Call in to speak with the host
At age six, Barbara Arrowsmith Young was diagnosed with a mental block and spent the next two decades struggling to read or write normally as if she were living in a 'dense fog,' which today would be identified as multiple learning disabilities — she read and wrote everything backwards, had trouble processing concepts in language, continuously got lost, and was physically uncoordinated.
Barbara’s drive and determination, led her on a journey of discovery and innovation to find solutions to her severe learning disorders. Today, she holds a Master's degree in school psychology, is the author of the international bestseller, “The Woman Who Changed Her Brain,” and founder of the Arrowsmith School and the Arrowsmith Program which helps people like herself with learning disabilities. Her program is now implemented in over 40 schools in Canada, Australia and the U.S. She has been featured on many news outlets and on TED Talks. On her journey, Barbara learned that not only does our brain shape us, but that we can shape our brains. Visit Barbara’s website at www.arrowsmithschool.org and view her TEDxToronto 2012 Talk
