IEP LEARNING CENTER
As of Fall 2022, the IEP Learning Center is a licensed Arrowsmith provider and offers programs that benefit a range of learning abilities. Learning diagnoses like dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, central auditory processing issues, executive function, non-verbal learning, visual-spatial challenges, communication, and attentional difficulties have all been addressed through the Arrowsmith programs.
Advocating for children to have an equal opportunity to access their education is the cornerstone of Inclusive Education Project. Now, the Inclusive Education Project Learning Center will ensure that all children have an opportunity to properly develop their cognitive functioning.
Research has shown that early intervention is imperative to mitigate factors that place children at a higher risk of impaired cognitive functioning in areas of academic achievement, behavior, and self-regulatory capacities. With the Inclusive Education Project Learning Center, the hope is to provide programming to help decrease the number of services children may have otherwise needed through an Individualized Education Program.
As a student of the Inclusive Education Project Learning Center, your child will have access to methodology that uses neuroplasticity to target and strengthen specific cognitive functions that underlie essential academic, social, vocational, interpersonal skills. The result: individuals learn more effectively, efficiently, and independently. Many students initially requiring learning support no longer rely on accommodation or modifications to supplement their learning. They learn with greater ease and joy.
Since 1997, numerous studies have examined the impact of Arrowsmith. Research continues throughout the world, and Arrowsmith is proud to continually contribute to science and education’s understanding of the brain and its ability to change. To date, results have demonstrated that Arrowsmith participation leads to changes in:
Brain activation and connectivity
Rate of learning in the acquisition of academic skills
Activities of daily living
Growth mindset (seeing one as an agent of change in one’s life)
We are currently accepting enrollment for U.S. based students ages 6 - 21. Our learning format is 100% virtual and can be completed from any U.S. time zone. Programming will range from flexible scheduling of an overage 4 hours per week for 10 weeks to intensive all day programs which can be completed in shorter time frames depending on the student and their circumstances.
You and your child will have access to our incredible team of teachers and advisors. Learn more about your child's team below.
