Barbara Arrowsmith-Young is the Creator and Director of Arrowsmith School and Arrowsmith Program, and the author of the international best-selling book The Woman Who Changed Her Brain (www.barbaraarrowsmithyoung.com/book). She holds a B.A.Sc. in Child Studies from the University of Guelph, and a Master's degree in School Psychology from the University of Toronto (Ontario Institute for Studies in Education). Arrowsmith-Young is recognized as the creator of one of the first practical applications of the principles of neuroplasticity to the treatment of learning disorders. Her program is implemented in 54 schools internationally. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

This is so interesting. As a retired teacher and later lecturer in education l have had to try and change my brain to be able to help my young grandson who is on the autistic spectrum, to shape his brain and also, learn to speak. I am still learning but he is now helping me though he does not speak yet, by wanting to communicate what his needs are to me.

So you can’t even benefit from her talk and less you attend her school which is in the thousands.

My own issues (in first grade) pale in comparison, yet I believed sentenced me to a limited and lonely life. After 50 years of following that incorrect default program, I started to question it. In finding new and True answers, I am regaining the confidence that was long ago lost. My current belief system is reshaping my innermost thoughts toward social connection and success. It has taken me a decade to reach the point where rapid improvement is mine. I believe that my adaptable brain is increasingly on board with realigning itself to my new belief system. Constant fear and worry are giving way to excited exploration of new possibilities. At 11:12 it breaks my heart too...to have lost so very much of my life's potential...and to feel such anger that current understanding is not universally applied. I have no such anger for my childhood 'directors', for they did what they thought best without malice. To ignore better ways is malicious, contemptible, and must be addressed. Thanks for this very inspiring talk.

Easily the most useless ted talk I've ever seen. She talks about a process,exercises, a procedure all very vague and not helpful.Most of the other ted talks I watch summarize the main ideas and provides example or real life procedures on what they did.If you want to read the book for those ted talks sure why not always aim for self improvement.This on the other hand leaves me with no idea on how to do what she did.Inspiring story sure useful not really

A great talk, thank you. Many so-called 'special needs ' children today suffer from the stigma and humiliation of being unable to undertake basic tasks through a lack of cognitive stretch. Many average children however also find maths and clocks challenging. I would like to have been given even one example of the exercises she devised - did she have help in devising them? In other words, did she understand the process by which she could repair her brain or did she simply rote learn how to read a clock? Did she know that conquering one challenge would have exponential benefits in other cognitive challenges? There is a lot more to be known and understood about her recovery process.

We shared the same childhood dysfunctions, we both had fathers that changed our way of thinking - our only difference she knew her diagnosis, I only learnt of mine 2 years ago and I am now 60. This woman has so inspired me - my father taught me all those games she herself used, I still do them to this day and I am sure that is why I made it thus far. This talk brought me the validation of me. I cannot thank you enough xx

She is too nice not to share any of those exercises even in her book she was just advertising for her school.
gessie (1 месяц назад)
An important talk, though long-winded and including unnecessary information, so here's the TL;DR: Woman is born with the inability to conceptually understand relations (cause/effect for example), was told to find workaround solutions with marginal benefits. Instead she researched neuroplasticity and came up with her own exercises to remedy the problem, which worked extremely well and within three months. The advice she had been given was wrong. Conclusion is that learning disabilities should be remedied through neuroplasticity training, and that we should stop telling children with learning disabilities that they'll be that way for life, because they don't have to be.

Ok this is amazing but what did she actually do? All she talked about was enriching her environment... talked about adding hands to a clock and then 4 months later she’s reading philosophy books. What did she actually do??!! What “exercises” did she do? “I created exercises for this, for that...” what were the exercises? I’m a teacher this would help me teach my students tremendously
Ted Mechnick (1 месяц назад)
Being a person who has had a brain injury the tools I used to get better were increasing the amount of difficult things I did to challenge my mind. I think that builds back brain function. Never giving up on the hope I would be better. I short getting tough on my brain to let it know I will not succumb to a mediocre life when I know I am so much more. The greatest part of the human condition is the ability to change if desired.

