Thank you to all of our Necessity customers! You may not know that Necessity is a 100% non for profit organisation and our sales in 2014 allowed us to support the funding of the Arrowsmith Program for students at the Darling Downs Christian School.
The Darling Downs Christian School is one of the first school’s in Australia to provide the ground-breaking Arrowsmith Program for students with learning disabilities. This program has helped thousands of children diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, dyslexia and dysgraphia to achieve academic and professional success.
The Arrowsmith Program is founded on neuroscience research and more than 30 years of experience showing that it is possible for students to strengthen the weak cognitive capacities that affect learning. It has proven effective for students who have difficulty with reading, writing and mathematics, comprehension, logical reasoning, problem solving, visual and auditory memory, non-verbal learning, attention, processing speed and dyslexia.
To find out about the Arrowsmith Program, the documentary “New Hope:The radical school helping kids with learning conditions rewire their brains” by 60 Minutes is available to watch.
For more information or to find out if your child is eligible, please contact the school on (07) 4659 1111 or visit www.ddcs.qld.edu.au/the-arrowsmith-program.
