A Michigan school will implement this fall a program designed to improve skills among students with learning disabilities. The Arrowsmith program, created and and more widely used in Canada, does not adhere to a specific curriculum but instead consists of brain exercises aimed at improving the precise skills affected by a student's disability. Students attend the program for three to four years, until they are able to learn in mainstream classes. "For the first time ever in her school life, she's able to come home and do her own homework," the mother of one student said.
