement program, and opened the Arrowsmith School in 1980 to bring the program to other students. Today there are over 100 schools offering the program around the world. The program can also help adults who have brain injuries from stroke or accidents. This book shows how children with learning disabilities and people who have suffered brain injuries can change their brains.
