“Arrowsmith-Young's poignant and uplifting book about her transformation from a child born with severe learning disabilities to a dynamic pioneer in cognitive education offers hope to anyone who has ever struggled with a learning disorder, brain trauma, ADD or stroke. By her own fierce determination and passionate desire to learn, this remarkable woman changed her own brain and has since helped countless others to change theirs. This is an important book.”
—Mira Bartók, New York Times bestselling author of The Memory Palace
“This is a poignant book about two people who connected across continents and generations—a Canadian woman with an unusual cognitive makeup, and the great Russian neuropsychologist Alexander Luria whose writings gave Barbara Arrowsmith the tools to change her own life and the lives of her many students. Moving, insightful and empowering!”
—Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., the author of The Wisdom Paradox and The New Executive Brain
"If you have a son, a daughter, a parent, a spouse, or a brain, this is a must-read book. It will open your mind to new possibilities on how to deal with 'traffic jams in the brain.'"
—Alvaro Fernandez, CEO & Co-Founder, SharpBrains.com

It was also enlightening to read how Barbara slowly developed and refined her cognitive program to achieve changes in learning outcomes. Even more surprising is how Barbara incorporated in the program the therapeutic modalities of speech, auditory, visual processing, occupational therapy (output) as well as sensory stimulation in one swoop. A new dawning and evolution for those afflicted with learning deficits. Thank you Barbara for sharing your personal story and the Arrowsmith Program with us all.
The brain is not static, can and does change, and all of us can learn new skills at any time in our lives.
With respect to learning disabilities in children, Barbara's techniques should be considered lifesaving!
It is a mandatory read for all psychologists and teachers and a very informative read for all.