Excellent! Brain exercises should definitely be a major part of every class taught, to strengthen all areas we are learning at that time. This is so exciting. I wonder how long it will take our education system to catch on. For slower learners, or those with learning challenges, this might just be the answer.
Humerah Yousef (11 месяцев назад)
Thank you for sharing and inspiring others. Through videos like these, I can attempt putting the puzzle together. Perhaps, someone can shed some light on the heart, which actually guides and balances the brain. I have witnessed people who are genius, but have destroyed their own lives due to allowing darkness in their hearts​. And, these people themselves are at the top in the medical field. So, my personal gathering is that the desire reminessing in the heart signals the brain to nueroplasticity ​undetectably. Therefore, the origin of the venture takes place in the heart. Even people who don't have a mental block can enhance the brain, by focusing on the heart.
Will Tabacchi (11 месяцев назад)
Such great news - Barbara spread the word at the grass roots level -tell us what are the exercises? You have our attention -now tell us the exercises
EmmieTuesday (11 месяцев назад)
she doesnt say “how” because she owns a school, only in canada, to teach her process. If she shared “how” she would not be so reknown or be able to achieve what she must earn. same old song and dance...proprietary info, and a tease.
Katie Kat (1 год назад)
She seems like a nice person BUT her story is so inconsistent that what she is saying couldn’t have happened like she says. Either she is a liar but she doesn’t seem like it. Although there are those weird people out there that make up stuff for attention. Or she’s exaggerating. Or she’s confused and things didn’t happen like she said. You can’t say that you can’t comprehend concepts and then say you followed you dad’s advice which couldn’t be any more concept full than it is. You can’t say you don’t understand 2 hands on the clock but when you made a plan suddenly you self taught yourself how to know a clock after all the years of being taught and not getting it. And as a topper to that you self taught yourself 4 or 5 hands on a clock and could comprehend that? She was in school and people were trying to teach her so there was stimulation. Why at 25 yrs old and self teaching yourself is better than when your a child with more brain connections? She can’t comprehend spatial stuff or math and yet she got as far as taking Geometry? That’s taught after Algebra 1 & 2. Even if it isn’t how she get that far and yet couldn’t comprehend anything? She’s exaggerating. There’s no way that you think you have a literal block in your head and the next thing you know you make your own lessons to be able to divide time on a clock by 4 or 5 hands. She may seem nice but she is obviously a nut.

Ana Larson (1 год назад)
She is the reason I always strive to let everyone I worked with know they can and they matter, they just needed to embrace the inability to find their greatest ability, Barbara here is a prime example of that. Why limit learning and moving forward because of one part of us that is different or complicated. Kudos and blessings to all who don't give up and may we all move forward.

She speaks so eloquently now, and yet she had no idea how grammar works when she was a child. This is truly a wonder!
Redblade (1 год назад)
The speaker is so wrong, the brain is not who we are, the brain is an organ and which is part of the body. We exist as conscious beings outside of the body... Furthermore, having letters after her name means nothing; she has not proved anything to us by just talking and writing a book on what she claims to have done with her pseudo science (she comes across as a fraud).

paisleyyama (1 год назад)
I don’t believe her. How can someone who can’t understand basic concepts like an aunt or telling time, and the written word is mumble jumble to her, how can she not only get through a geometry class, but also graduate from college? If she accomplished these things AFTER fixing her brain, I would say that was magnificent, but to say she did that when her brain was in complete disarray makes me doubt her story. I believe she is just exaggerating to get clients to “teach” them “ her exercises “. It is a scam for profit.
anz10 (1 месяц назад)
You learn facts and sometimes that is enough to pass. Abstract ideas are for advanced teachings.
niceviewer (2 месяца назад)
paisleyyama — it is confusing. She is studying psychology reading neuroscience books but can’t understand relationships? Maybe she left out a part of the story for brevity. I would like to know how she made accommodations during her studies.
