I believe that I am able to remember details of information more clearly. I also seem to make faster decisions in some circumstances.
I enjoy studying but was finding that I had difficulty retrieving the information I had learned when I wanted it. I knew I just couldn't retrieve it. It detracted from the enjoyment of study, created doubt and was time and energy consuming as I tried to recall information I had studied for use in my profession. I delayed returning to a course that involves complex concepts because the energy I would use trying to recall information was too tiring. I am starting to feel more confident that I may now be able to complete the course
My son Jamie attends the online Arrowsmith Program with Empowering Lives. The program is rewarding. Kylie and the team are highly knowledgeable and committed to helping my child.
I can definitely see the progress and improvement in my child. His learning capability has improved and he stays calmer while he learns difficult concepts at school. Thanks for all your help, team. We highly appreciate it.
There have been only a few times in my son's lifetime journey where we have seen a genuine significant improvement in his abilities. The Arrowsmith Program is one of them. It has improved his ability to think, follow instructions and problem solve. It is truly amazing to watch, and we haven't even finished yet!!!
I would highly recommend this program to all parents of similar need. My son now has better cognitive processing across all of mind activities
