A worldwide bestseller, this is the incredible story of a woman who struggled with severe learning disabilities, built herself a better brain, and started a program that has helped thousands of others do the same.

UPDATED EDITION WITH NEW CHAPTER ON LATEST RESEARCH AND CASE STUDIES

Barbara Arrowsmith-Young was born with severe learning disabilities that caused teachers to label her slow, stubborn - or worse. As a child, she read and wrote everything backward, struggled to process concepts in language, continually got lost, and was physically uncoordinated. She could make no sense of an analogue clock. But by relying on her formidable memory and iron will, she made her way to graduate school, where she chanced upon research that inspired her to invent cognitive exercises to fix her own brain.

The Woman Who Changed Her Brain interweaves her personal tale with riveting case histories from her more than forty years of working with both children and adults. Recent discoveries in neuroscience have conclusively demonstrated that, by engaging in certain mental tasks or activities, we actually change the structure of our brains - from the cells themselves to the connections between cells. The capability of nerve cells to change is known as neuroplasticity, and Arrowsmith-Young has been putting it into practice for decades through her own Arrowsmith Program.

This updated edition of the international bestseller includes a new chapter that examines the latest research demonstrating the positive impact of cognitive exercises on students' brains, as well as new case studies that show how the Arrowsmith Program has transformed lives. It also offers a list of schools worldwide that have embraced the program.
